Why convert to natural gas?
Natural gas is the nation’s favorite heating fuel. It’s clean-burning, efficient, environmentally friendly—and multipurpose. It’s the fuel of choice for space heating, water heating, clothes dryers, fireplaces, cook stoves and grills.
There’s little or no cost to switch!
In most cases, we’ll bring in the gas line at no charge. Most oil users have equipment that can be converted with very little upfront costs. Natural gas is competitively priced versus oil. On average, Vermonters who have switched to natural gas for heating and hot water saved $400 per year when compared to heating oil, and $1,300 per year compared to propane (LP gas).
We have a staff of 20 highly trained technicians to install and repair natural gas equipment. Call anytime, 24/7, and you’ll get a knowledgeable Vermont Gas employee on the phone. Plus, you’ll never be without emergency service.
You can rest easy. Vermont Gas has rates which are closely monitored by the Vermont Public Service Board, unlike the price of fuel, oil, propane and kerosene.
Clean & convenient
There’s less maintenance. No unpleasant smells. No danger of your tank leaking all over the basement. No worries about running out—because natural gas is delivered to your home via underground pipelines.
Natural gas burns clean. By using natural gas instead of oil or wood, you can personally play a role in reducing air pollution.
High customer satisfaction
In a survey of new customers, Vermont Gas came back with a remarkable “grade”: 100% of new Vermont Gas customers said they were glad they switched. We track customer satisfaction closely—and our strong commitment to customer service delivers consistently high ratings.
