When every one of us first bought our home, it was equipped with an oil gas furnace.
It was toward the top of our improvement list, but unluckyly some other projects took priority.
The two of us had a leaking roof that was causing a great deal of property destruction. The current roof was a giant expense. The two of us also decided it would be smart to implement some energy saving measures before replacing the gas furnace. Tightening up the current home allowed us to purchase a smaller heating program at a lower cost. The two of us invested quite a bit of money into upgrading to Energy Star rated windows & insulating. It took us over 5 years to switch from an oil gas furnace to a natural gas gas furnace. Along with the cost of the furnace, every one of us had the expense of conversion. However, the investment was absolutely worth it. The oil gas furnace required a really giant & unattractive tank that sat in our yard. I sad about leaks & contamination. Plus, I needed to schedule fuel delivery. There was always the problem of running out & ending up with no heat in the middle of a January blizzard, but natural gas is much cleaner, convenient & environmentally friendly. The two of us have an endless supply. The current gas gas furnace achieves a 98% AFUE rating & provides ideal comfort no matter how cold the outside conditions. Because every one of us now have access to natural gas, we’ve been able to convert our oven, clothes dryer & water heater. The two of us are planning to hook up a natural gas barbecue that will eliminate the need to buy propane tanks.
