Is your boiler an older model that burns oil to heat up the water in its tank? If so, you should give serious consideration to making the conversion from oil to natural gas. You might think that the process is too great a hassle. Although it is true that the conversion requires extensive and highly technical work, if you find the right company to take on the task, the job will go fast and with few problems. You’ll like the benefits so much that you will find it hard to believe you ever got along without natural gas powering your boiler.
Here are 3 good reasons you should schedule an oil-to-gas conversion with BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. You can rely on our services: we put “dependable” in our name for a reason!
Oil-to-Gas conversion benefits
- Save Money – Oil costs more than natural gas, and natural gas also burns more efficiently. This means that you will convert more of your supply of natural gas into heating power than you would a comparable amount of oil. How much will you save? The Federal Energy Information Administrations (EIA) looked into this and discovered through a study in 2011 that an average family using natural gas paid approximately $700 during a winter to heat their home, while a family using oil paid approximately $2,500! An oil-to-gas conversion will quickly pay for itself with this level of savings.
- Decreased environmental impact – Oil does not burn very cleanly; natural gas, on the other hand, is one of the cleanest burning of all fuels, creating few toxic or environmentally damaging emissions.
- Greater convenience – Have you ever run out of your supply of oil in your home at a bad time? With natural gas, you never have to worry about running out of fuel. Natural gas is piped directly into your home from a municipal supply. With oil, you have to wait for delivery—and forgetting to schedule delivery can result in a few very cold days.
Unfortunately, oil-to-gas conversion isn’t possible everywhere; you need to have a nearby natural gas pipeline, and not every location has access to this.
