Converting from an Oil Furnace or Boiler to Natural Gas

If you are still using an old oil burning furnace or boiler, it’s time to join other businesses and homeowners in converting from oil to gas. Oil to gas conversions save money, time, and energy.

Natural gas has become a top source of energy due to being a clean burning fuel that is mostly extracted right here in the United States. Oil prices fluctuate widely and are often imported, which increases its cost. Natural gas, however, doesn’t have to bend to the whims of such fluctuations.

Benefits to Switching to Natural Gas

If you are not certain about converting from oil to gas, there are multiple reasons to make the switch, including:

  1. Cleaner burning. Natural gas burns with fewer emissions and is better for the environment. Oil produces sulfur dioxide and carbon when burning, while natural gas produces no sulfur dioxide and far less carbon. Both sulfur dioxide and carbon are considered greenhouse gases.
  2. Cheaper. Natural gas is less expensive than oil.
  3. More efficient. Natural gas is a more efficient fuel than oil. Many oil burning furnaces have an efficiency of around 70%, but gas burning furnaces can reach 98% efficiency. This saves the consumer money by providing more heat with less fuel.
  4. Rising oil prices. Oil is a commodity traded around the world and is often imported. Importing any commodity increases its cost.
  5. The cost of conversion will often pay for itself in just a few years due to natural gas prices being lower than oil.
  6. Instead of a company hauling oil to your home or place of business, natural gas is piped directly in.

As natural gas is better for the environment, more efficient, and cheaper, converting from oil to gas is a win-win.

Savings That Make Sense

As new consumers have discovered, converting from oil to gas just makes sense. Often, oil users pay at least twice what natural gas consumers spend to heat their homes each year. By converting to natural gas, you could potentially save hundreds, or even thousands of dollars each winter.
