How important is it to have my heating system serviced annually?

A: According to the Environmental Protection Agency, heating equipment that is maintained annually uses 13% less fuel than units that are not. Approximately 55% of American homeowners have their heating equipment serviced. Those that don’t may experience an increase of 10-15% in fuel bills. Maintenance extends the life of your heating equipment by as much as 20-30% which can translate into 5 to 10 years of additional usage for a furnace or boiler. Approximately 75% of all emergency repairs can be avoided with regular maintenance.

Is it true that oil heated homes are cozier than homes heated with natural gas?

A:  YES -Oil heat burns 400 degrees hotter than natural gas, resulting in a cozier house. Oil heat actually heats your home faster.  Since oil heat has a higher burn temperature, it provides a more even temperature in all rooms throughout the house. 

Is it true the world oil supply is in danger?

A: NO- It is a myth that oil supplies are dangerously low. There are over 36 oil-producing countries, the world’s oil reserves will last a long time. The U.S. is the third-largest oil producer in the world with 33 American states producing almost half of our supply.

Is heating oil more expensive than natural gas?

A: There are many aspects of this question:

First, it’s important to know that prices for all home heating options are going up.

Second, heating oil is traded every day, with price changes every day. However when oil goes up in usually comes back down. Unlike the natural gas utilities when they raise prices for natural gas, they almost never go back down again!

Third, Discount-fuel.com keeps heating oil prices as low as possible through good old fashioned competition .We consider ourselves a local Long Island business and understand the value of superior customer service. A public utility just can’t match our dedication.

Finally, consider the long term costs. Oil furnaces last significantly longer than other options, averaging 30 years compared to 15 years for a typical gas furnace. It is a fact that  a gallon of home heating oil produces more heat compared to a comparable amount of natural gas. This means, your home heats up faster and stays warmer longer—which saves you money.
