You may know a lot about your current heat source, but what about alternatives? Find out more about natural gas, propane, electric, wood-burning, geothermal and solar energy systems.
How do their heating abilities compare? What are cost differences? How is energy delivered? What apparatus is needed for each, and which system is best suited to handle weather where you live?
Once you understand your options, you’ll give serious thought to using heating oil. Throughout the guide, you’ll become familiar with its efficiency, safety, affordability and practicality.

We also have an online price checking tool so you can get an instant quote on local heating oil. You’ll be equipped with even information to help you decide on your heating source.
