Evenings are starting to cool down here in Rhode Island, and before you know it you’ll be turning on your heating system to take the edge off at home.
More than 8 million US households, including homeowners throughout Rhode Island, choose to heat their home with heating oil, and for some pretty good reasons – especially when compared with natural gas.
Does it sometimes feel like your oil furnace* takes far more time than it should to get your home to the right temperature during the fall and winter?
Reading a heating oil gauge may seem like a pretty basic skill to master – and it is. But it’s also an important skill to have, especially if you’re a will call customer who schedules your own heating oil deliveries.
Heating oil has been used to heat New England homes for nearly a century, and for good reason: all-in-all, it just might be the most cost-effective way to produce the kind of heat we need to keep us safe and cozy through our long Rhode Island winters.
If you have been waffling on committing to buy a new heating oil furnace, it is probably for one of two reasons (or a combination of both):
A new oil-fired furnace can be a great investment for your Rhode Island home – especially if it’s replacing an older unit that may have lost 20 to 30 percent or more of its efficiency over the years.
Running out of heating oil in the middle of a cold Rhode Island winter is something we all want to avoid; to keep this from happening, most of us buy our fuel oil in batches throughout…
Now that summer has officially arrived here in Rhode Island, you’re probably not thinking very much about your heating oil tank or your home heating equipment – and that can cost you, if you’re not careful.
Summer 2019 is here, and with it comes thoughts of finally setting your thermostat for “cool” in your Rhode Island home.
