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 volatile oil prices, we understand why some Co-op members are thinking about switching to natural gas.

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 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 having the Co-op install a new super-efficient heat pump. You will save money and get air conditioning as well! 

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.

Our Member Testimonials

  • On Time and On Budget
    Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work and guidance you gave us when it came to deciding what our best option for heat should be in our new (to us) house. Last winter, we survived on a wood stove and two older model kerosene heaters.
