I have a gas burning furnace. I am thinking of changing to oil. I feel as if the utility company is charging me too much for the gas. If I get a big enough tank, I can fill it once of twice and be set for the whole winter season. I might be wrong but I think that oil heats better and you get more heat from oil than gas. Is it kind of crazy to want to switch to oil given the 100 dollar a barrel prices right now? I just got a $1000 gas bill and that is after insulating all the windows. My g/f likes the house hot and she is pregnant. I gotta make her happy and keep her happy and warm. I think that the investment for the installation of an oil buring boiler and oil tank will take a few years to pay off, but it will. Am I wrong to wanna switch to oil now?
