Michael Ackerman, a Seattle Realtor with Coldwell Banker Bain, blogs about purchasing a home with oil as the primary heat source. Many people think that having oil heat is going to be more work than gas or electric. Not true! You will want to contact a local oil servicing company to set up an account for your home. This company will fill your tank at regular intervals and even put you on a payment program that will even out your payments through the year.
