Oil to gas conversion systems are known to be very expensive but there are numerous advantages to this path. The first most prominent reason to use this method is the means by which you obtain heating. Gas can be transferred to your home effortlessly through the underground piping networks that run through all of our homes. However the oil needed for other systems can be difficult to obtain depending on the time of year.
For instance you are almost out of oil for your system and there is an intense mid-December blizzard running rampant through your city. This can delay the delivery or acquisition of the oils necessary to heat your home resulting in lacks of heat and perhaps more dangerously a sick family.
Gas is also a green option when compared to other forms of heating. The emissions released by gas consumption are far less destructive to the environment than the fossil fuels so quickly being used up today. Natural gas is much more combustible than oil which means that it will heat your home faster, stronger, and more efficiently for longer periods of time than oil methods.
An example of this is heating a pot of water above a gas flame compared to a wood or oil flame. It will become obvious to anyone who tests this experience that the gas flame heats the water at an accelerated rate compared to oil. Gas conversion systems are safely operated outside of your home and take up little to no space compared to massive space consuming oil units that render your basement useless. Lastly, gas conversion doesn’t require anywhere near as much maintenance as the other systems and is usually limited to one or two air filter changes per year.
