Benefits of Oil Heat
Oil heat is hands down the best fuel for home heating. It typically is more affordable than the alternatives. It provides a hotter flame that delivers better comfort. And when you use Oil heat, you don’t contribute to the destructive methane emissions that occur with utility gas.
Oil heat is more efficient: The cost of heat is also very important. Today's Oil heat appliances offer energy efficiencies 83% to 94%. That means from 83 to 94 cents of every dollar spent on fuel goes to heating the house and the hot water used in it. This outstanding efficiency does wonders for the family budget!
Oil heat means more hot water: Oil-fired hot water heaters make faster, cheaper, hotter hot water than gas or electric.
Oil heat is safe: Nothing beats the safety record of Oil heat. Home heating oil will NOT explode and is not even combustible at room temperature. It has to be heated to 140°F. Before it vaporizes. In addition, an Oil heat system will give off smoke and turn itself off before emitting dangerous carbon monoxide. Having an oil tank allows homeowners to have their own supply safely stored on their property.
Oil heat is clean: The new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emission ratings affirm that oil burners are now one of the cleanest combustion sources in the United States.
Oil heat is comfortable: One of the main things people want in a home—whether new or pre-owned—is comfort. (If you can't be comfortable in your own home, where can you be?) That's why the choice of heating fuel used in a home is so important. Oil heat is a smart choice. It keeps families snug, cozy and comfortable throughout the entire heating season—and supplies plenty of hot water as well.
Oil heat billing is easy to understand: Heating oil usage is measured in gallons, something we are all familiar with. You know what you're getting.
Oil heat is reliable: With Oil heat, homeowners have a secure supply of fuel right on their own property. When additional fuel is needed, it is readily supplied by dependable local oil dealers. With over 36 oil-producing countries, the U.S. is not dependent on any one region—and total proven reserves are about 60% higher than they were in 1985. This makes oil the dependable heating fuel of choice.
Oil heat is versatile: It can be used in forced air, boilers or radiant appliances. Air conditioners, air cleaners and humidification systems can be added, radiant tubing can keep driveways and walkways free of ice and snow. Oil can be stored outdoors above ground or underground—in garages, basements, or utility rooms. Many of today's tanks are even guaranteed against leaking.
Oil heat is environmentally friendly: We are aware of the importance of environmental protection. That's another reason why homeowners like oil heat. Air polluting emissions from oil heat are insignificant, and oil storage tanks offer no threat to the environment.
