Converting oil to natural gas – does it make sense for you?
Many oil heating systems are older models that are difficult and expensive to repair – especially if they are 15 years or older. If you are considering converting your oil heating system to natural gas, read on to learn more about the process and whether it could be the right fit for your budget and household needs.
What is natural gas conversion?
Natural gas is an inexpensive, efficient, and clean-burning way to heat your home. It can also be used to fuel water heaters and a range of appliances such as washers, dryers, dishwashers, ovens, and ranges, helping to reduce your electrical usage. In addition, natural gas can fuel a variety of fireplaces to add warmth and charm to your home.
When exploring natural gas conversion, you may be surprised to learn that:
Natural gas is going green! New technologies have helped make natural gas more eco-friendly and clean-burning than ever, reducing its carbon footprint significantly compared to oil and many other fuels.
Conversion is affordable. Converting your oil system to natural gas is much more economical than replacing the system altogether. Many leading manufacturers provide conversion kits for their equipment since switching is so popular.
Natural gas is efficient. Switching to natural gas may prove more efficient than your boiler ever was. In fact, a high-quality gas system can be up to 90 percent efficient.
Best of both worlds. If you had no real complaints about your oil system, you may be happy to hear that you can keep some of your favorite aspects of your boiler when converting to cleaner, more efficient, and affordable natural gas. Many top manufacturers produce oil to natural gas conversion burners that use the same combustion system – for a fraction of the cost of a total equipment overhaul.
