Heating Oil to Propane Conversion Calculator

Thinking of switching to propane? We’ve made it easy for you to compare the annual costs of propane to heating oil. But cost isn’t everything. You should also consider that propane has many more uses than heating, is more environmentally friendly and considered to be “clean fuel” by the U.S. and Canadian governments and the World LP Gas Association. Be sure to check out our full comparison of Heating Oil vs. Propane or get the full details on BTU Per Dollar.

Instructions: if you know the efficiency of your heating system, then substitiute it for the average efficiencies listed in the efficiency row. If you are not sure, then just use the average efficiencies of 85% and 94% that are already in place. Then place your current, local heating oil and propane prices in the proper sections. Next, place your estimated annual heating oil gallons or litres in the proper box. Finally, press “enter” on your keyboard. The result will be the annual fuel cost of heating oil and propane.* The calculator will also tell you how many gallons or litres of propane that you are likely to consume.
