Is your Brooklyn boiler still running on heating oil? It might be tempting to just stay with the heating system you’ve always had, but there are plenty of reasons to convert from heating oil to natural gas. Even better, now is an ideal time to make the change.
New York is phasing out the use of the dirtiest-burning heating oils, so switching to natural gas makes sense for many residents. Our heating experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating know the ins and outs of a typical Brooklyn heating system, and we can make recommendations that will benefit your unique home situation.
Still looking for reasons to switch? Here are some of the best.
Switching to natural gas requires an initial investment, but since natural gas is much cheaper to use than heating oil, you will make your investment back quickly. Use the fuel cost comparison calculator from Con Edison to find out how quickly you’ll make your money back. Spoiler alert: It’s probably faster than you think. In addition, there are rebates available to help offset the cost of switching to natural gas, meaning you’ll recoup your investment even sooner.
Since natural gas is delivered continuously through underground lines, you will never run out of natural gas, even in the worst snowstorms. You won’t have to order more or wonder if your supply will last until a truck can get through to you.
Natural gas doesn’t leave behind ashes that need to be cleaned and discarded. It burns clean without ashes. Also, it releases far fewer fine particles into the air than heating oil does, meaning your home and your neighborhood will have healthier, cleaner air.
Natural gas is an efficient, clean, convenient and safe option for heating your Brooklyn home. If you’re ready to make the switch, be sure you go with a professional installer than can get the job done right and safely.
