Sure Hope this isnt setting a precedent for the Winter........At 3.40 per gallon for fuel oil we dont get much mileage on a tankful when its 10 below and colder!! At that temperature & Per gallon rate its about 900.00 Per month just to heat this small 3 BR house!!!
Todd : I heat a house that is about 3000 sqaure feet for a maximum of $250 a month during the coldest months of the year.

You cost of fuel works out to be about $24.45 per gigajoule of energy.

Current price of natural gas here is $5.70 per gigajoule and we get a rebate if the cost is above $5.50 per gigajoule.

Have you looked into alternate forms of heating, wood might be a logical choice for you.

Actually your situation works out well for us. We send you the cold air and supply you with the oil to heat your house. Sounds like a win-win situation to me

winds over 100 on the coast down by Trask's place. Gusts over 80 in Astoria.
Flooding and mudslides everywhere in the Northwest. Lot's of folks without power. Road near our house that goes thru the Golden Gardens park down to the sound is closed with a large section of it gone! I-5 closed with water over roadway between Seattle and Portland.

Small world. I was just out in Medford last week for some sheet vinyl. You're the first contractor I've ever come across who lives in MA but works in NH. Its usually the other way around.

I have a lot of contacts out that way, plus I used to live in North Andover it's where I first started out on my own. One big benefit going North every day is that you don't have to fight the traffic. I do work all over though, just finished some in Winchester, Lexington, & Newton. Working In Manchester NH right now, then going to Andover again.

That's it, Jerry. Get it all out of the way before Patti and I get up there. We went to Golden Gardens on our way to your house last summer. I used that road coming up the bluff.

Well Shaughnn ( & Jim )
Yes & Yes LOL
Inother words, we probobly could improve the insulation somewhat but its a 1902 house with basement and a Kitchen addition over a crawl space.
Could we improve consumption....maybe 10 % MAXIMUM

You just dont know what 20 below daytime highs and 40 below night time lows is Like shaughnn......I'm not talking seeing it fo a day or 2, I;m talking living in it 24/7 during a 6 week cold snap!! We'll go through up to 15 gals PER DAY when its like that .

A few years back 1998 maybe? we had a 10 day stretch that had Highs of 25 below and lows of -50 to -55 ( i aint talking wind chill here...wind chills were around -100)
That was the worst ive ever seen it in my lifetime and our furnace NEVER shut off//we went through a full tank in 20 days!!! Back then fuel oil was only 1.15 a gal.
If we see weather like that this year at these prices i'll be taking out a Loan to heat the house!!! No Joke!!!

Anyone heard from Trask? They were pounded pretty hard by the recent storm. Power still out down that way? Busy mucking out the flood water in the basement, shop, showroom? Hope all is ok.
