Fuel oil has made great strides over the last decade proving to be an economical, efficient and modern energy source.
Today’s oil heat is a lot cleaner than it was 25 years ago. Oil burner emissions have been reduced to near zero levels and the oil heat industry continues to decrease the amount of sulfur in fuel, leading to lower emissions.
Oil heat is also more efficient than ever. High-efficiency fuel oil appliances operate in the 85% efficiency range while the amount of oil burned by furnaces has decreased by 40% in the last 30 years. Because the fuel burns cleaner, it increases efficiency and prolongs the life of your furnace.
In addition to its environmental and efficiency benefits, oil also heats up water twice as fast as natural gas and up to five times faster than electricity.
