Remember a few years ago when heating oil prices were on the high side? Some of your neighbors may have decided it was a good idea to convert to natural gas. Based on what’s going on today, this wasn’t the smartest move to make.
Prices have gone so low that heating oil is once again less expensive than natural gas in an apples-to-apples comparison.
That’s why converting to natural gas based on temporary pricing levels is risky business. The prices of oil, natural gas and propane all rise and fall on a regular basis, but in unpredictable ways.
The current state of energy prices really brings into question the wisdom of Connecticut’s proposed plan to fund the building of new natural gas pipelines and convert hundreds of thousands of homes to natural gas.
The fact is, residents who stick with heating oil will be using a fuel that is reliable and affordable, and that now burns cleaner than natural gas because of the much lower sulfur content and the addition of Bioheat®. By upgrading to a new high-efficiency oil heating system, you can lower your heating bills while staying more comfortable than ever.
