adjusting the room temperatureIf you’re thinking of replacing your existing oil-burning heating system, you might be comparing the costs and benefits of switching over to natural gas. While both are effective in heating your home, natural gas comes with many advantages. Here are some benefits of converting your home to Natural Gas Heating:

Cost-Effectiveness

While oil prices remain high and volatile, natural gas prices have remained relatively stable over the years. According to the EIA, average household expenditures for homes heating primarily with natural gas is $578, compared to $1,392 for heating oil.

Convenience

Oil needs to be trucked to your home to fill out the gas tank, which can lead to delays during severe weather events. Gas, on the other hand, is piped directly and conveniently.

Reduce Carbon Footprint

Natural gas is a great option if you're looking to be more environmentally friendly. It emits significantly reduced emissions of sulphur oxide, particulate, and mercury. Oil is environmentally hazardous since it is among the top contributors of smog.
