What You Should Know About Heating Oil Deliveries, West Haven, Connecticut

If you have recently installed or purchased a home that has an oil furnace, you may have questions about buying fuel.

Your Guide to Heating Oil Delivery

What are the benefits of heating oil?

Using heating oil is an efficient and affordable way to heat your home. It burns at a temperature that is 400 degrees hotter than that of natural gas, so it can heat up your house or your water heater far quicker.

How does automatic delivery work?

heating oil deliveryA heating oil delivery service will have a temperature monitor that reads temperatures 24 hours a day. Using this information, they can calculate how much oil you're burning and can estimate when you'll need a refill. They will then dispatch a truck to deliver your oil, ensuring that you never run out. 

Can you order manually too?

If you are more comfortable ordering heating oil manually, that is generally an option. Keep in mind that you will need to monitor your usage and upcoming weather patterns to ensure you have the oil you need to stay warm.

How much oil will you burn a year?

The amount you burn will depend on your furnace model, how warm you keep your home, how cold it is outside, and how careful you are to lower the thermostat when you’re not using it. The average furnace burns between 0.8 and 1.7 gallons an hour while operating. However, newer, more efficient furnaces may burn considerably less than that.
