A guide to converting your oil-fired heating system to an electric or gas system

Are you thinking about getting rid of your oil-fired heating system? At Confort Expert, we’re pros in all things regarding heating and cooling. In this article, we tell you what’s involved in converting your oil heating system to an electric or gas one.

Homeowners often replace their oil heating system when it starts getting old or when they wish to change over to a greener, more energy-efficient system. Whatever your reason for making the switch, simply call in a HVAC technician to take care of the task. The technician will be able to take out the old components and oil tank and dispose of them in an eco-friendly manner.

Following this, the technician will install your new heating system, as per the solution provided by our sales representative.

Conversion to an electric heating system
If you opt for an electric heating system, you’ll need to have a 200-amp electrical panel. As an oil heating system requires less electricity, it’s possible that your panel is only 100 or 150 amps. If this is the case, Confort Expert can take care of your electrical panel replacement. Your panel’s amperage is printed near or on the main circuit.

When you choose an electric heating system, you also have to decide which mode of heating you want: baseboard heaters, a heat pump or forced-air heating. Key factors to keep in mind include maintenance demands, installation costs and the specific features of your home.

Conversion to a gas heating system
If you want to change your current heating system to one that runs on natural gas, you’ll first need to check that there are natural gas pipelines in your area and that they can reach your home. Consult your municipality for this information.
