How Long Will Your Tank of Bioheat® Home Heating Oil Last in New York?

Your top question about heating with Bioheat® fuel probably has to do with how long a full tank will last. Unfortunately, there’s no definitive answer to this inquiry, but there are a few factors that can affect how quickly or slowly you use a tank of heating oil. These factors include:

Your Home Heating Preference:

A good rule of thumb to remember is that the lower your thermostat is set, the less heating oil you’ll use. The temperature you desire directly determines how hard your heating system has to work, and how much Bioheat® fuel it consumes.

The Number of People in Your Home:

If you have family or friends visiting your home, you’ll burn through more Bioheat® fuel than you would if the regular number of residents were using your oil-burning appliances.

The Temperature Outside:

If it’s cold outside, your heating system has to work longer and harder to keep your home warm. This means you’ll be burning more Bioheat® fuel.

The Size of Your Tank:

If your tank is smaller than average, you’ll notice that you need more Bioheat® fuel refills compared to the amount a large tank might require.
