At City Fuel, we understand that one of the most important decisions new homeowners must make how to heat and protect your household.  Factors you must consider are cost, safety, availability, and comfort. Consider Oil Heat for your heating needs before making any quick decisions that may cost you in the long-run. 

Natural Gas has hidden costs:

  • Oil creates 140,000 BTU’s of heat per gallon while a gallon equivalent of Natural Gas produces 100,000 BTU’s.  You will need to burn approximately 40% more natural gas to receive the same heating equivalent as heating oil.

The conversion process to Natural Gas costs more than $10,000 in labor and parts.

  • Removal of an oil tank costs approximately $500-$1,700.
  • Installation of a chimney liner in order to prevent against possible odorless, clear and poisonous carbon monoxide leaks $2000+
  • Gas line to new furnace $400+
  • New Furnace purchase
  • Installation services
  • Removal of the existing heating system and any resulting disposal costs can easily cost $1000.
  • Natural Gas Systems and LNG storage areas are not as safe as their Heating Oil equivalent.  Recent news events across New England and Manchester, NH highlight this.

Heating with Gas is very costly and nearly 40% of energy is lost while heating when compared to using Oil Heat.  Consider Oil Heat for the following benefits:

  • Oil tank technology provides safety certified with EPA testing methods.  By purchasing an Oil Tank Warranty from City Fuel, you will receive an annual tank inspection and $1,000 Tank Replacement Warranty*(Warranty covers a normal replacement of your tank, see warranty details)

  • Unlike gas, oil heat cannot explode.  If a gas leak occurs a simply spark can cause an explosion.
  • Utilizing the same safe heating source eliminates any conversion costs.
  • Continue to receive the fastest hot water producing technology from an oil fired hot water heater while using less energy in doing so than that of gas or electricity.
