Frederick Bros Oil & Propane wants to keep you informed on the facts to better help you in making the decision to choose oil in heating your home vs natural gas. We feel it’s important to sort out the fact from fiction.

Let’s get straight to the facts:
  1. Natural gas gives you limited choices when choosing your provider. Fuel and propane companies in Maine provide you with many options in choosing the company that best fits your needs.
  2. Home heating oil and natural gas are both fossil fuels. Today’s technologies are embracing a lower sulfur blend. Heating oil blended with biodiesel which creates a cleaner heating option. Natural gas is methane, which contributes to global warming.
  3. “Efficiency: Modern oil boilers and furnaces are your best value. Our service and installation team can provide you with a free quote and heat loss estimate to help figure out which model boiler/furnace would best fit your home. The average life expectancy of an oil boiler or furnace is 30 years; providing the system is properly maintained. The average life of a natural gas furnace is 10-14 years.
  4. Conversion costs from burning heating oil to natural gas can be very costly. It is important to take in account the cost of a conversion when calculating your energy costs.
