Benefits of Oil to Gas Conversion

What are the Benefits of Switching to Natural Gas?

For years, oil and gas for home heating were highly competitive with consumers seeing little difference in price between the two. However, recent advances in technology have greatly increased the availability of natural gas. As a consequence, natural gas users are now enjoying lower costs than homeowners relying on oil, triggering a trend toward converting from oil to natural gas.

Natural Gas is Safe

Gas industry experts point to the exemplary safety record of natural gas. Homeowners know immediately if a gas leak is present as an odorant is added to make it very clear when a gas appliance or supply line is in need of service. Of course, the gas must also get to the home or business, and Connecticut gas companies go to extraordinary lengths to keep the supply infrastructure secure. Other types of fuel require trucks to deliver the fuel to a home or business, providing opportunities for spills or accidents natural gas is not subject to. In the event an interior gas line or appliance does develop a problem, a quick call to Tri City will provide 24-hour emergency service.

Natural Gas is Economical & Reliable

Oil to Gas conversion provides home and business owners with an economical solution to high heating bills. Obviously, all utility prices are subject to many variables, but with the abundance of domestic natural gas production, it is likely prices will remain reasonably stable for many years. That should provide home and business owners with a sense of security as natural gas costs will likely remain lower than competing fuels in coming years.

Natural gas supplies are rarely affected by weather conditions or damage as well. On the other hand, oil deliveries are easily compromised during severe weather, placing homes and businesses at risk.

Natural Gas is Environmentally Friendly

Today’s natural gas burns cleaner than in the past. Nitrogen oxide content is significantly lower, reducing the potential for air pollution related to the fuel. There is also no danger of spills contaminating the surrounding soil as is frequently seen with oil. Environmentally conscious consumers generally recognize gas as the better alternative for home heating.

Natural Gas Does Not Need Any Storage

Another benefit of natural gas is the fact that there is no need for home or business owners to deal with underground storage tanks that are susceptible to leaks. In-home oil tanks also leak, contaminating the surrounding area and leaving unpleasant odors that are difficult to eliminate.
