At City Fuel, we understand that one of the most important decisions new homeowners must make is how to heat and protect your household.  Factors you should consider are cost, safety, availability, and comfort. Consider using Oil Heat for the before making any quick decisions that may actually cost you more money in the long-run.

Heating with electricity is very costly, and nearly half of the energy is lost in transmission from the power plant, through the power lines, to your home.  Consider Oil Heat for the following benefits:

  • The most common form of electric heating system is called a heat pump.  Heating provided by heat pump is not efficient at low temperatures and requires a back-up resistance heater in cold weather which is very inefficient and costly.  At the same time, the average temperature of air coming out of a heat pump is 98 degrees which does not create enough heat to keep you comfortable on a cold day. The average oil heat air temperature is 140 degrees, which guarantees warmth even on the coldest days. Click here to learn more about new highly efficient Oil Heat systems

  • The hot water recovery rate (the amount of hot water that can be made in one hour) of an oil-fired hot water heater is three times faster than that of an electric hot water heater.  For families, heating with electricity means long wait times between showers and washes, and high electric bills.
