What is Involved in an Oil to Gas Conversion?
Changing your plumbing system from oil to natural gas can be an effective way to reduce your utility bills. But before making the switch, it is important to know what is involved. The first step is to contact your natural gas provider and determine whether or not your home has an existing gas line. If not, a new gas line may need to be installed. If your home is in a rural area, a new gas line may need to be installed in the whole neighborhood.
There are a lot of benefits to an oil-to-gas conversion. You will save money on your energy bill, as natural gas costs less than half of what home heating oil costs. Plus, home heating oil prices fluctuate wildly, while natural gas prices are fairly stable. Changing your plumbing system to natural gas will increase your home’s resale value by 4 percent. Furthermore, natural gas systems are generally considered cleaner and are preferred by many homebuyers.
