Vermont Natural Gas ConversionsService Inquiry
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. Before you decide to switch to natural gas, check out the new super-efficient heat pumps from the Energy Co-op. Heat pumps cut oil, propane or natural gas use by up to 70% - and provide air conditioning all summer long!
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, heat pumps or 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.
