A new natural gas installation by the Energy Co-op
A new natural gas installation by the Energy Co-op

Over the past 20 years, there has been little difference between heating oil and natural gas prices in Vermont. But with today's volatile 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. Instead of switching to natural gas, consider installing a new super-efficient heat pump.  You will save money and get air conditioning as well!  Click here to learn more about Co-op Heat Pumps.

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. To learn more, or for a free estimate, contact Joe Cobb, our service manager, at (802) 860-4090 or submit a service request.
