Why Convert Oil to Gas?
If you’re on the fence regarding oil to gas conversion, consider the following:
- Cost—The price of oil is high and steadily climbing, but that’s not the only reason why oil furnaces are hard on your wallet. Oil is simply not the most efficient fuel source. It actually takes one dollar MORE to produce the same amount of heat with oil than it would with natural gas. The difference of a dollar adds up fast, especially when you’re constantly running your furnace to keep warm during the harsh New England winters! The initial oil to gas conversion cost will be well worth the long-term savings.
- Lower maintenance—Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. This means that when you make the oil to natural gas conversion, you’ll say goodbye to nasty byproducts like soot and ash. That translates into less time and money spent having to performance routine furnace cleaning and maintenance.
- Environmental impact—Natural gas emits less carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides when burned, therefore reducing the amount of pollutants that enter the atmosphere as a result of heating your building. When you choose oil to natural gas conversion, the main byproducts of warming your home will be carbon dioxide and water vapor.
When you choose to make the conversion from oil to gas, there are two options: burner replacement or complete gas furnace installation. Burner replacement simply means that components of your oil-burning furnace will be removed and replaced to be compatible with natural gas fuel. This is a quicker, cost-effective way to reap the benefits of oil to gas heat conversion right away, but it can only be as efficient as your current furnace.
Complete gas furnace replacement is a more involved process, but the total switch ensures that you’ll enjoy the very latest technology, maximize energy efficiency, and optimize the long-term savings of a gas heating system. The technicians at Affordable Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning can determine which furnace model and size will best serve your home after an oil to gas heat conversion and recommend one that will accommodate your needs.
