Advantages of Heating Oil

Even with the volatility affecting fuel prices, there are still a lot of good reasons to choose heating oil. Here are a few of them:

  1. Heating oil is safe: In its liquid form, home heating oil doesn’t ignite. It must be vaporized to burn. That means that heating oil can be stored safely in your South Shore home. It represents a very low risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Additionally, modern oil storage tanks are virtually leakproof.
  2. Heating oil is efficient: Modern oil-fired heating systems can be as much as 95% efficient. That means you’re getting a lot of energy for every dollar you spend on fuel—which matters even more now that fuel prices have increased so sharply.
  3. Heating oil works quickly: Of all the heating fuels, heating oil can get your home warm in the shortest amount of time. That’s because heating oil can generate approximately 125,000 BTUs per gallon. That’s a lot of heat!
  4. Heating oil is getting greener: Heating oil has seen significant improvements over the last few decades. Modern heating oil systems burn nearly 93% cleaner than their predecessors. Modern furnaces and boilers also use roughly 700 fewer gallons of heating oil each year than their predecessors did.
  5. Heating oil promotes longevity: If you use heating oil, you’ll get great longevity from your boiler or furnace. With proper maintenance, your oil-fired heating system could last 30 years (or even longer).
