Oil prices can be low one day and sky high the next, so relying on oil to heat your home might not be the most cost-effective choice. Luckily, natural gas prices are constantly at a low and fair price without much volatility. Here’s what you’ll need to make the switch from oil to gas.
Line It Up
Oil deliveries will be a thing of the past when you switch to natural gas. Instead, a gas line will need to be run into your home for a constant access to the supply. First things first, contact your local gas supplier and make sure that it’s possible for these lines to reach your home.
The biggest turn off to switching is the purchase of a brand new gas furnace. While the upfront cost of a new furnace is a pretty penny, the savings in monthly bills will eventually offset it. The new furnace will have a stable monthly pricing for its fuel and since it’s brand new it will be highly efficient. Fortunately, many companies do offer rebates for added savings when switching from oil to gas.
If your home has existing gas lines running to your house because of your kitchen range, you will save a lot of money in installation. The installer will have to come to install the new furnace, but other than that they will just have to connect it to the gas meter. If you already have gas lines, why not take advantage of the future savings?
Making the jump from oil to natural gas can be a quick transition that can help you add some weight to your wallet.
