How much fuel will I use?
You have chosen to heat your home with one of the safest fuels ever developed. Heating oil is non-toxic
and non-explosive. Your oil heat system doesn’t “burn” oil like a kerosene lamp– oil must be vaporized
before it will burn. The burner unit in your system acts like a finely tuned carburetor. It turns the fuel into
a vapor for efficient combustion in the sealed chamber.
Automatic delivery is a free service that eliminates the stress and worry of remembering to check your
fuel gauge. Our computer program monitors your fuel needs by using a degree-day system. This system
tracks your fuel consumption and prints a delivery ticket based upon your personal heating record.
A “will call” customer is required to monitor their fuel consumption and call to schedule a delivery when
needed. You should keep your tank at least one-quarter full at all times. Since sludge and solids may
accumulate at the bottom of your tank, allowing your tank to run too low may cause these materials to
clog the pump, screen or nozzle and interrupt the flow of oil to your furnace causing your heater to shut
down and require maintenance. We require that our will call customers provide us with 48-hour notice.
The amount of fuel you use will vary with the weather, the size and construction of your home, and the
temperature setting of the thermostat in your home. The average comfortable temperature in a residential
home is between 65 to 70 degrees. Moderate temperature adjustments in the morning and evening are
acceptable. Avoid constant or dramatic adjustments since this will cause your heater to run more often
and for longer periods of time.
