Question DetailsAsked on 2/18/2013

propane forced air heat bill

The house is 890 Sq Ft and was just renovated 9 months ago.

The house has: Brand new 1,000 Gallon tank Duct work Heating system (although I do not know what Brand, I do know that it is high efficiency). And also brand new windows and insulation.

Would anyone know, or have somewhat of an idea of how much my heat bill could be?

OH and I also forgot to say I live 50 miles north of NYC, so the prices are high for everything Ive herd.

Your bill depends on the market price of propane each time you fill up or top off your tank. If your local utility is providing this service, you should contact them for pricing levels and changes.


"Brand new windows and insulation" will not be relevant to the price of propane. They will only affect your level of actual usage as a result of these factors.

Having a new furnace, duct work, windows and doors will all help REDUCE the AMOUNT of propane you USE so the only relavent factor is the price per gallon you'll have to pay. Shop around for propane dealers in your area. Most will have budget plans and some may even offer you a program where you can pre-buy your fuel in the off season to carry you through your next winter thus locking you in at a much lower price than what you'd pay during the cold winter. Go to www.nypropane.com to search for dealers in your area. Reputable dealers will belong to their state association and the associations internally police the members to weed the bad apples out.
