A new, sophisticated heating equipment technology is taking over a lot of homes—fast. The days of expensive heating costs, high energy consumption, and unreliable heating systems will soon be gone because more and more homeowners are upgrading their oil heat systems.
Imagine being safely and comfortably tucked into a home when the cold season arrives, not worrying a bit about the weather, pressure drops or broken or malfunctioning heating systems. With oil heat, home will be what it should be—a shelter and a cozy place where anyone can just sit back and relax.
What is it?
Today’s oil heat technology gives continuous and substantial heat no matter what you set your thermostat to. Most homeowners can attest to the difference that they feel with oil heat compared to other heating systems such as electric, wood, gas, and propane heating systems.
When upgrading your heating system, efficiency is one of the top considerations. An oil heating system has 10-15% more on its minimum efficiency range compared to other heaters. This means that for roughly the same amount of fuel, you can get more heat out of it.
Most homeowners hate the maintenance part of keeping a heating system, especially the cleaning. This innovation creates almost no visible dirt or soot, and there’s no displeasing smell or bad odor. Countless heating systems have failed in this area as most of them emit smoke and cause combustion residue up in the chimney.
Oil heat is nonexplosive and it does not combust in a liquid state. Oil begins to vaporize when it is heated above 140 degrees, making it very difficult to light on fire. In addition to this, it also has little impact on the environment in terms of pollution emission. It is not toxic, is biodegradable, and does not contain any form of cancer-causing substance. It is the safest heating source that is currently available on the market. The supply of fuel oil can also be safely stored in a tank anywhere on your property, which is basically anywhere that is convenient. It can be placed in your garage, basement, or next to your house.
Oil heat also provides a substantially lower risk of carbon monoxide emissions in comparison with gas heat. Carbon monoxide is a deadly, odorless gas. While gas systems provide no outward signs of damage when a malfunction occurs, oil heating systems will begin to smoke when a CO leak occurs, letting you and your family know that something is wrong.
Reliability and Security
Oil heat can release high-temperature air with relatively little fuel. Over 14 million satisfied homeowners and business owners across America are using oil-powered heat and hot water because of the impressive results in energy conservation. This system is an excellent investment for any business or home as it helps reduce heating costs.
