Natural Gas Heating vs. Oil Heating

If you are thinking about installing a new heating system and would like the help of our East Petersburg heating technicians, we are at your service. Each type of heating system offers a number of different pros and cons, such as cost savings with natural gas in the winter.

There are a few pros and cons to consider for each type of heating system:

  • Oil heating- Heating systems fueled by oil often costs less to purchase initially than gas but can be more expensive to run. They also require more maintenance due to soot and dirt buildup so they must be cleaned regularly.
  • Gas heating- Natural gas furnaces are more efficient and require less fuel to run than oil but you must be able to have natural gas lines in your area. They also require little maintenance and are quieter when they run.

  • Not only did Mark do a great job, he worked things out with me, with the best options for me, and saved me money on the parts and work he was going to do, and by joining the service plan, gave me discounts on everything he was going to need to perform.

    “I had another good experience with Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical. I had Mark come out to my house today, and he was here when they said he would be here. He discussed my options for my Central Air Heat Pump, that was not working, and explained everything to me in a way that I was able to understand. He was very knowledgeable about the work he was about to do. After going over the options, I picked the one that best suited me for the time being, and there was no pressure to pick the higher price options, and was able to get my AC working good before he left. He was very polite and did an excellent job, and explained everything up front. Not only did he do a great job, he worked things out with me, with the best options for me, and saved me money on the parts and work he was going to do, and by joining the service plan, gave me discounts on everything he was going to need to perform. This is the second time I used Lancaster Plumbing,etc, and I am very happy with the outcome of both visits. Years ago, I had used other companies, and I found out that my best interests were not always on their mind, by comparing them with other estimates, but I found Lancaster Plumbing, and Mark, did the best he could do and did the job correct, and with a fair price. I won't hesitate to call Lancaster Plumbing in the future for my Heating and AC needs. I suffer from severe Migraines all my life and with some of the meds I use, I just can't tolerate the heat and humidity, so it was imperative to me to have my AC running at all times, and these past 3 days were complete miserable to me,because I had no AC, but thanks to Mark, he got me back on track and having my AC working again...and I am very thankful for the work he performed.”

  • All in all I give a big kudos to Mark and God Bless him for his wonderful, kindhearted and caring service, LPH should be so honored to have an employee as Mark. Thank you again and God Bless!!!

    “Thank you Mark for coming out this cold Saturday morning; your kindness and caring work was a blessing this morning. I awoke at 1am this morning to a freezing home; called my son, Alan ( who is also a customer); he stopped by on his way to work and stated he did not know what to do. He referred me to LPH; in turn I called and spoke to a very pleasant lady and explained that my oil furnace was not coming on; she told me she would contact an on call service man. Within the hour Mark called me, we spoke and he was here within 1 1.5 hours. Mark fixed my problem with the furnace in a short amount of time. The wonderful experience with Mark, i.e.; explaining what was wrong, what he was doing to fix the problem, putting up with my questions, so kindly; sat down and explained LPH benefits and maintenance plan, etc. All in all I give a big kudos to Mark and God Bless him for his wonderful, kindhearted and caring service, LPH should be so honored to have an employee as Mark. Thank you again and God Bless!!!”

  • Great work by Jay & great follow up a few days later to fix a tiny problem with the water heater. Highly recommend Lancaster Plumbing & Heating & especially Jay!!!

    “Jay from Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical came out to our townhouse when we were having problems with our sump pump, checked it out & told us what the problem was. The motor wasn't working so we made arrangements to have it replaced. At the same time, we discussed with Jay about getting our water heater replaced & a new toilet installed in our powder room. He was great....he told us our options for financing everything & 2 days later we had the sump pump, water heater & a new toilet installed. Great work by Jay & great follow up a few days later to fix a tiny problem with the water heater. Highly recommend Lancaster Plumbing & Heating & especially Jay!!!”

  • Kevin worked quickly, effectively, provided explanations and answered all my questions in a friendly and professional manner. You're first on my list to call for plumbing help!

    “Thanks Kevin Jones for coming to the rescue and fixing the aftermath of my son and his friend making a game out of throwing stones down our sewer vent pipe! Kevin worked quickly, effectively, provided explanations and answered all my questions in a friendly and professional manner. The first company wanted to call in a vacuum truck without even looking at the problem! Kevin was able to fix the problem with just a sewer snake and avoid a more costly repair. Thanks Kevin and Lancaster Plumbing & Heating! You're first on my list to call for plumbing help!”

  • LPH, and Kevin, are always a professional pleasure to deal with.

    “Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and always fair. I know that when Kevin is dispatched to my home, the problem will not only be fixed to the fullest extent possible at the moment, but that he will also make sure I understand why it happened or what may happen in the future. LPH, and Kevin, are always a professional pleasure to deal with. This is especially important when emergent circumstances have already increased my personal stress level. Thank you!”
