- What is the cost of natural gas vs. home heating oil?
Unitil has a great home heating calculator. Simply describe your home, (number of stories, square footage, heat setting, etc.) and determine how much you’ll save with your conversion to natural gas!
Hint: heating with natural gas is like heating with oil……if oil were $2.00/gallon!
- Do we need to go without heat to convert to natural gas?
reVision heat works hard to make a seamless transition without any interruption of service.
- I have natural gas in my neighborhood. How long will it take to convert?
Once a contract is signed, it only takes about 4 – 6 weeks before you’re heating with clean, safe natural gas.
- Are there state or federal rebates available? Yes. There are a variety of rebates available; reVision heat will assist you in completing paperwork to receive these rebates, right down to the stamped envelope. We put the “customer” in customer service!
- There’s a city moratorium preventing digging on my street. What can I do?
First, we need to determine if your current oil boiler is unsafe. If it’s a safety or health hazard, we can assist you in requesting a waiver.
