Why install a gas furnace to make National Grid more richer. I had one installed 2 years ago and with all the charges they are now doing i just switched back to oil heat. The city of Utica residents should check into why they can not have propane installed in utica because they have something going on with National Grid.

Does anyone know what it costs to convert oil heating to gas? I don't have to replace the furnace because it is still in good shape. Estimates please.

My furnace is 40 yrs old. Most parts have been replaced at one time or another. Should I replace w/new or just hang in till it goes?

I used to do this stuff and nowadays with a modern furnace you will have to replace the furnace to convert from oil to NG.

If your furnace is in decent shape and your gas bills aren't too outrageous it would take a long time to start getting a payback on a new furnace installation. If your basement is nice and dry (dampness is brutal on furnaces) your furnace is probably in good shape. Another thing to consider with new vs. old is repair costs. If something major goes on a new high efficiency furnace, eg. circuit board, be advised that you WILL be paying big for a repair. DEFINITELY get your furnace checked by a reputable heating company about every 2 years and install a CO detector if you don't already have one. If you do decide to replace your furnace get lots of estimates from reputable companies. You will find a great variation in prices. Definitely don't go with a guy that your neighbors cousin heard about who will install a furnace for 500 bucks. I have seen a lot of really shitty and dangerous installations done by part-time hackers. Any particular ?'s post them and I'll see if I can help. I don't do it myself anymore due to disability.

u helped me alot. didn't know about the circuit boards in new ones. You sound honest.I don't seem to have any problems with this one at the time. Had the thermo coupler replaced 2 yrs ago. That was the latest replacement. I've just had diff ppl tell me that b/c it's 40 yrs old, I should get it replaced.
