Converting to Propane

Are You Ready to Save Green AND Be Green?

Are you scared to see your heating bill this winter? Are you looking for ways to save money? Do you wish you could help the environment? Now is the time to CHANGE to propane. Converting a home to propane is a straightforward, easy process that will leave you with lower energy bills and a cleaner environment. The average conversion takes 2 days and you could have a new system installed in as little as two weeks.

Switching from heating oil to propane means upgrading to a propane-based Hybrid System. These systems consist of a heat pump that is primarily fueled by propane and has a fossil fuel backup.

Why Switch to Propane?

There are many reasons why switching to a propane system is a good investment:

Better Efficiency

New propane appliances are typically 97% efficient - compared to the usual 56% efficiency of 20 year old heating oil appliances.

Better for Your Wallet

With a hybrid system, you'll enjoy increased efficiency and less volatile pricing - which means smaller, more consistent energy bills.

Better Maintenance

Propane systems are less expensive and cleaner to maintain.

Better Versatility

Heat your home, cook your food, dry your clothes, heat your water, light your fireplace, and have back-up power too!

Better Resale

When it comes time to move, propane-powered homes often have a higher resale value.

Better for the Environment

Reduce your average carbon emissions output by 2.5 tons - annually.
