Boilers have been an extremely popular home heating method for a long time, and with very good cause. They are extremely durable and dependable, and they provide efficient, effective and even heating throughout a building. They also offer the benefit of operating on a variety of different fuel sources. Whereas coal was once a popular choice, now too oil is fading in popularity. Many areas even offer incentives for making the switch from oil to natural gas. If you are considering a natural gas conversion in your Fort Lee, NJ home consider this information about natural gas boilers from the home heating experts at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating Inc..
One benefit of converting to natural gas is that natural gas is a largely domestic product. This helps reduce reliance on foreign oil supplies. It also means that natural gas is generally a cheaper fuel source to purchase. Of course newer gas-model boilers are also more efficient than the old oil-burning one you may have in your basement.
Another nice perk of using a natural gas burner is that the fuel source is piped directly into your home. There is no chance that you may run out of fuel for your boiler this way. You also do not need to schedule a delivery or pay to have that fuel brought to you.
Gas boilers are a very environmentally friendly heating source as well. They produce less carbon dioxide than oil or coal-burning models and do not require the transfer of a fuel from far distance sources. Why not consider a cleaner burning, more efficient and affordable heating option in your home.
For more information about how the use of a natural gas boiler in Fort Lee, NJ can benefit you, contact BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating Inc.. We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have. We look forward to helping you find the home heating option best suited for you.

Is the boiler in your Bergen County home not producing enough heat? There could be many reasons for this, and some might be a simple resolution, such as changing your thermostat settings.
However, always check with a heating technician if you aren’t sure. Here are some potential reasons your boiler isn’t producing enough heat.
Clogged Piping System
One of the common reasons boilers stop providing enough heat is that there’s a clog in the pipes leading to the radiators or radiant flooring. For propane or oil models, you could be low on fuel. Check the owner’s manual for ways to tell if your oil is running low. Make sure the pilot light is on for gas furnaces.
No Power Going to the Unit
Always make sure that the emergency fuel switch hasn’t been turned off if there boiler doesn’t seem to be working at all. If it’s on but still not heating up your home adequately, there could be something wrong with the controls or thermostat. Also, check the fuse box for a tripped circuit breaker.
Boiler Needs Replacing
If it is determined that your boiler has reached the end of its lifespan, we can offer a variety of replacement models to efficiently heat your entire home. For oil-fueled boilers, you may want to consider switching over to natural gas. Natural gas is a cost-effective and green fuel that can be used to heat your home and your hot water. Making this switch can provide many benefits, including saving space for the tanks and never worrying about running out of fuel.

If you’re thinking about replacing the heating system in your home in Teaneck, it might be time to think about changing the fuel source for your home. The debate about which fuel source is better has been raging for quite some time and it will probably keep right on raging. Often, the debate is between oil, natural gas and electricity. At BZ Dependable, we’ve been offering high quality heating services throughout the Teaneck area for many years. We normally talk with each customer about their unique situation before we make a recommendation about which fuel is right for them. But we thought it would be nice if we put together the pros and cons of switching to natural gas.
Natural Gas: The Pros
- Cheaper – While this depends heavily on where you live, natural gas tends to cheaper to buy.
- More efficient – New gas-fired boilers tend to run more efficiently than their electric counter parts. They use less fuel to produce the same amount of heat.
- Cleaner – When compared to other fossil fuels like propane or oil, natural gas is by far the cleanest burning.
- Multi-purpose – When you run a natural gas line into your home you can use it for many different appliances like your water heater or range.
- Domestic – 84% of the natural gas consumed in America is created here.
Natural Gas: The Cons
- Combustible – Obviously, a gas-fired heating system is going to burn fuel. This means that is has to light it on fire. This is a greater danger to your home than an electric system—not only from fire but from carbon monoxide.
- Exhaust flue – Additionally, because it burns fuel, your new natural gas system will need to have an exhaust flue installed in your home.
