The average high temperature in January in the Portland area of southern Maine is 31 degrees. The average low temperature is 13 degrees, with a strong possibility of it being even colder.

Lots of homes in southern Maine use kerosene for home heating.
The big advantage kerosene offers is that there is no gelling in frigid temperatures. Gelling is where fuel oil thickens, and it can reduce or maybe even block the flow of heating oil into your home’s heating system. If that happens, your heating system could break down and you’ll need a service call to get that fixed so your heat is back up and running.
Mobile homes and homes built on slab foundations need to store their heating oil outside. For those homeowners, preventing gelling is critical.
Kerosene also offers versatility. It can not only heat your home, it can power stoves for cooking and lanterns for lighting. Both of those are advantageous in a power outage.
