Oil Heat Economics
- Electric Heat to Oil can reduce existing “Energy Costs” by 50% or more a year with paybacks of less than 5 years are common.
- Electric Water Heaters are extremely inefficient – about 29%.
- Cost savings for converting an electric water heater to an “Oil Fired” water heater ranges from $101.00
to $467.00 or more a year.
- Oil heat is environmentally friendly. Fuel burning (non-nuclear) power plants for electric resistance heat generation contributes most heavily to the green house effect.
- Environmental Cost To Generate Power:
- Electric Resistance Heat – $17.20 / Million BTU
- Oil Heating – $2.07 / Million BTU
