Whew.. I called around today and found the company that provides the heating oil to the new house... I gotta tell ya... It's not cheap! $2.58 a gallon, and our tank is a 240 gallon tank. According to their records this house goes through 60 - 70 gallons a month. So I am thinking I'll start with 100 gallons in our tank and see how long that lasts.. But even that is $258.00! Of course with that kind of cost it'll be waiting until the first part of October, hopefully wen't won't need it before then. lol. If we do, then we'll be in a whole world of hurt. :(
This weekend is supposed to be pretty cold too. 50's for the day and 30's at night. We'll crank up the electric heater if needed for that. Although, what we have is one heater and it's in the bedroom. :) I'll get a few more milkhouse or radiant heaters for the back two bedrooms we aren't using. That will keep them above freezing at least. Have to be careful, the water pipes run through the ceiling here and I don't want them freezing at all!
