How to Heat Your Home Economically

Heat your home economically

Posted: September 10, 2015

It’s time once again to take our leave of summer and prepare for another New England winter.

Here in Maine, there isn’t one way to heat your home, as many of you know. Heating systems can run on natural gas or propane, heating oil, kerosene, or wood fuels.

While many of us like a crackling fire on a cold winter night, heating with wood or pellets is not the most economical way to heat your home. The truth is that modern oil and propane systems outperform wood or pellet stoves. They are far more efficient in terms of cost, not to mention actual heat energy and output.

With prices for fuels at affordable levels today, investing in wood or pellets may not make financial sense. You could save a lot more with oil or propane than with wood. And a wood stove is 500-1,000 times dirtier than a modern fuel burner.

And with our FREE automatic delivery program, you don’t have to worry about running out of fuel, whether you need oil or propane. You never have to remember to purchase fuel, such as wood or pellets, because we monitor your usage.
