We are nearing completion on our house we renovated. The house has an older fuel oil furnace. I personally like fuel oil, I think it pairs well with wood heat which is also in the house. We are having the furnace inspected and are finding a lot of people either dont like or aren't educated on fuel oil. Are costs for fuel oil really that much higher than propane? Our area pretty much has three choices that are economical, fuel oil, wood or propane.
