Converting from an oil to gas furnace or boiler makes a lot of sense for many homeowners. For years now, the price of gas has been less expensive than the wholesale price of oil. The difference has meant much cheaper monthly energy bills for homes using gas. Plus, gas prices are much more stable, meaning less unexpected price hikes than for those relying on oil burners.
Gas fired systems cheaper to operate and the’re better for the environment too. Gas fired systems cost significantly less than their oil burning counterparts. The typical gas heater cost between $3,000-$5,000. An oil furnace could cost $4,000 – $10,000 to replace.
Ultimately oil burning furnaces need replacing at some point, so it makes sense to make the upgrade to gas not only for the monthly savings in your energy bill, but the significantly lower cost of replacing the unit when it breaks down.
The northeast is known for being an oil dominant area, with around 31% of households relying on oil for their heating needs. But most home have access to a gas. It makes sense to cheaper gas heating.

<li>Usually costs $1000-$1500 – sometimes waived as a new customer</li>
<li>A meter will be installed outside your home</li>
<li>Involves digging a trench from the road to house</li>
When the connection to the main line is made, your heating contractor can install the plumbing around your home.
Before any installation work takes place, take a little time to make sure you’re getting the best deal. Sometimes gas suppliers offer rebates for new customers who upgrade from an old oil fired system. These change regularly, so it’s best to check.
