The heating season may be over, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore your heater for the remainder of the year. If it didn’t perform as efficiently as you’d hoped this year, there are certain factors to consider that can ensure that it performs effectively next time winter rolls around. One of our most popular services is oil to gas conversion, with good reason! While the process itself can be costly upfront, there are a number of benefits to investing in oil to gas conversion that we’ve shared below.
Unlike oil, gas is automatically delivered to your home through a network of underground pipes, provided that there is a gas main under your street. This is the case in most modern neighborhoods. Oil requires coordinated delivery amongst numerous customers. During severe weather conditions, you don’t want to run the risk that you won’t be able to get oil in a timely manner.
When it comes to using gas as a fuel source, it’s rare to hear that this is an environmentally friendly option. However, natural gas contains fewer carbon emissions than any other fossil fuel. It also produces must less dust and does not have an odor, which means your living environment will be cleaner as well.
As mentioned above, the process of converting can be costly. However, on a month-to-month basis, using gas as your fuel source instead of oil is actually cheaper. In fact, if gas prices stay where they are currently, your fuel-cost savings could potentially pay you back in less than five years.
Having access to a main gas line will allow you to invest in other high efficiency appliances that you may not have been able to before, such as a gas-stove. As this fuel-source is cheaper than electric, this is another way for you to save money.
