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 Propane is very costly and nearly half of the energy is lost while heating.  Consider Oil Heat for the following benefits:

  • Because of the hotter flame temperature, fuel oil is more efficient at generating hot water than natural propane. The average recovery rate (the amount of hot water that can be made in one hour) for an oil-fired hot water heater is 120 gallons per hour. The average recovery rate for propane fired hot water heaters is 40 gallons per hour. Fuel oil can make three times as much hot water at half the cost.

  • Oil creates 140,000 BTU’s of heat per gallon while Propane produces 92,000 of heat BTU’s per gallon.  You will need to burn approximately 50% more propane to receive the same heating equivalent as heating oil.

  • Fuel oil is significantly safer than propane. This is the reason why building codes allow fuel oil to be stored inside the home, whereas propane must be stored outside. Propane is highly flammable and explosive at room temperature. It is also heavier than air and does not dissipate readily in the event of a leak.
  • Oil heat is provided by many companies, all actively engaged in a highly competitive industry. Electric heat is provided by one big utility - no choice and no competition. Which do you think is better for the consumer: competition among suppliers or a utility monopoly? With oil heat, you receive personalized, "I'll-be-right-over" service from City Fuel, who knows you and your heating system.
