Tower Energy has helped countless families lower their heating bills while staying reliably warm all winter by converting from heating oil to propane furnaces and boilers. These customers also gain access to fantastic gas-fired home appliances and outdoor living amenities.
Generally, you should consider switching to propane-fired equipment if your oil furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old or has an efficiency of less than 80%. It’s also worth considering a propane conversion if your heating oil tank needs to be replaced. Our energy advisor can review your system and tell you if you’re a good candidate.
The cost savings might seem like reason enough to switch to propane, but there are added benefits too:
Lower carbon footprint — Propane has a low carbon intensity. It emits virtually no particulate matter.
Space savings — You can reclaim space in your home by removing your bulky indoor oil tank. Also, propane furnaces and boilers tend to be smaller than oil products (especially boilers).
Fuel versatility — Propane powers countless home comfort products that can elevate your quality of life:
“Tower Energy talked to us about switching our oil system to propane, and it just made sense to switch. We looked on it as an investment. The conversion was painless. The technicians kept our oil boiler running right up until the propane boiler came on. We were even able to use up the last of our heating oil. We now spend hundreds of dollars less on heating fuel, and we’re no less comfortable. Also, we plan to remodel our kitchen in the future, and my wife said now we can have a propane stove!” — Eric G.
Q: How does the propane conversion work?
Our process is completely worry-free. A Tower Energy energy advisor will walk you through it beforehand. We can keep your oil system running while our team installs your new equipment. We will remove the old heating equipment, oil tank and any remaining fuel.
There are no hidden costs. Our quote includes the new equipment, venting and everything else.
Q: Do I need to replace my ducts, radiators or baseboard heat?
Q: What if there’s still heating oil in my tank?
Depending on how much oil you have, we can often time out your conversion process so that your propane system goes on right as you use the last of your oil. Alternatively, we can pump out any remaining oil and dispose of it safely.
Q: Do I need to buy a propane tank?
No. We recommend leasing a tank from us and letting us handle all the work. You won’t need to spend thousands on a new tank, and you won’t be on the hook for installation, repairs or maintenance.
Q: What can I do to conceal a propane tank?
Our team will find a place on your property where your tank is accessible and inconspicuous. We can also provide tips for safely masking it from view.
