The expert team at Atlantic Fuels is here to show you how to take full advantage of the versatility of home heating oil. Here’s a look at the benefits of home heating oil:
It’s clean. Cleaner, greener and more economical than ever, the latest systems for oil heat can save you as much as 30% on your annual heating costs. (Savings can soar to near 50% when outdated boilers are replaced with new, high-efficiency oil boilers.)
It’s abundant. The role of the United States is shifting from one of an importer of heating oil, to one of an exporter, primarily due to huge increases in domestic crude oil production. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy says this could be the case within the next 10 years, and it’s already the case that most of the heating oil used in the United States is refined domestically.
It’s safe. Contrary to what many believe, it’s important for us to note that oil heat does not—and cannot—explode. On that note, it’s not even a fire hazard. That’s right: Oil heat cannot burn in its liquid state. In fact, combustion cannot happen until the heating oil temperature surpasses 140°F, at which point it vaporizes. Finally, heating oil poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, and in the unlikely event that an oil burner malfunctions (likely a result of negligence in maintenance), the unit will, in most cases, shut the furnace or boiler off.
It’s efficient. Oil heat systems are smart, offering space and operating efficiency ratings as high as 95%. Today’s average boilers and furnaces are comparable in size to three-drawer filing cabinets. The motors for high-efficiency oil furnaces use about 80% less electricity than older motors. They also offer a higher level of consistency in airflow and temperatures. Oil maximizes heating energy, providing efficiency and comfort. For every gallon of oil burned, nearly 140,000 BTUs of heat are produced. That’s the equivalent of about 70,000 60-watt lightbulbs.
