Oil to Gas Conversion in Durham, NC

During the dead of winter, the onslaught of snow and frigid temperatures isn’t your only concerns. As the temperatures drop, so too does your utility funds. Expensive heating costs can add unneeded stress to any family but can be easily remedied. By switching from oil to natural gas you are saving money and energy.

With natural gas, homeowners are tied to the main feed provided by Durham’s utility provider. By not having that hideous tank lurking in the basement, you are assured of a constant fuel source. No more running out! Over the course of a long winter, you can save thousands of dollars plus natural gas is more energy-efficient than oil.

When deciding on making the switch, there are two factors to consider in home heating:

Forced-Air Furnace

  • Uses existing ductwork to deliver heat
  • Runs on same system as A/C
  • Easy to control and maintain constant temperature
  • Out of sight, out of mind. No baseboards or radiators

Radiant Heating

  • Heats water via a boiler
  • Supplies heat using radiator, baseboards, or under-floor/slab tubing
  • Energy efficient: doesn’t heat air, heats surfaces
  • No ductwork required
