When my husband, Eddy and I first purchased our home, it was heated with an oil gas furnace. The people I was with and I weren’t ecstatic about this and instantly planned to switch to natural gas. Unfortunately, a lot of other projects took priority. Many of the windows in the apartment were either cracked, painted shut or leaked a tremendous amount of air. Replacing them all with thermal pane, Energy Star rated windows was a large investment. The people I was with and I then realized that the roof was leaking, and there was no insulation in the attic. To save money, the people I was with and I handled all of these repairs ourselves however the cost of materials still added up. The people I was with and I once again tried saving for a current gas furnace, however ended up buying a current dishwasher and making upgrades to the plumbing instead. After that, I began studying reviews of local Heating and Air Conditioning contractors, looking for a business that specializes in oil to gas conversions. Eddy and I had no clue how luxurious or involved the switch would be. Although the people I was with and I ended up taking out a apartment improvement loan to cover the cost of the project, the investment is paying for itself. Natural gas costs us far less every week. The people I was with and I no longer need to schedule our lives around a delivery schedule or worry about running out of oil. There is an endless supply of natural gas. It’s cleaner, with less of an smell and offers amazing versatility. Since having the Heating and Air Conditioning contractor install gas lines, we’ve switched over to a natural gas water heater, oven and clothes dryer. We’ve added an outdoor kitchen with a natural gas grill and we’re considering putting in a fireplace and heated swimming pool. Plus, if there’s a power failure, the people I was with and I still have access to gas and can continue to run our heater. Converting from oil to natural gas has raised the value of our apartment and improved comfort and convenience. The natural gas gas furnace maintains ideal temperature even on the coldest Winter time days.
