Switch from fuel oil to natural gas pays off!

A year and a half after moving in, the family converted their heating system and barbecue to natural gas. Switching to blue made perfect sense for the Bouchards, who already drove an electric car. The family’s heating bill has since been nearly cut in half. And thanks to a front-end subsidy, as well as annual savings of between $2,000 and $3,000, the costs of converting were quickly recouped.

Benefits of natural gas according to Guillaume Bouchard

Clean — There is no noticeable smell in the house compared to fuel-oil.
Affordable — Rates are competitive.
Available — It’s as readily available as running water.
Eco-friendly — Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, so it’s a smart choice for the planet and for our kids.
Modern — As a society, we’ve gotten to the point where we can do this. And it’s a nice way to thumb your nose at big oil!
