Natural gas is versatile.  Not only can you use it for heating, you can use it for cooking, water heaters, fireplaces and clothes dryers.  Think of the money you stand to save with a gas water heater.  Can you say “vacation money?”  I bet you are thinking that an oil to gas conversion seems like a great idea based on this information.
