Your residential heating oil supply is largely dependent on the size of your home tank, the season, and your personal home energy consumption. You should always be aware of the residential fuel oil level in your tank, especially in the winter months. You use much more heating oil in cold temperatures and it is important to never let your tank go below ยผ full before placing your next order from your local fuel oil distributors. Contact a local supplier in case you need an emergency heating oil delivery, luckily many heating oil distributers offer this service.

Oil heating is a form of fuel which is an alternative to electric powered heating. More information about oil heating can be found online on Wikipedia.

Contact a local residential heating oil supplier in your area. Websites for heating oil distributors should offer you a price quote on the current cost of home heating oil. A residential heating oil supplier will deliver directly to your home and usually offer emergency heating oil delivery if your tank is completely empty.

Sure, but it is way more expensive that heating oil.

It has a very similar viscosity to heating oil but is thinner, It does not have the same lubricating quality as heating oil and will burn out the oil pump prematurely, so not recommended.

Kerosene and home heating oil can be mixed in a oil furnace. Kerosene is thinner than heating oil. Mixed together will make the furnace burn cleaner.

Yes oil does freeze but home heating oil does not but the home heating oil starts to gel at 32 degrees F

The oil heating industry sells residential fuel oil to houses that use oil tanks for heating purposes. Fuel oil distributors are contacted when a household's oil supply is low. A fuel oil delivery is then scheduled and a truck will come to refill the tank on the scheduled date. The price of residential heating oil largely fluctuate based on your location, current demand, and speculation. Emergency heating oil delivery can also be scheduled.

what type of "HEATING OIL" #2 #4 #6 (Bunker C )

User Avatar

Residential heating oil is an extremely simple and affordable option to keep your home warm in the winter months. Fuel oil distributors have made it easy for homeowners to schedule round-the-clock residential fuel oil and schedule deliveries and even request an emergency oil delivery if necessary. The company I depend on for heating oil in Long Island offers these services online, 24/7.

The DOE heating capacity MBH oil fired heating boiler refers to the heating capacity of the boiler. The DOE is one of the best boilers in the market.

Probably any other type of heating oil though you will lose capacity due to the different (lower) btu rating of other grades of heating fuel oil.

Yes, heating your home with oil is a cost effective method. It does have its cons. You can weigh the pros and cons by clicking on the following link: http://www.servicemagic.com/article.show.Information-about-Home-Heating-Oil.15536.html

Oil last forever but oil does get dirty. Synthetic oil like conventional oil does get dirty. You can extend your oil changes slightly if you synthetic oil but no more than two or 3000 miles.

Crude oil will probably last 20 years - optimistic scientists say around 25.

Oil is only likely to last a few months in a vehicle. This is less if the vehicle is used a lot.

User Avatar

The price of commercial and residential heating oil fluctuates depending on the current market, oil production, speculation, and other sometimes uncontrollable or unforeseen circumstances like natural disasters. Your best bet is to contact local heating oil distributors. Most delivery services, like the Long Island oil delivery company I use, offer free price quotes before you make a purchase.

An increase in the price of heating oil causes a decrease in the quantity of heating oil demanded.
