As of March 2015, it costs approximately $3027 annually to heat the average 1500-square foot home in Maine with a vented kerosene heater. However, kerosene prices vary by state and fluctuate on a daily basis due to domestic and global factors.
Accurate kerosene prices are typically found on the local energy provider's website. These prices are derived from statewide averages and are based on previous usage in the region. A home heating calculator can help determine more precise estimates when certain variables, such as square footage, vented or non-vented heater and current local kerosene prices, are plugged into the calculator.
