This winter has been especially cold - giving nearly everyone higher heating bills than ever. One group of people that could be seeing lower bills this year are natural gas converts. Homeowners have been switching from heating oil to natural gas over the past decade and this winter is generating more conversions than ever. Not too many years ago, heating oil was the predominant heat source in the Northeastern US. Many homes had oil-fired boilers to fight off the winter cold. That has changed in the last decade as homeowners switch to natural gas boilers.
The US has undergone a transformation in natural gas production, making it more plentiful, reliable, and cost effective than ever. Boilers have also changed, with natural gas and propane high efficiency condensing boilers becoming a money saving "green" choice for homeowners making the switch from heating oil to natural gas.

The conversion from heating oil to natural gas is paying large dividends this winter. Many homeowners are seeing heating bills 50% or more lower by replacing their old, inefficient oil boiler with a modern high efficiency natural gas model. Massachusetts homeowner Bruce Balder is more than happy with his selection of a Triangle Tube Prestige Condensing Boiler for his natural gas conversion. Bruce reports heating bills that are 90% lower than his neighbors. If you are considering replacing your boiler, contact your local factory-trained contractor for more information.
