Very often people wonder which is better for their home, oil or gas?
Well there are many factors to consider when tackling this issue. Oil and gas have been the two main options available in the markets. But in recent times, gas has been overpowering the market for many reasons.
For one, pricing is one of the main determining factors. Gas prices are far more reasonable and cheaper than oil. In our current times, oil brings more expenses to an owner than gas units. For example, oil tanks run the great risk of leakage which can potentially be dangerous to the environment and is also expensive to maintain. There are strict city and state guidelines placed upon owning and the removal of an oil tank. If for any reason oil is leaked into the ground, owners of the property must pay for inspection as well as rid the ground from the excess contamination of the oil. This in all could incur great deal of expenses. For this, many turn to the conversion to gas.
It is better to pay a onetime fee for a gas conversion, than to periodically experience mishaps with an oil tank. In addition, with the use of gas you will be able to have far more precise temperature control for your water heating, hot showers, and baths. By using gas, your boiler would be heated faster than regular. Gas is far more energy efficient and just right for the environment. Through the burning of natural gas, fewer harmful particles will be in the air; which means far less will enter your lungs. Most importantly, using gas compared to oil allows for a lesser amount of carbon dioxide to be excreted in the air. This is better for your health and for the environment overall.
Most of all, use of gas creates abundance room for convenience. You will never run out of fuel. You will not have to worry about cleaning a mess of any leakage. You will simply turn the switch on or off and you have heated your home all the way through. You will not have to deal with contamination of your soil, or any messy oil leakages that come from your oil tank. No oil company can ever dispute the fact that oil tanks can be messy and are messy to have. Plus, you will only have more space after you get rid of that space hoarding oil tank.
Gas and oil are rival siblings, but we all know the way to go is the natural gas way. At Rite Rate, we highly recommend home owners to consider an oil to gas conversion, for a more efficient easy to maintain and long lasting home heating system.
