Natural Gas - Not All That It's Cracked Up To Be
Would you purposely give money to a nameless, faceless organization that’s knowingly harming the environment and charging you for a product they do not deliver. That is exactly what natural gas consumers are doing, according to a recent government report. With heating oil prices falling, natural gas costs rising and gas companies charging consumers for undelivered gas, don’t be fooled into converting to a natural gas heating system.
Here’s the real deal: Converting to natural gas is NOT cost-effective! In fact, it can cost up to $10,000 and maybe more.
There are so many costs involved in converting that the gas utility won’t quickly disclose, including relining your chimney, installing a gas line, putting in an excess flow valve to protect against fire or explosion, removing your oil tank, and more.
If you need a new boiler or furnace
, here’s what to do instead: Upgrade your current oil-fired equipment. You could spend half as much as you would if you converted to gas heat AND you could cut your home heating costs by up to 30% or more.
