Expert Oil to Electric Conversion Services From Vancouver Island, CA, Technicians

Do you currently use oil to keep your home at the ideal temperatures? Are you looking for a more cost-effective and eco-friendly way to heat your home? Our technicians are highly qualified to convert oil heating home systems to electric units.

When you’re ready to convert from oil to electric heat, we will uninstall your furnace or boiler, remove your oil tank, and install the new system. Before installing the new heat pump or mini-split, our technicians will test your home to ensure it has a 200-amp electrical service. If your home only has a 100 or 150-amp service, we can perform the necessary electrical upgrades quickly before finishing converting your oil heating home system to electric.

The Benefits of Converting Oil to Electric Heat

There are several advantages to converting your home heating system in your Vancouver Island, CA, home to an electric system. Here are the top benefits you could enjoy from upgrading your heating system:

  • Less Money: Electric heating systems cost less to operate than oil systems and do not require as many maintenance appointments.
  • Greater Resale Value: Prospective buyers are drawn more to electric heating systems than ones that run on oil.
