Should You Make the Switch?

Reasons to Convert From Oil to Gas Heating

In the Northeast, natural gas has a geographical advantage over oil. Suppliers in MA don’t have to depend on imports to meet natural gas needs, contributing to its lower cost and the reliability of having this material. There’s no need to rely on timely and consistent fuel deliveries, as natural gas is piped directly to your home. Although it will cost money to have the new system installed, you’ll save money over time with less maintenance and equipment costs than oil heat. Say goodbye to permits, filters, motors, and pumps.

The benefits of oil to gas conversion in your particular case will depend on the extenuating circumstances. If you have the finances to cover the initial cost of the conversion, you’ll likely see a profit in a matter of years. If the initial costs of installation and new equipment is too high, consider financing options or a different heating solution altogether. Either way, you need a trustworthy professional heating company to advise your options. Come to Kingston Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for honest heating system advice.
