Upgrade Your Oak Ridge, NJ Home's Heating With A Furnace Conversion
You love your furnace. It's kept you warm through many a Nor'easter. It hums right along, quietly (well, mostly quietly) doing its job, keeping you and your loved ones toasty while things outside plunge into the single digits. It's great!
But it could be so much better.
With an oil-to-gas conversion, you can upgrade your old reliable furnace into the new hotness - literally. For a fraction of the cost of putting in a new system, we'll convert your current unit to burn natural gas, which is better for your wallet, better for the planet and better for your family. It turns out you actually can teach an old dog new tricks - call (973) 838-3200 today to start the lessons.
The cost to switch from oil to gas heating can vary widely depending on factors like the location, existing infrastructure, size of the home, and specific project requirements. On average, the cost can range from $4,000 to $15,000 or more. This typically includes expenses for removing the old oil equipment, installing a new gas furnace or boiler, updating gas lines and venting, and potentially modifying the chimney. Additional costs might arise if extensive modifications are needed or if permits are required. To get an accurate estimate, it's recommended to consult with HVAC professionals and obtain quotes tailored to your situation.
Converting from oil to gas heating can potentially increase a home's value, although the impact on value can vary depending on factors such as the local real estate market, the cost of energy in the area, and the specific preferences of potential buyers. Gas heating is often considered more efficient, convenient, and environmentally friendly compared to oil heating, which can make a home more attractive to potential buyers. Additionally, homes with gas heating might have lower operating costs, which can be an appealing feature for prospective homeowners. However, the increase in value might not always be significant and should be considered alongside other factors that influence a home's market value.
What's Involved In An Oil To Gas Conversion?
The first step is to make sure that your home's piping is up to code for handling natural gas, and we can help you with that. Then your home is connected to a municipal natural gas line, and we install a conversion kit that allows your current burner to use natural gas for fuel instead of oil. It's just that simple. Now you're using a more affordable, more environmentally friendly fuel and enjoying the same consistent warmth throughout your home.
An important note - most furnaces are built to run somewhere between 10 and 15 years. So if yours is starting to get up there in years, it may be more cost-effective to install a brand-new system rather than converting the current one. But guess what? We can do that too.

If you're already happy with your furnace, why convert it? Well, can you ever be too happy? Converting over to using natural gas as your heating fuel conveys more benefits than you can shake a thermometer at:
