Top Benefits Of Oil Heat
According to a recent report from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), oil-based furnaces are some of the cleanest combustion sources on the market today. This is largely due to advancements in fuel processing technology, as well as furnace technology. Besides being a clean fuel, other benefits of heating oil include:
Cost-Effective Heating Fuel
A gallon of heating oil generates about 40% more heat…
than a gallon of natural gas. Specifically, the latter produces 140,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs), whereas the latter delivers about 100,000 BTUs. Put another way, heating oil is a more cost-effective heating fuel when you compare it to natural gas.
At the same time, heating oil is generally less expensive than natural gas and electricity. In fact, over the last few years, the annual heating costs of heating oil are consistently lower than the costs of electricity and natural gas. This is according to data from the Department of Ecology Studies.
Heating oil is biodegradable, contains no cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) and is non-toxic. In other words, it is environmentally inert. Of course, CO is a product of combustion of all heating fuels. However, a heating oil system will give clear indicators when there is an issue. It does this long before it leaks CO into the air. This is different when comparing heating oil vs natural gas systems. With natural gas, unsuspecting homeowners have had to deal with CO poisoning. This is why all homes, regardless of the fuel they use, should install CO detectors.
Heating oil is safer than any other heating fuel.
More specifically, it burns cleanly, meaning it does not easily produce potentially toxic vapors and gases, unpleasant odors, soot or dirt. For this reason, it is particularly ideal for heating homes. What’s more, it does not ignite easily or explode. In fact, in order to ignite heating oil, you would need special equipment to atomize it into a fine spray first, which is what oil-based furnaces do. You could drop a lit match into a tank of heating oil and nothing would happen. This is unlike natural gas which easily explodes near an ignition source.
Modern oil-based furnaces and boilers have an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of 85% or higher. To put another way, they are high-efficiency heaters. Because of this, they consume less fuel compared to mid-efficiency heating systems. More importantly, they burn hotter (up to 400 degrees hotter than mid-efficiency burners). This means that they take a shorter time than mid-efficiency furnaces to deliver hot water or heat a given space. What’s more, a well-maintained heating oil furnace generally lasts nearly twice as long as a well-maintained gas furnace. Specifically, the former lasts about 30 years, whereas the latter lasts about 15 years.
Unlike electricity or natural gas service providers, no. 2 heating oil suppliers generally offer favorable terms and competitive prices due to the intense competition. In fact, you have the option to switch suppliers when your current supplier doesn’t offer prices, financing, or delivery plans that meet your needs. When using heating oil, you have the flexibility to find a supplier that offers attractive packages that may include furnace maintenance, cleaning, and inexpensive oil delivery. This, of course, depends on your heating needs. What’s more, you can choose between a full-service supplier and a discount (cash on delivery) supplier, like PFO Heating & Air Conditioning.
