OIL TO GAS CONVERSION AND YOUR BOILER

April 12, 2014

Boilers that use stored oil for fuel have been around since the earliest days of hydronic heating. However, oil boilers have started to fall out of use over the past few decades with the increasing availability of natural gas and the increasing efficiency of electric boilers. Today, many people opt to have an oil-to-gas conversion done for their home to free themselves from the limitations of an oil boiler and provide their whole home with the convenience of natural gas.

We’ll look at why people are choosing to change from oil to gas boilers and if this option is something you should investigate. Call BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for more detailed information about oil-to-gas conversions and your boiler in Westwood, NJ.

Why are people switching to natural gas?

Oil boilers are effective at providing you heat—more so than many electric boilers. However, oil does not burn as cleanly as natural gas, which makes it both less energy-efficient and more damaging to the environment. Burning oil creates polluting emissions, which are not only bad for the earth, but also lead to soot and grime inside your home.

Natural gas not only costs less to use (saving families in test studies approximately $1,800 a year), it is more convenient. Gas comes to your home from a municipal supply, while oil need to be delivered to your home in shipments. You can run out of oil, but you can’t run out of natural gas. Some homeowners also like that natural gas is a domestic product, reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

How difficult is the conversion?

The switch to natural gas first requires that your home is in an area that has access to a municipal gas line. Check with a heating service to find out if a conversion is even possible for your home. If there is a gas main nearby, your local utility company will need to dig a trench to your home, and after that the task can take a few days for heating professionals to perform the necessary work to pipe the gas to your new boiler. Although an extensive process, it will pay you back in numerous ways.

Are there any other options?

Yes: electrical-powered heaters. Ask a heating technician about the most efficient and effective electrical heating systems for your home.

How do I get started?

3 REASONS TO SCHEDULE OIL TO GAS CONVERSION FOR YOUR BOILER

January 6, 2014

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Call BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to start your conversion to the better, cleaner, more economical gas power for your boiler in Tenafly, NJ.
