Benefits of Heating with Oil
Heating oil heats your home quickly, making it very efficient. The flame for home heating oil burns at 300 degrees, heating up your home and hot water heater faster than other alternatives. This means that heating a home with oil saves more money over time and makes for a more comfortable home.
Heating oil has a reputation for being safe. Unlike natural gas or propane, oil is not explosive and does not produce fumes that could be fatal. When there is a problem with heating oil, its obvious telltale signs such as smoke or soot warn you of an issue that needs to be fixed.
Heating oil is economical. Most communities are serviced by several oil companies, creating a competitive market for customers to receive the best prices. Other heating methods are usually controlled by one company with a monopoly on the product, weakening the position of the customer to negotiate fair prices.
Heating oil is green. With advancement in refining technology, oil burns 95% cleaner than it did in the 1970s. The Federal Clean Air Act does not monitor emissions from heating oil because it burns so cleanly.
