Oil to Gas Conversions Booming in Popularity
Switching your home’s energy usage from oil to gas comes with a variety of benefits. Not only will this conversion save you money, but an oil to gas conversion is also better for the environment. At Waldman Plumbing, we’ve noticed our conversion services have been in high demand, and it may be due to an increasing trend all over the country.
Reasons Why the U.S. is Switching to Gas
Natural gas production has been growing in abundance in the U.S., making oil to gas conversion a popular choice for homeowners all over the country. Since 2005, natural gas production has increased, and America’s natural gas reserves have almost doubled since 1999.
In addition to this growth in production, many homeowners are making the switch to natural gas because of the recent surge in oil prices. Due to this increase in oil prices, homeowners that have an oil to gas conversion done find that heating their home with natural gas costs almost half as much as using oil heat. The U.S. Energy Information Administration states that the number of households in the country using oil to heat their homes has dropped from 8.4 million to 6.9 million in just the past five years.
