Vermont Natural Gas Conversions
Over the past 20 years, there has been little difference between heating oil and natural gas prices in Vermont. But with today's surging oil prices, we understand why some Co-op members are thinking about switching to natural gas.
If your heating equipment is twenty years old or more, it may have many years of life left - but it is only about 70% efficient. New heating equipment - oil or gas - is at least 85% efficient - so whether you stay with oil or switch to gas, you save money with new heating equipment.
If your heating equipment is less than ten years old, you may be able to replace the burner with a gas unit rented from Vermont Gas. If you want to heat an addition, rooms that need extra heat or are not used very often, compact, energy-efficient space heaters are a good choice. You can choose from oil-, kerosene- or gas-fired models.
If your oil furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old, and you're thinking about switching to natural gas, give us a call. We now install gas furnaces, boilers and space heaters.

I would like to thank you for assisting me in getting a grant from the State of Vermont for a new tank, slab and roof ..... Your furnace man told me my tank would need to be replaced, and told me about this grant for low-income households ..... Your staff helped me out a lot and I would like to thank each and every one of you. This is a big expense, and with your help I was able to get it done with little cost to me. Thank you all again.
