Are you thinking of making the move to home heating oil? Today’s oil furnace is much more efficient than it used to be, and oil heat is a convenient way to keep your home warm and toasty throughout our Canadian winters. If you’re thinking of converting to oil heat, here’s everything you need to know to make the decision that’s right for your family.
Home Heating Oil Is Convenient
This type of oil is easily delivered to your home by Bird Fuels, your trusted oil company. Depending upon how much oil you purchase each time, you may only need to have three or four deliveries all winter. Oil is delivered in bulk, and our technician pumps the oil from the truck to your tank. You don’t have to be home to receive an oil delivery, and there’s no need to go outside into the cold when the truck arrives. We at Bird Fuels will take care of delivering your fuel.
It’s Better to Order Bigger Deliveries
The more oil you have delivered at one time, the fewer deliveries you’ll need throughout the winter. As an added perk, you’ll have less worry about your heating oil running out when you need it the most.
Order Your Home Heating Oil in the Off-Season to Save Money
If you order before the weather turns cool, you’ll usually save money on heating oil. Prices are usually lowest during the hottest parts of summer. But, as the wind begins to pick up and the temperatures drop, the cost of heating oil tends to rise. At Bird Fuels, we strive to keep costs low, so you’ll always get the best price we can offer.
Maintenance Is Required When Using Oil Heat
Maintenance is an important factor to keep in mind when using oil heat. Your tank must be well maintained and in good shape. A residential oil tank should be replaced between the 15- and 25-year mark, depending upon its condition. Your furnace should also be inspected annually to ensure that it’s working safely and not venting harmful fumes inside the home. If your furnace begins acting up, call Bird Fuels as soon as possible to have it serviced. Problems that aren’t addressed right away often lead to more expensive repairs.
Heating Oil Isn’t Your Only Option
