When people weigh the pros and cons of oil vs. gas, they should think about the repairs and maintenance procedures that the heating systems might need in the future. Oil furnaces have a lot of advantages in the short-term and in the long run.

1. Oil furnaces and heating systems often last longer than natural gas furnaces.

It’s estimated that oil furnaces can last for as long as three decades, as long as people keep those furnaces maintained. Natural gas furnaces and heating systems won’t even usually last for fifteen years. Oil furnaces can last more than twice as long.

2. Maintaining oil furnaces is often easier than maintaining natural gas furnaces.

Regular maintenance can make all the difference in the world in terms of whether or not a furnace is going to last and work well in the meantime. Maintaining natural gas furnaces is often harder than maintaining oil furnaces.

As such, people might run into more problems with the natural gas furnaces in the first place, and preventing those issues might be comparatively tricky.

3. Oil furnaces are often simpler to repair than natural gas furnaces.

In addition to the fact that oil furnaces are less likely to experience problems in the first place, when they do malfunction, technicians will usually have an easier time getting them to work properly again.
