Converting To Natural Gas in New Jersey
For homeowners looking to convert, understanding the process is the first step. Below is a brief overview of what goes into a full-scale conversion from oil to natural gas heating systems.
The Oil to Natural Gas Conversion Process:
- Initial Call: Homeowners ready to convert should start by calling a trusted NJ natural gas conversion company to discuss the options and ensure that full-scale conversion from oil to natural gas will work for their home or building.
- Evaluation: After the initial call, a certified NJ natural gas technician will visit your home or building to determine the scope of the project, review the needed steps for conversion with you and provide a pricing quote and timeline for the project. The price and timetable for conversion will depend on whether the home or building has a pre-existing gas line and gas meter. If so, the project will likely be simple, quick and relatively inexpensive. If no gas line or gas meter is present, they will need to be installed, and that will increase the cost and timetable of the project.
- Planning: After the evaluation is complete and a quote is agreed upon, an oil to gas conversion contractor will plan the equipment switch-out in a way that offers the home or building owner the least amount of disruption to their daily lives and downtime for the heating system.
- Conversion Installation: The old, oil-fired equipment will be removed before certified natural gas installers set up your new gas-fired equipment. All equipment setups will be done in accordance with city and New Jersey state codes. Once that is completed, homeowners will be advised as to whether the equipment used comes with tax credits or rebates. If so, homeowners will be advised on how to proceed with filing the needed claims for those credits.
