Oil to gas furnace conversion

When we moved into our house, there was already an oil furnace installed. I wasn’t overly happy about this. Oil furnaces require a giant tank sitting in the lawn, taking up space and detracting from aesthetics. There are always concerns with a potential leak and the worry of running out of fuel and being left without heat. Since the winter temperatures in our local area drop down into the negative digits, heating is essential. Plus, the cold weather often lasts and necessitates heating for eight straight months. Having to schedule fuel delivery was aggravating. I wasn’t overly satisfied with the level of comfort or energy efficiency provided by the oil furnace. While I was eager to replace it, other home improvement projects took precedence. Since the furnace continued to operate, we went ahead and replaced the water heater, refrigerator and stove. We invested into new windows, gutters and repairs for the roof. We tore up the extremely ugly carpeting and put down a combination of tile and hardwood. Both bathrooms were renovated before we finally considered upgrading the heating system. I called a local HVAC contractor expecting a huge expense and project. I was pleasantly surprised by the cost of oil to gas conversion. We spent extra to buy a top-of-the-line gas furnace that achieves a 98% AFUE rating and cost-saving features such as adaptable-speed technology and zone control. The improvement has been amazing. Not only is the entire house far more comfortable, but we’re enjoying superior air quality. The furnace makes very little noise and costs a lot less to operate.
