Now that winter has just passed, it is the right time to consider possible reforms in our heating system. The question that is most frequently asked to achieve savings in heating is What energy source is cheapest for heating our home?
In this previous post, we detailed the most common sources, natural gas, propane, diesel, resistance electricity, and heat pump. We also solved a particular example to quantify the savings with each.
However, taking advantage of the fact that you will have the recent winter bills on hand, and trying to make it simpler and more useful, I present the new heating cost calculator to you. This online application will allow you to estimate your heating costs based on the consumption of your actual installation, if you were to replace the energy source used.
The calculator is available at this link, where you will also find the instructions for its use.
