    How do you know your unit is operating at .02 in w.c.? Have you measured it? Change your filters as suggested and see if it drops the temperature rise to the rated temp. If you have all your...

    I'd say that oil and LP would be equal at your price per gallon and oil at about 3.75.

    I've always heated with oil here on LI. There is nat gas, but for some reason I never had it in any of the...

    I may be paying a higher rate since I only use it to cook and dry and the wife used the cloths line a lot this summer. Think they delivered about 8 gallons.

    OK, if you have a higher temperature rise temp than the rated temp rise, and you are under-firing the unit, you have problem with airflow. I looked at the spec-sheet for your furnace and it states...

    Yes, the bill for a delivery last week was 6 dollars per gallon. Oil is cheaper than gas even if lp is 3 per gallon and if oil is 4 per gallon. Just have to do the math.

    WOW! Never thought of the cost of my tools that way! My 4 in 1 screwdriver is most likely in the $200.00 range by now...One way to look at it is that we are keeping the economy going.

    Around 136,000 btu/gal from oil, 92,000btu/gal from LP. About $3.50 per gallon for oil. Think LP is more expensive. Paid around $6.00 per gallon last week, but only for cooking and a cloths dryer.

    The only thing that gives you the right to buy refrigerant is the EPA card. Doesn't really matter if you work for someone, are self-employed or a home owner.

    Can't really work in the field until you have your EPA certification. You can work on the electrical side but can not touch the refrigerant side of the equipment.
