Determining the Amount of Heating Oil Use
The size of your home and how long the furnace is running are the two biggest factors to the amount of fuel oil you’ll go through during the colder months. A one or two bedroom home uses a 300 gallon tank or less, while larger three or four bedroom homes need a larger 500 gallon tank. The average home in Pennsylvania uses 4.9 gallons of heat daily when temperatures are between 30 – 35 degrees. At that rate, a 275 gallon delivery of oil will last about 56 days. With the cold months stretching from mid-October to early April, you will probably need to fill your tank at least three times.
