Oilheat is efficient Thanks to major advancements being made in Oilheat burner technology, some Oilheat systems now boast efficiency ratings of over 95%! Modern Oilheat equipment actually burns LESS fuel. The average annual fuel consumption in 1973 was 1,294 gallons – today it’s only 833 gallons – that’s 35% less fuel.

Oilheat is dependable There will always be a plentiful supply, even during the coldest winter months. In fact, the United States has a Strategic Petroleum Reserve with a capacity of 720 million barrels — the world’s largest emergency oil stockpile — in addition to a two-million-barrel heating oil reserve.

Even carbon monoxide is much more prevalent with gas burning equipment than oil fired equipment.

Oil heat is Clean Home heating oil is a clear, rosy-red liquid that is non-toxic, biodegradable and has no carcinogens. Oil heat burns at a level of overall cleanliness approaching 99.9% and unlike gas carries no risk of explosion. In fact, oil heat emissions have such low output they aren’t even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act.
Because of its high efficiency and cleanliness, oil heat systems have an amazingly small impact on the environment. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency says that modern oil burners are one of the cleanest combustion sources available. They release near zero levels of smoke and combustion discharge and produce less greenhouse gas than natural gas systems. Home heating oil is also non-toxic and biodegradable. It all means that oil heat remains a responsible environmental choice for heating your home.
