The Benefits Of Using Oil Heat
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report stating that oil-based furnaces are among the cleanest sources of combustion currently available. This is primarily due to the many innovations that have been made in the technology for fuel processing as well as in furnace technology. In addition to being an incredibly clean fuel, heating oil also provides the following benefits:
It’s possible to generate about 40 percent more heat with a gallon of heating oil than with a gallon of natural gas. Heating oil produces 140,000 BTUs (British Thermal Units), while natural gas produces just 100,000 BTUs. As such, heating oil is far more cost-effective to use as a heating fuel in comparison to natural gas.
Heating oil is also less costly than both electricity and natural gas. Over the past several years, the yearly heating costs of heating oil are consistently lower than natural gas and electricity. This data comes from the Department of Ecology Studies.
Heating oil does not contain any carcinogens. It’s non-toxic and some blends are fully biodegradable. Moreover, it doesn’t produce any toxic vapors or gases. This means that heating oil is environmentally inert. CO is of course, a natural byproduct of combustion for all heating fuels. A heating oil system, however, will issue clear warnings long before a problem exists. This is much different from a natural gas system.
With natural gas heating, homeowners may have to contend with CO poisoning without warning. Therefore, despite the heating fuel type that your home uses, every home should have CO detectors in them.
Heating oil is, by far, the safest heating fuel on the market.
Fuel oil does not explode or ignite easily. In fact, you actually need special equipment for atomizing heating oil into a fine mist before igniting it. This is exactly what oil-based furnaces do. It’s possible to drop a lit match into a heating oil tank without experiencing disastrous results. This is hardly the case with natural gas which will explode when near any ignition source.
Options In High-Efficiency Furnaces
Modern boilers and furnaces that use oil have an AFUE or annual fuel utilization efficiency rating of 85 percent or higher. These are high-efficiency heaters. Due to this fact, they use a lot less fuel. Moreover, they also burn a lot hotter (as much as 400 degrees hotter than the typical, mid-efficiency burner). This allows them to deliver heat and hot water to spaces in a much shorter period of time. Moreover, a heating oil furnace that receives proper maintenance will last almost twice as long as a gas furnace that receives proper maintenance. While the gas furnace might last approximately 15 years, the heating oil furnace can last as long as 30.
Options In Supply
Suppliers of No. 2 heating oil, unlike natural gas and electricity suppliers, offer competitive pricing and favorable service terms due to incredible market competition. You actually have the option of switching to another supplier if your current supplier is incapable of offering the financing, prices and delivery plans that you need. With heating oil, you have sufficient flexibility for finding a supplier that offers appealing packages. Some include furnace cleaning and maintenance. Others focus on cost-effective oil delivery. It all depends on what your needs are. Therefore, you can somewhat customize the service that you receive. More importantly, you can choose between full-service supply companies and cash on delivery, discount suppliers. With Lawes Company, you can get both.
Heating Oil Deliveries
Heating oil is currently one of the most popular fuels in the nation. Oil is environmentally-friendly, safe, and very cost-effective. Moreover, suppliers of heating oil typically offer attractive packages or discounted fuel. These can include delivery plans, financing options, and all necessary, furnace maintenance. Oil-based furnaces are often high-efficiency units as well. This means that they burn hotter and use significantly less fuel than other furnace types.
