If your home uses oil-based heating, the refilling of the reserve tank can be one of the more challenging aspects. Home oil delivery should be simple, efficient, and happen when you need it. Oil-based heating is usually best recommended for places that are difficult to reach, or where natural gas, electric, or other types of heating are unavailable or inadvisable. Modern oil-based heating can heat a home faster than other types of home heating and is generally comparable in cost to electric or natural gas heating systems.
The frequency of home oil delivery will be determined by the size of your storage tank. The size of your tank is dependent on the area in which you live, the number of people living in the home, the square footage of the home, and the site of the home. Knowing this information is essential to plan when to have your heating oil tank replenished. Formulas exist to determine the amount of heating potential compared to the average temperature of your area, but most advise a home oil delivery during the summer months, when home heating oil prices are at their lowest and when demand for heat is least.
