Oil To Gas Conversions In Plandome Heights

Gas Conversion in Plandome Heights, NY is Easier Than You Think

Many people in Plandome Heights, NY believe that oil to gas conversion is difficult to do. However, a gas conversion is a lot easier than you might think. While it might seem like a huge hassle to handle, there are plenty of options for you to choose from when considering an oil to gas conversion.

What is the history of the use of heating oil?

The modern history of oil that we know today began around the 1840s when a geologist from Canada discovered how to convert crude oil into kerosene to light lanterns. Shortly after this discovery, heating oil was invented by a man named M.A. Fessler in California. He took advantage of a large amount of crude oil in California for the use of heating oil. While doing this, M.A. Fessler founded a company called Fess System Co., which later turned into Petro. This sparked a revolution in the use of oil, which helped transform the world into what we know it as today. It is the reason that many homes in Plandome Heights, NY still use oil for heating purposes today.

What is the history of the use of natural gas for heating?

In its early history, natural gas was used almost exclusively for light. In 1885, a man by the name of Robert Bunsen invented new ways to use natural gas for heating instead of just light. He helped find new ways to use the thermal properties of natural gas, rather than just its light properties. In 1904, a few decades later, natural gas was first used to provide heating and hot water to people in London. This paved the way for the use of natural gas in thousands of homes in New York that we use today!

What is the Process of a Gas Conversion in my Home in Nassau?

The process of a gas conversion in your home in Nassau is actually a very simple process. If you already have an oil burner in your household, simply going with a converter might be the best option for you. This is a process that (relatively) easily converts your oil burner into a natural gas one. However, going through this process depends on the age of your oil burner. Generally, the rule of thumb is centered around the age of the oil burner or the fifteen-year mark. If your oil burner is younger than fifteen years, then it might be best for you to do a conversion or get repairs rather than replace your entire system. However, if your oil burner is older than fifteen years, then it might be best for you to replace your oil burner with a natural gas burner rather than convert or repair your system. 

Joe Sampson’s Plumbing & Heating, LLC Offers Professional and Expert Advice for Nassau Residents!

Sometimes this decision is an easy one to make because your oil burner is old. However, sometimes this decision can be difficult to make. It is important to talk to a professional before making a large and touch decision like this one. After all, it is your money that you are working with, and getting the most bang for your buck is very important to us! Our professional and expert technicians have plenty of training! Furthermore, they also have years of experience in the field! Just give us a call at 631-430-5057 and we will put you in touch with one of our professional and expert technicians!

What are some of the miscellaneous expenses involved in gas conversions in Plandome Heights, NY?

With any oil to gas conversion, there are some miscellaneous expenses to consider before making your final decision. Many of these miscellaneous expenses are dependent upon things such as the layout of your house. Here are some examples of the miscellaneous expenses that come with an oil to gas conversion:

  • We May Have to Line Your Chimney Properly, Depending on the Layout of Your Home

If you decide to do a gas conversion, it may require us to line your chimney properly. This could cost anywhere from $750 to $2,000 depending on labor costs, equipment required, and how much we will line the chimney. While this may seem like a strange thing to have to do, it is an important expense because the moisture in the gas exhaust can damage the masonry of your house. Obviously, we do not want to have this happen, so it is a necessary cost if your home requires it. Not every residence in Nassau requires this, so be sure to ask us before you make your decision on an oil to gas conversion.

  • Removing Your Oil Tank

Although this is probably not required for your home, you might want to have your oil tank removed. The price of this depends on if your oil tank is located above or below the ground. If it is above the ground, this expense is normally about $750. If it is below the ground, then this expense can be up to $3,000. However, removing your oil tank is probably not required for your home, but there is a chance you might want to have it removed. Be sure to talk to one of our professionals about this if you do decide to do oil to gas conversion for your home.

The Reason that Many Residents Choose a High-Efficiency System over a Basic One

The reason that many residents in NY choose a high-efficiency natural gas system over a basic one is that they do not have to pay for a liner and there are possible tax incentives involved. If you get a high-efficiency natural gas system in your home, then having to pay for a liner is not necessary. Furthermore, there are possible tax incentives involved in converting to a high-efficiency natural gas system over a basic one. All of this combined adds up financially and is the reason that many residents choose high-efficiency systems. However, be sure to speak to one of our expert technicians before making a decision like this one! Just give us a call at 631-430-5057 and we will be able to help guide you through the process of a gas conversion!
