Benefits of Heating Oil
Heating oil, often referred to as fuel oil, is a petroleum-derived product that is used primarily for residential heating. When cold weather strikes, it keeps homes warm and comfortable. This low-viscosity, liquid petroleum product is designed for use in furnaces and boilers to generate heat, providing a cozy environment for your family to thrive in. Safe, efficient, and cost-effective, heating oil has become the choice of heating solution for millions, particularly in the northeastern United States.
Heating oil offers several advantages over other energy sources and fuel types that make it the preferred heating method for many homeowners. Heating oil has exceptional efficiency, meaning it burns hotter and releases more energy than other common fuel sources. Put another way, heating oil systems can heat homes faster and use less fuel in the process. This efficiency not only keeps your home warmer but can lead to substantial cost savings in the long run.
Heating oil systems also typically enjoy excellent durability and longevity. Oil furnaces tend to last longer than gas furnaces, often by a considerable margin. With proper maintenance, an oil furnace can last for 25 years or more, while gas furnaces typically need to be replaced after 15 years. This longer lifespan can make an oil heating system a wise investment.
Modern heating oil is cleaner than ever. It is low-sulfur and bio-based, making it an eco-friendlier choice. When combined with energy-efficient system technologies, heating oil can be part of a green solution for heating your home.
Safety is another key benefit of heating oil. Unlike natural gas, heating oil is non-explosive. It will not ignite in its liquid form, and it must be heated to above 140 degrees Fahrenheit before it can even begin to burn. This makes heating oil a safe option for homes. If a problem does develop in a residential oil heating system, it will typically release visible cues such as smoke or soot. It is otherwise a clean fuel that produces next to no emissions.
At Levco, we make it our mission to provide high-quality, reliable heating oil services in Connecticut. We believe in the many benefits of heating oil and take pride in providing this valuable service to residences throughout our community. If you have questions about heating oil or how it works, we are happy to answer them and review what our company can do for your home.
Why Heating Oil Prices Fluctuate?
Home heating oil prices in Connecticut due to various factors. Primarily, these prices are influenced by the cost of crude oil, which is dictated by global supply and demand. When crude oil prices rise, so too does the price of heating oil. Market influences such as geopolitical events, natural disasters, and changes in production levels by oil-producing countries can significantly impact crude oil prices, consequently affecting heating oil costs.
What Month is Heating Oil The Cheapest?
Seasonal demand also plays a critical role in heating oil pricing. During the colder months, the demand for heating oil increases, which can lead to higher prices. Conversely, in warmer months, when the demand for heating oil is low, prices may decrease. Additionally, regional operating costs, including transportation and refining costs, can influence the price of heating oil.
At Levco, we are known for our competitively priced deliveries and work diligently to provide the most cost-effective solutions for our customers. No matter the season, we make every effort to ensure you get the best products and services at the best possible price.
What Size Heating Oil Tank Does My Home Need?
Choosing the right size for a heating oil tank for your home is essential. The size of the tank plays a significant role in ensuring that you have an adequate supply of heating oil to meet your needs. The size of a heating oil tank can range from small tanks that hold about 138 gallons to large ones that can store up to 2,000 gallons.
The choice of tank size depends on a few factors. The first is your home's size and, consequently, its heating needs. Larger homes or buildings will naturally demand more heating oil, necessitating larger tanks. By contrast, smaller homes with less square footage can comfortably rely on smaller tanks.
Another factor to consider is your lifestyle and usage patterns. If you are frequently at home during the colder months, you might use more heating oil, requiring a larger tank. On the other hand, if you travel often or do not need to use your heating system as frequently, a smaller tank may suffice.
You should also consider how frequently you would prefer to receive heating oil deliveries. If you are okay with regular heating oil deliveries, a smaller tank might be enough. But if you prefer fewer deliveries and storing more oil at once, you might want to consider getting a larger tank. Keep in mind that we work to make our deliveries as efficient and convenient as possible.
Are you building a new home or looking to replace existing tanks? Our experts can help you consider all these factors and determine the right tank size for your home. Our experienced team will assess your home’s heating requirements and usage patterns, providing you with a recommendation that ensures you never run out of heating oil when you need it the most. If a single tank size does not meet your needs, note that it is not uncommon to tie two or more smaller tanks together to achieve a custom solution.
