How Long Will Heating Oil Last in My Tank This Winter?

The winter winds are whipping outside, which means that your home (and its residents) are probably feeling the chill! If you use heating oil to keep your home comfortable, it can be hard to find the perfect amount of oil to order every winter. After all, with changing temperatures and entertaining at holiday parties, things are unpredictable. How long will fuel oil last at your house this winter, and when should you place your next order with Husky Heating Oil?

How Long Will Heating Oil Last This Winter?

There is no precise answer to this question, as it will vary wildly depending on the size of your fuel oil tank, the size of your home, the temperatures outside, the energy efficiency of your home and how warm you keep the temperature. Freezing temperatures outside or fluctuating temperatures can lead to using more  oil than you typically would. It’s always better to be on the cautious side and order more heating oil during periods of intense cold or when there is a snowstorm coming.
