Fall is officially upon us and while Bergen County, NJ homeowners still have some mild days ahead of them, winter will be here before you know it. If your furnace or heater is on its last legs, now is the time to consider a replacement, or at least an upgrade to help you weather the cold months more readily. By installing or upgrading now, you can save a great deal of money on monthly costs, as well as providing a cozy and warm atmosphere for your home with a lot more efficiency. We’ve listed a couple of heating upgrades to consider this fall. If your heater is in need of some shaking up, these may be just the things you need.
OIL TO GAS CONVERSION
Old-fashioned oil heaters are still in use throughout much of the Eastern Seaboard, but they’re tremendously inefficient and their environmental impact is not ideal. The good news is that you can convert your oil-based furnace to a natural gas furnace without having to go through an elaborate replacement. Natural gas cost a lot less than oil, and burns much cleaner so you’re doing more of a part for Mother Nature with it. In addition, your heating system will likely take up much less space after an oil-to-gas conversion, helping you make better use of your basement or garage.

A radiant heating system is a little more radical than a simple upgrade, but for the right household it can do wonders. Tubes or coils are installed beneath the floorboards of your home, warming people and furnishings directly through contact. That eliminates the need for drafty fans and uneven warming, efficiently transferring the heat right to where it’s needed. The up-front cost is more than a normal heater, but like the oil-to-gas conversion, you will save a huge amount on monthly bills.
