Benefits of Heating Oil

Cleanliness:

Residential heating oil burns extremely cleanly, with so few emissions that heating oil isn't even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act. Furthermore, new formulations like biofuel and ultra-low sulfur diesel make oilheat an even more environmentally friendly choice for heating your home. 

Health and Safety:

Heating oil is non-combustible. In fact, if you drop a lit match into a heating oil tank, its flame will simply go out as if dropped in water. Also, inhalation of fuel oil fumes is not lethal, and in the event of a system malfunction, heating oil systems will give you tell-tale warning signs like smoke, odors or soot.

Dependability:

Contrary to what you might have heard, there is plenty of oil in North America to go around. The U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve has a capacity of 727 million barrels, and the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve stores 1 million barrels alone. Furthermore, in late 2013, the U.S. surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the world's leading petroleum producer.
