Make the Switch & Convert to Natural Gas
Why Convert to Natural Gas?
There has never been a better time to convert from oil heat to natural gas!
Natural gas provides a clear long-term price advantage over oil and could save you up to 40% on your heating cost as well as reducing CO2 emissions by 27 lbs. With oil prices more than double the cost of natural gas; you can help to reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil!
Did you know in addition to the natural gas price advantage, customers can also save money on electricity costs? An oil burner consumes a significant amount of electricity while running continually even in the summer to maintain temperature. Depending upon the size, this can range from $40 to $100 per year. Natural gas systems use a negligible amount of electricity. New systems installed with electronic ignition means you never waste gas with a standing pilot.
How else can converting to natural gas save you money? How about your homeowners insurance cost? Many insurance companies charge higher premiums for homes with oil tanks. This is especially the case with older or buried tanks, as they have greater potential to leak. After you convert from oil to gas, call your insurance company and let them know you’ve switched!
What about equipment life? Natural gas is a clean burning alternative to oil, coal or even propane. Clean burning natural gas systems should result in longer equipment life with proper care and annual maintenance. Natural gas systems use a negligible amount of electricity.
According to the Energy Information Administration, the price of natural gas has been falling, while heating oil prices have risen. It’s been going on for years, and isn’t likely to stop any time soon. The sooner you start heating with natural gas, the sooner you’ll start to save.
