Is it time to convert your home heating system from oil to a more affordable, reliable and healthier gas?
Natural gas home heating is much cheaper than oil. Not only is it cheaper, but it is clean, safe, efficient and a more dependable energy source because it is produced in the United States.
To begin the conversion process, contact PSE&G and ask them to recommend one of their reputable installers if you do not already have one.
The contractor can find out if there’s natural gas within 100 feet of your home so that you do not have to pay a connection charge.
Once this is determined, the contractor will remove the old boiler and oil tank if it is located inside your home. If your tank is located underground, it can be abandoned and will no longer be used to store fuel. In place of the old heating system, a gas boiler and a separate hot water heater will be installed. The last and final step would be a safety inspection of the new equipment. This process can take some time, so make sure that you have enough of your current fuel source.
After that, you can enjoy a more affordable, safer, healthier and efficient way of heating your home.
Don’t forget to contact your insurance agent and advise them of your heating system updates.

Do you have a child heading off to college this upcoming school semester?
If you do, now is the time to look into a renter’s policy to ensure the safety of their personal belongings.
Research shows that 60% of renters do not carry renters insurance. Many consumers think that they can’t afford it, or it’s not important.
The truth is renters insurance is one of the most affordable and most important policies to have when becoming a renter. The average cost of a renter’s policy is about $15 a month! That makes it easy and affordable for you and your hard working college student!
As a renter, you need coverage for your furniture and other personal belongings such as clothes, computer equipment, sports gear, art, jewelry and everything else you own.
Think about how much it would cost you to replace everything you own.
A Renters policy protects you if your covered property is lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed regardless of where it is when the loss occurs, such as while you are moving it or even in another’s home.

Going on vacation often means indulging here and there on purchases. When you travel, you may want to be sure you are spending your hard earned money in the smartest ways.
Here are some suggestions on how to make your next vacation memorable and affordable!
Be flexible – Travelers who are flexible in their departure dates and times can usually find great deals and rates because they have the ability to shop price instead of date.
Pack light – Many airlines now charge extra for baggage fees, especially suitcases. Pack only the necessities.
Use coupons – Coupons aren’t only for getting cents off your brand tissue at the supermarket. Coupon and discount codes are available for just about any purchase – even vacations. Check all travel websites to see if there are any deals and specials going on when booking your trip.
Plan meals – Look into economical restaurants before departing. Know where you’ll be eating and when.
Rent small – If you are renting a car, choose the smallest model that will fit your needs. In addition, there is no need to pay for a large room that you don’t plan to spend much time in.
Consider public transportation – Investigate public transportation options near your destination. Such options may not be as convenient as taxis, but they may be more economical.
Make your next vacation unforgettable!
