Oil to Gas Conversions
By Michael DeMattia, General Manager, McMahon Plumbing & Heating, LLC.
A prudent investment in your family’s future.
Changing older oil heating systems and swapping out to hi-efficiency, gas, heating systems has been all the rage for Boston area homeowners looking for a home improvement project with the greatest bang for the buck over the last few years.
Homeowners heating with Natural Gas versus Heating with Oil currently still save between 25 to 50%, depending on Heating System efficiency. The cost of Number 2 Home Heating Oil today averages just over $2.00 per gallon which is dramatically lower than where it was just a year or two ago, mitigating what was once dramatic savings. However, oil market expert’s consensus opinion is that crude oil and consequently home heating oil prices will be substantially higher in the next year. Suffice to say, the current respite from excessive oil prices are likely to end by 2017. Indeed, the crude oil price is up from its low of $27.00 per barrel earlier this year to nearly $50 per barrel as I write this article.
Additionally, rebates are offered by Mass Save, tax credits by the Federal Government, and low interest heating equipment loans are available to Mass Save participants. The effect of these programs is to ease the financial burden of the transition from heating with Oil to Natural Gas Heating, hasten the decision making process, and enhance the Return on Investment for your family.
Add to the fuel price discrepancy, the higher efficiency of next generation Heating System Equipment which uses less fuel and the savings in home heating expense become a major motivator to make the switch from heating oil to heating with Natural Gas for many New England families.
Concerns about Return on Investment
All of which sounds great you say. But yet, homeowners are skeptical of any ROI (Return on Investment) analysis based on the changing price of fuel oil and even more concerned about the daunting project before them ripe with pitfalls and hidden dangers which may await the unprepared or uninformed.
