New Jersey homeowners and business owners currently using heating oil may be considering switching to natural gas. There are a number of reasons why people often consider making the switch. First of all, natural gas is cheaper. Only a few years ago, heating oil prices were upwards of twice as much as natural gas prices. However, this is quickly changing – heating oil prices have plummeted over the last year, to the point where prices are only 50 percent as much natural gas prices.
Although cheaper and cleaner burning, natural gas has its drawbacks as well. Although considered a clean energy source, natural gas extraction techniques are under harsh scrutiny by regulators and environmentalist groups. Despite being cheaper than heating oil, the costs of switching from heating oil to natural gas can be quite expensive – to the point where it’s not worth the effort.
Not only is the cost of heating oil dropping significantly, but current heating oil systems burn oil at a much more efficient and cleaner rate than they ever did before. Then there are the costs of actually converting from one heating system to another that have to be considered. The following are just a few of the costs that a homeowner or business owner will have to pay for when converting from heating oil to natural gas:
Heating oil systems have become much more efficient over the years, and converting to a natural gas system can be very expensive, which means that converting from heating oil to gas is probably not worth it.
