Bucks County Fuel Cost Comparison


Heating Fuel Comparison
All fuels were not created equal. A therm of gas, a gallon of fuel oil and a gallon of propane all have different amounts of energy and real fuel cost are difficult to compare. Learn more on how to compare fuel cost and to learn about how System 2000 provides a versatile solution and is fuel neutral.

Oil heat provides 53% more energy per gallon than propane, and almost 41% more energy than a therm of natural gas, making oil heat a very good energy value.

Environmental and Economic Fuel Comparison
An average house in the Northeast uses 822 gallons of fuel oil for heat and hot water for one year. The chart below shows the cost of other fuels providing the same 
Compare Heating Oil
- sold in gallons = (140,000 BTU/per gallon)
  • Multiply the propane price per gallon by 1.538 to give the equivalent price per gallon of heating oil.
  • Multiply the natural gas delivered price per therm by 1.41 to give the equivalent price per gallon of heating oil.
  • Multiply the electricity price per KWH by 40.6 to give the equivalent price per gallon of heating oil.

Compare Electric

Sold in Kilowatt hours or KW (3,412 BTU/KW

  • Multiply the electricity price per KWH by 40.6 to give the equivalent price per gallon of heating oil.


40.6 KWH x Peco current rate .17 cents per KW = is like paying $6.90 per Gallon for heating oil

Compare Propane Gas
-sold in gallons (91,000 BTU/per gallon) Propane is all most always more expensive to heat your home with then heating oil, because of the lower BTU per gallon then heating oil and normally sells for more per gallon than heating oil.
It takes 3.07 gallons of Propane to equal the same heat content of 2 gallons of Heating Oil
Fuel isn't the only consideration - efficiency can make the difference in cutting use and greenhouse gas emissions.
