Heating Oil Conversion: Exploring Propane as a Viable Alternative Energy Source

Heating oil, also known as fuel oil or Number 2 oil, has been a popular choice for homeowners since the early 1900s. As an alternative to coal or wood as a fuel source for boilers and domestic hot water production, heating oil proved to be a reliable, clean and economical choice for millions of consumers, especially in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic where other fuel types were often more difficult to acquire or were more expensive. But, it is not an environmentally conscious fuel choice.

Propane gas has the same remote fuel benefit, coupled with fewer emissions and higher efficiency equipment. This course details economic and environmental reasons why switching from heating oil to propane is a good choice for homeowners, residential builders or remodelers.
