High Heating Costs Expected This Winter

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Mother Nature might not be as friendly toward Midwestern homeowners’ heating budgets for the 2012-13 winter as she was a year earlier.

One way to avoid the increasing prices of fossil fuels is by heating your home with pellet stoves, mult-fuel stoves or multi-fuel furnaces. Pellet and biomass heat allow you to supplement your current home heating or to heat your home off the grid altogether.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration recently released its Winter Fuels Outlook, which offers year-to-year projections of the costs U.S. consumers will face to heat their homes.

The federal agency predicts that this winter won’t be as mild in many parts of the US as last year’s, resulting in heavier use of home heating systems.

“EIA expects higher average fuel bills this winter in states east of the Rocky Mountains,” the fuels outlook noted. “A return to a near-normal winter is the main driver of higher expenditures.”

In the Midwest, the Energy Information Administration predicts that prices for natural gas and propane will be up slightly compared to last year. Heating oil’s price trend is expected to make a sharper climb from last year than the other fuels.

But when consumption levels are factored in along with raw fuel prices, overall bills for all heating types are expected to move upward from last year’s.

In Northwest Michigan, the cash price for heating oil stood at $4.19 per gallon, up 43 cents from a year ago.

Heating oil is expected to move upward in cost in the months ahead. But like other products that incorporate crude oil as their primary ingredient, marketplace conditions can cause sharp price variations.

Spend Less for Heat with Multi-Fuel Furnaces

Home owners are tired of spending so much on energy.

Have worked in the commercial side of things; why not heat your homes with a multi fuel furnace? Multi-fuel furnaces are a dependable alternative. Available in two distinct models, these furnaces can supplement your current source of heat, while being cost-effective and reliable.

Costs to heat and cool homes takes a larger chunk each year from increasingly tight budgets. There is interest in finding fuel sources and equipment that are environmentally friendly and low-maintenance. The answer, both literally and figuratively, is in the backyard. Multi-fuel furnaces burn any of six renewable, natural fuel sources—wood pellets, distillers grain pellets, corn, wheat, rye or cherry pits.

There are many benefits of saying goodbye to fossil fuel and embracing wood heat. Since residential pellet stoves have become commonplace, more people have found out that heating with wood pellets is clean, safe, less expensive and makes sense.

European countries have used biomass heating and cooling for years, because they have fewer resources and always have had to conserve energy. With the rising prices of oil and the realization that oil won’t be around forever, more and more U.S. communities are beginning to make the change to biomass.

Fuels include wood, corn, grass, manure or other biodegradable fuel sources. Wood pellets are readily available and, for the environmentally conscious, there’s an added bonus. After the pellets burn, only recyclable ash remains because drying the wood reduces the moisture content from 42% to 5%.

Heating with a pellet or multi fuel furnace can cut heating costs in half.

A Cold Winter is Expected – Multi Fuel and Pellet Stoves For Better Heat

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Energy industry analysts consider the home heating season to be Oct. 1 through April 1. Home heating prices vary from fuel to fuel.

The real issue is the likelihood we’re in for a colder winter. Last winter was warmest winter we’ve ever had in many parts of the nation.

Homeowners shouldn’t expect two years in a row of record-breaking warmth. And while it is hard to put much stock in long-term forecasts, a developing, weak El Nino may offer clues to what the coming season holds. If it’s a weak El Nino, we get slightly more snowfall than normal and slightly cooler temperatures. More oil customers are signing up for budget oil plans in anticipation of higher heating bills. Prices for wood pellets are stable, while firewood prices are harder to gauge. The Energy Information Administration reported that propane stocks nationwide are 32% higher than they were at this time last year. Residential heating oil prices, as of August, stood at an average of $3.92 per gallon, about 10 cents higher than at the start of the 2011-12 heating season.

Alternative heat

The relatively high cost of propane and home heating oil has some residents considering supplemental heating like pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves.

With pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves, you can heat your entire home, or you can use pellet stoves to supplement the heat that you have.

Pellet and multi fuel stoves have the same or better heating energy as wood, and they are considerably cheaper than fuel oil or propane.

Pellet Inserts are Perfect for Homes with Existing Fireplaces

Pellet stove inserts are ideal for people who do not have time to fix or renovate their existing fireplace and for homeowners that do not have the time to maximize its use. Essentially, a pellet stove can be placed inside an open fireplace. They allow you to maximize heating efficiency and really benefit from the full potential of your fireplace.

In terms of home heating needs, pellet inserts has many advantages. They are an excellent way to save on energy since, compared to other heating appliances and systems, they significantly lessen the related costs. Also, they significantly increase the efficiency of your old, open fireplace by allowing the fire to burn hotter and sending the hot air out into your home rather than up the chimney.

Pellet inserts keep the heated air inside the room and they add more heat than a fireplace to circulate throughout the entire room. This is why many homeowners have found pellet inserts to be the perfect way to stay warm and save money during the cold months.

But even better, these pellet inserts by St. Croix Stoves are beautifully made with great artistic care and a large glass viewing area. They add a nice finished, decorative look to your living room and provide warmth and coziness to every home.
