  2. 2. Did You Know That….
  3. 3. 8.1 million American households in the Northeastern United States rely on heating oil to heat their homes. Crude oil is the source of home heating oil as well as other products such as gasoline and diesel fuel. Facts About Heating Oil
  4. 4. Heating Oil Prices are Affected by Crude Oil Prices All these fuels have the same starting point, so refineries must decide what to produce, how much, and when, based on a mix of replenishment signals and consumer demands. The price a refiner pays for crude oil is the number 1 factor that determines the cost of home heating oil to the consumer. Crude oil is a global commodity so refineries must competitively bid in world markets to buy this natural resource. Other factors that could affect crude prices are natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and civil unrests that may develop anywhere in the world.
  5. 5. Breaking Down the Cost of Heating Oil <ul><li>Heating oil prices paid by consumers are determined by the cost of crude oil, the cost to produce, to market and distribute as well as the profits of refiners, wholesalers and dealers. </li></ul><ul><li>Cost Breakdown of 1 Gallon of Heating Oil: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Marketing & Distribution Costs = 46% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Price of Crude Oil = 42% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Refinery Processing = 12% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Refining Decisions Affect Heating Oil Supply Refineries produce as much gasoline as possible to meet the needs of our nation's economy. Heating oil production takes place in the winter months when demand is highest and the summer driving season is over, reducing demand for gasoline. Once produced, the refined heating oil is delivered to oil storage facilities located in each state to ensure that there is enough heating oil to meet demand during the winter months.

  17. 17. Is It Time to Upgrade Your Heating System? How Old is your Heating System? If your boiler is more than 20 years old you should seriously consider upgrading it. Your old heating system may be wasting 100’s of gallons of oil every year thereby wasting precious heat and sending your money up the chimney. A new “oil fired” boiler can offer you up to 90% operating efficiency and provide many years of trouble-free operation. Return On Investment (ROI) on a New Energy Star Compliant Heating System The question that many homeowner’s need to ask is; “If I upgrade my heating system, how long will It take to get a payback or (ROI) return on my investment? Most New York homes were built between 1950 through 1975 when heating oil sold for as low as 25 cents per gallon. Many of those homes still have their original heating systems which are now outdated with burn efficiencies between 56–70 percent. With home heating oil prices reaching record levels of well over $3 per gallon, it’s time to rethink and replace these heating systems with more efficient and environmentally friendly equipment. Installing a new Energy Star compliant boiler will increase burn efficiency up to 90%, producing more heat using much less oil and the savings can offer you an (ROI) or pay-back in only 4-5 years. Are you constantly running out of hot water? You may also want to consider installing an indirect “oil-fired” water heater for an unlimited supply of hot water all year long.
