When you stop to think about it, converting from a higher cost heating fuel like oil or electricity to gas makes sense for more than just the obvious cost savings. Whether you’re looking at a newer high efficiency furnace or even going with gas as part of a new hot water tank system, the resulting increase in equity will give you even more peace of mind in these difficult economic times. Remember there are some considerations that you need to take into account, including the fact that an expert hand may be needed to install a chimney liner. Natural gas is the way to go here for the cost savings as well as the fact that as one of the cleanest fossil fuels, natural gas it is eco-friendly. In some cases where you’ve been using a forced air oil heating system, the ductwork should be compatible with your new natural gas furnace. You need to be sure that natural gas is available in the area where you live. A call to your local heating contractor will give you an idea of the cost involved in getting a line routed to your home. Finally, remember this isn’t a DIY project since there are dangers with carbon monoxide and even the installation of natural gas where only qualified personnel that know how to handle all the circumstances that crop up during an installation can do the job properly and safely.
