Thought you’d end up with oil, but it wasn’t a match? Don’t worry. With the rising energy costs associated with electricity and heating oil, many South Jersey homeowners are choosing to switch their heating systems to gas.

Before you make your clean break from oil, there are a few things you should know about gas systems.

1. Switching to gas will save you money in the long run.

            If you’re interested in seeing just how much you’ll save, use New Jersey Natural Gas’ Heating Comparison Calculator.

2. If your system is fewer than ten years old, you can install a conversion burner.

            Conversion burners are installed directly into your existing system. However, not all heating systems are compatible with these burners. This is the most economical way to convert your system.

3. Our top recommendation is a new natural gas heating system.

            These systems operate at around 95% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). AFUE is a measure of a gas furnace’s efficiency in converting fuel to usable energy. A system that operates at a 95% AFUE rating means it can turn 95% of the energy it uses into heat. For every dollar spent on heating your home, only five cents exits the chimney, meaning 95% percent of the fuel is converted into energy. These systems rank into the high-efficiency unit category.

Once you decide that natural gas conversion is the right move for you, contact Heating Specialties. We can remove your above ground oil tanks for you and convert your heating system to an energy-efficient natural gas system you’ll want to walk with into a sunset.
