Dear PoP – It’s Starting to Get Cold Questions

“Dear PoP,

I’m ready to sign a lease on a super cute little bungalow in DC, but it’s heated by oil. I’ve never had to deal with this, and have no idea how much it’ll cost. The internet only gives me the price per gallon, and I need more info.

Anyone out there heat their homes with oil? How big is the house and how much oil do you use on average per month? Or how big is your house and how much did you pay per winter to heat your house? Thanks for any help your readers can give!”

We touched on home heating here but does anyone have specific experience using oil? How expensive is it?

And in other home heating questions:

“Would solar water heaters work in DC? Or is there not enough sun light? I can’t believe they haven’t caught on globally.”
