Couple looking at finances - How much does it cost to switch from oil to propane or gas heating?

If you’re considering switching from an oil furnace to a natural gas or propane furnace, you may be wondering about the costs involved. While the cost of switching can vary, you can expect to pay anywhere between $7,500 and $15,000 for the upgrade.  

Switching from Oil: A Breakdown of the Costs  

  • The cost of the new furnace: Propane and natural gas furnaces typically cost between $1,500 to $3,000 for the appliance alone. 
  • Installation costs: The cost of installing a propane furnace can also vary depending on the complexity of the job, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. 
  • Fuel costs: Propane is generally less expensive than oil, but this depends on your location and the price of oil in your area. If you live in an area with natural gas hookups, that will likely be the most economical fuel option.  
  • Additional home upgrades: Older homes may need additional upgrades to accommodate a new heating system. 
  • Removing the oil tank: If you’re switching from an oil furnace, you’ll need to remove the oil tank, which can cost anywhere from $500 to $2,000.
