The cost of heating your home with heating oil is typically more expensive than heating your home with natural gas. While the initial cost of switching to a gas furnace is more expensive, the overall savings is worth the upfront cost of the switch. Natural gas is more accessible and far less expensive than heating oil, which continues to become more expensive as time goes on.
Natural Gas Requires Less Maintenance
Oil furnaces must be cleaned and maintained regularly to ensure that your home remains safe and your furnace in working order. Your natural gas supply does not make a mess, leave ashes or require frequent maintenance to clean up. There’s far less maintenance required when you choose to heat your home with natural gas.
