Is Heating Oil Expensive?

When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, or heat for your energy bill, there are many different options on the market. While some people settle for whatever type of heating system their home came with, others are open to investigating other efficient ways of heating a house.

Wet Heat is Best

Conservation is Key
No matter what source you choose, to get the most out of your home heating, we always suggest weatherproofing your home to prevent drafts from making your home a colder place. Just like with any other heating system, maintenance is also key to affordability and longevity. With proper maintenance, an oil heat appliance can easily last 30 or more years, which is over twice the life expectancy of a natural gas furnace. Finally, remember that conservation is key. Wear warm clothes indoors during the winter and close vents in rooms that are not used. Check the insulation in your home to ensure that it is adequate, especially in areas like the attic.
