Heating oil is now basically the same as dyed diesel fuel. At one time it used to have a much higher sulfur content than diesel but not anymore and you could use heating oil or dyed diesel interchangeably.When you say oil, what are you talking about. I’m from the Midwest and we have lp and natural gas but nobody calls it oil. Are you talking like kerosene?
Did the heat pump work at really low temperatures?Our 2 old Harmans have been our primary heat for the past 10 years. Last year we decided to install a 2 head heat pump system (our summers have been getting warmer here and a/c is now almost a necessity!). Last winter we still burned our basement stove 24/7 but let the heat pumps handle the upper levels, only using our 2nd stove when it got really cold. Operating costs seem to be significantly less with this combined heating system vs all pellet. But of course the heat pump wasn’t cheap!
AbsolutelySince 2015 I burn 24/7 my Harman Accentra 52i pellet stove has been heating my house. I have a small rancher and prior to getting my Harman I had a Woodstove insert, no comparison less work, no mess fooling with wood to keep fire going and the heat output is CONSTANTLY wonderful.
