The Advantage of Oil Heat

Oil heat offers many advantages over other heating fuels and systems. Some of the reasons it might be to your benefit to heat your home using oil include:

  • It’s cleaner. Today’s oil heating systems are much cleaner than in the past. Oil burner emissions are rated at near zero levels

  • Using a new high-efficiency oil furnace produces a 95% efficiency rate compared to older furnaces

  • Oil heat is safer. It is non-flammable and non-explosive, unlike natural gas.

  • One litre of heating oil produces 37,000 BTUs in a furnace, compared with 35,300 BTUs for natural gas and 3,143 BTUs from 1 kWh of electricity.

  • Performing regular maintenance on your oil appliances and servicing them before the cold weather sets in can save you 5% per year on your heating costs.
