Should I Switch My Home From Oil To Natural Gas?

If you are unaware of the pros and cons of propane, oil and gas heating, choosing the right one for your home can be confusing. There are many benefits to switching from propane or oil heating to natural gas heating, such as cost efficiency and improving comfort in your home. Joseph Frederick and Sons has been helping people all over the Delaware area switch to natural gas heating.

A Cost Effective Option

Although there is an upfront cost to convert your home from propane or oil to natural gas, the long term savings make it worth it. Many homes can see a 10 to 20% decrease on their energy bills. Technology is improving, and natural gas furnaces today have a 98% efficiency rating. Older heating equipment which may be in use at your home currently, only has an efficiency rating of 50-80%. A natural gas furnace is also easier to maintain, cutting maintenance costs.


Less maintenance will not only save you money, but time as well. If your home uses a oil heating system, you need to constantly check the gauge on the oil tank, and schedule deliveries when you need more oil. This process can be frustrating because weather can stop a delivery from coming, and prices can change constantly. Natural gas is on constant supply, so you never have to worry about not having heat because of a missed delivery.

Added Comfort

The heat made by natural gas is 25 to 35 degrees warmer than heat produced by other means. The heat is more evenly distributed through the home, giving you consistency in every room. Natural gas is a much cleaner option than its competitors, emitting 40% less greenhouse gases and 100% less sulfur dioxide. With natural gas heating you can have peace-of-mind knowing you are having a positive impact on the environment. Choosing natural gas isn’t just for heating your home. It can be used for hot water, pools and other appliances such as a gas fireplace. These small changes from natural gas can increase the resale of your home one day.
