Winter is fading in Bath, Pennsylvania, for another year, but there is still a heating bill for now. In the Northeast, winters can be especially brutal, and you need the most efficient and abundant heat source available. For most Americans, that means electric, natural gas, or heating oil. Newer heating oil furnaces show AFUE ratings that are every bit as efficient as natural gas furnaces, and they cost less.
Not only will it cost you less to get an oil furnace, it will save you more money in the long run. Oil furnaces can help keep more of your money in your wallet than ever before.
What we’re talking about here are two things: fuel efficiency and heat per BTU. Oil furnaces produce more heat per BTU than both electric and gas furnaces, and while gas furnaces used to create more BTUs per unit of fuel, newer efficient oil furnaces produce nearly the same efficiency results. That means newer oil furnaces are making each gallon of fuel go further.
Inexpensive Fuel Pricing
One of the best things about heating oil is that prices have been dropping steadily in the past few years. Regulations on natural gas harvesting have made the cost fluctuate. Heating oil is also usually 2.5 to 5.5 times cheaper than using electricity to heat, as well. You can save even more if you purchase your heating oil during summer when the supply is plentiful.
Use Less Oil
You can use less oil by taking some simple steps. Turn down your thermostat when you’re not home or when you’re sleeping. Bundle up and grab some extra blankets when it’s not that cold outside. Cover up windows, and seal any cracks or openings so your heat doesn’t escape.
