But did you know that you can also feel confident in your fuel choice, because heating oil has only gotten better over time? Read on to learn more about the benefits of modern heating oil.
Not your grandma’s heating oil
New technologies in recent years facilitated refinements that improved heating oil in a variety of ways:
- It’s clean. Heating oil has become progressively cleaner and more efficient for North Carolina homeowners over the last few decades. And it keeps getting better. Much of the heating oil being used today has an ultra-low sulfur content.
- It’s safe. Oil cannot explode. It only becomes combustible after being vaporized by an oil burner at temperatures above 140°F. Moreover, in the event of a malfunction, modern safety devices within your unit will shut the furnace or boiler off before carbon monoxide poisoning becomes a risk.
- It’s abundant. Striking increases in crude oil production in the U.S. in recent years have contributed to the trend of manageable heating oil prices. New discovery methods, improved equipment, and “smart” techniques make the process simpler, safer, and more efficient – and thus, more economical.
- It’s efficient. New oil heat systems are incredibly efficient, clocking in with efficiency ratings high as 95%. This translates to more warmth using less fuel, and can mean annual savings of an average of 30%.
