Change Your Oil Heater to a Natural Gas System

Monday, October 11th, 2021

Back in the day, oil heaters were some of the most reliable systems on the market. To a certain extent, they’re not all bad. If you’ve just purchased a new home with an oil heater that’s only a few years old, then we’d advise you to at least give it a chance before getting it replaced. But you’re likely going to see high heating prices and a more difficult time getting repairs and oil deliveries for your home.

At this point, almost half of the entire United States population uses natural gas heating systems. They’re effective, efficient, and clean-burning.

Our humidity levels usually stay comfortably below 50% this time of year, which is the maximum humidity level for indoor comfort. However, albeit rare, stuffy days do occur.

This is particularly true if you live anywhere near a creek or stream, or any location that has excessive moisture. These days make your home feel uncomfortable, and can cause your AC system to work harder than normal to cool your home, meaning it’s not working as efficiently as possible.
