Commercial Heating Oil Benefits
The use of oil as the fuel for a commercial heating system is very economical. After taking inflation into account the price of heating oil is actually less than it was in the early 1980s. When heating oil is directly compared to other fuel sources such as natural gas it typically performs at a more economical rate.
The technology for oil heat burners has come a long way in the past few decades, and as a result the efficiency of oil fueled appliances has drastically improved. Some oil heat equipment has efficiency ratings above 90%.
Upgrading your older heating system can reduce oil consumption greatly—sometimes by as much as 30-40 percent depending on the condition of your current hot water heater or oil heating system.
Heat from oil has very little environmental impact. Compared to some other heating solutions such as electric heat oil heating is much cleaner. Additionally, the air pollution or emissions from oil burning appliances is very minimal as the exhaust from oil heat is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and biodegradable.
Heating oil is a safe fuel source. It’s not explosive and will not burn in a liquid state. In order to ignite heating oil, it must reach a temperature of at least 140 degrees, which is the point where it vaporizes. Once vaporized it quickly mixes with oxygen and is used as fuel. As a result of this process heating oil is also one of the safest in terms of carbon monoxide being released into your commercial building. If you have employees working in and around your heating oil tank you can rest assured that they are in a safe working environment.
Heating Oil is just Better for Business
Heating oil is a great bio heat fuel option for all businesses. It helps to maintain a low carbon footprint which will assist your building in obtaining LEED certification and it’s a very efficient way to ensure your building stays warm. Heating oil is a safe alternative to other heat sources and is much more cost effective than electric heating.
