It's that time again! I've just been informed that there are about 11" of oil left in the tank in the basement. Time to start thinking about refilling the tank.
That was either a miracle tune up or we didn't get nearly as much oil in the tank as they had promised at closing.
I think we turned the furnace on in November and had to refill in the first week of December. At Christmas we were at about 29". They turned the heat up while they were tiling and now we have the 2nd week in March and are at 11" Much better performance, don't'cha think?
There is no way to compare how much better it is because the tune up or how much a difference the new windows make.
We'll be looking forward to getting it WAY down by the time we're done with everything.
Now a question for you. It's March, prices are higher now than in the Summer, but right now the prices are going up by 10¢ or so a week. Should we just fill it half way, like we did last time (because we did know how much it would hold, and fill it up in the Summer when prices are/might be cheaper? Or just go ahead and fill it up now?
So you folks with oil furnaces, based on your experience, what would you do? Just fill up with enough for now? or fill it up all the way?
Looking forward to your responses!
