Average Oil Heater Prices

With the economy the way it is and the rising cost of fuel, many people are turning to heating alternatives like space heaters. Even if you have a furnace and central heat controlled by a thermostat on the wall, you may also want to make use of an oil space heater. Oil heater prices are quite reasonable and these heating units are easy to use and maintain. One thing you should know about oil space heaters is that the oil inside never needs to be replaced or refilled.

This can reduce heating costs because there is no fuel to purchase. The average cost of oil heaters ranges from $39 to over $100 depending on how large the heater is, the manufacturer, the features offered and where you shop. Of course some types of oil heat such as baseboard oil heat, radiant heat, waste oil heat and oil fired water heaters are going to cost a lot more. However space heaters are cheap enough for everyone and come in many different sizes and models.

Some of the top makers of space heaters filled with oil include Honeywell, DeLonghi, Lakewood and Soleus. These brands can be found for sale online and at stores like Lowe's and Home Depot. Even stores like K-Mart, Wal-Mart and Target carry oil space heaters. These stores can be a source of top brands at great bargains. Once you've chosen the right heater, using it couldn't be easier. The first thing you'll need to do is read the operating instructions.

Once you've read through the manual, you're ready to plug your heater in and turn it on. You will probably hear a popping and crackling sound, which is the sound of the oil being heated. The oil is then circulated throughout the heater fins and released into the area. Some heaters come with cool touch fins, auto shut-off and even auto programming. These features may cost more than the average oil heater prices although the extra money is often worth it. You can find great deals on space heaters if you are a savvy comparison shopper. The Internet can help you easily and quickly compare prices and features of different heaters. You can also learn more about how these oil heaters operate and how they can save you on your energy costs.
