With winter upon us in New Haven County and throughout western Connecticut, boilers and furnaces are running regularly in the homes we service. That means our customers are using more heating oil.
At Seymour Oil & Propane, we spend a good amount of time tracking the fuel usage of our Automatic Delivery customers to ensure they never run out of heating oil. This gives us some insight into how much fuel households need each day.
As a homeowner with an oil-fired heating system, you likely understand that heating oil use isn’t uniform. Many factors can affect how quickly you burn through fuel. Here are a few examples of these variables:
Here are some general numbers. If average outdoor temperatures are about 50 degrees, you might only use 2 gallons of heating oil that day. But on a sub-freezing day, when the average temperature is about 20 degrees, your heating oil consumption can jump to 7 gallons daily.
There are some simple ways to lower how much heating oil your home needs in the winter.
Additionally, you can stabilize your heating oil budget and lower your winter bills with our SimplePay Plan. When you enroll in this budget, you no longer pay in full for your fuel on delivery. Instead, we’ll divide your annual heating oil costs into easy, even monthly payments.
Are you tired of tracking your heating oil use? Seymour Oil & Propane offers a free way to ensure you never run out. It’s called Automatic Delivery. Our computerized system tracks how much heating oil you’re consuming based on your customer history and the current weather. Then, we arrange a heating oil delivery before you run low.
