Water Heater Review

Tankless Water Heater



The oil company schedules delivery's' automatically to top off the homeowners oil tank. The oil company likes this since they are assured a solid on going customer. Company's base these deliveries on what they call degree days. Their computers calculate your usage and anticipate when you'll need a fill up. This allows them to better schedule their time. This is not an exact science and unless the oil company is on top of it they can cause you to run out of fuel.

PRO: If the oil is delivered timely, you get a fresh replacement of oil delivered to in to your tank. Oil will go bad over time and fresh warm oil is better then old cold oil.

CON: If the company isn't organized and detailed they could miss your fill up and you could run out of fuel. If you do, it'll usually be at on the coldest day of the season and since your behind ... chances are your not the only one. If that's the case plan on being cold until they show or read heating oil secrets and tips to find out a quick and easy way to restart your heating system and make it run until the oil company finally is able to make it to your house.

Full Service Heating Oil PRO + CON




These guys don't just deliver fuel. They have a full time staff of well trained staff that are on call 24-7 to service their customers needs. If something goes wrong with your system the good ones are at your home in 2 hours or less.

PRO : Your dealing with a professionally run service oriented company that has your best interest at heart. They focus on service and the good ones will move heaven and earth for you. More progressive companies use an additive in their fuel that helps your system run more efficiently and reduces the change of system failure. By using these additives, I've seen failures and problem calls reduced by 30% and more.

CON: The service and the quality of fuel that your getting from a full service company increases their costs and in order to make money, they need to bill you more money. The old clich, you get what you pay for in most cases rings true. This doesn't mean COD companies are bad, just different.

NOTE: Ultimately your decision to choose between a full service company and a cod guy is based on your needs. Remember all full service guys aren't created equal either. For a clear description with all the details between the two different companies and what makes a good full service company and what to be concerned about you should read heating oil secrets and tricks. It takes you by the hand and explains all the details that you need to be aware of.

It's like having a brother in law in the business and these days the way the heating business is going, having a broth in law in the business is a very good thing.

                            

LUnderstanding factors that drive the volatility in residential heating oil prices.

Fluctuations: Variations that occur in the price of petroleum distillate products due to incremental, somewhat
predictable, changes in the supply and demand of such products.

More consumers begin using heating oil as a secondary heating source:

Some consumers may use heating oil to augment their existing heat source in times of extreme cold.
Prices of other heating fuels (such as natural gas or kerosene) may increase even more than heating oil
during these periods.

Wholesale buyers and anxious consumers drive the market up:

Resupply may be weeks away. Concerned that supplies will not cover short-term customer demand, wholesale
buyers bid up prices for available product. All the while the regional inventory is being depleted.
Consumers become anxious about their short-term needs and continue buying up the current inventory; driving
prices up sharply until the new supply arrives.

Seasonal demand for heating oil:

Where the consumer lives also plays a significant part in the seasonal demand for heating oil. A homeowner in
the Northeast might use 650-1000 gallons of heating oil during a typical winter, while their counterpart in South
Carolina may use half as much

There is an appreciable amount of oil-heated homes located in New England and the Central Atlantic States.
Approximately 6.3 million homes of the 8.1 million households nationwide that heat with oil are located in the
northeastern part of the United States. That comprises roughly 78 percent of the total U.S. heating oil market.
The seasonal increase in inventories and demand is largely confined to the Northeast. It is not uncommon for
the total receipts for heating oil sales in the Northeast to exceed 80 percent of gross sales in any given year.
