Heating oil for energy efficiency

Getting More Efficient All the Time

Heating oil customers already appreciate the response, the service, the freedom of choice, the safety and the superior comfort provided by their local retail operation. But many customers are still not aware of the many improvements that have taken place within the industry that will help you save money now and in the future.

Because of the industry’s commitment to Bioheat, the fuel is cleaner, greener and more economical than ever. The latest heating oil systems are compact, smart and super-efficient and can save you, on average, about 30% on your annual heating costs. There are many different equipment options to fit your budget, and your local heating oil company has expertise in all types and models of equipment.

New heating oil systems have efficiency ratings as high as 95%; this provides homes with more warmth for less fuel.

Many new heating oil boilers use energy-saving controls that greatly reduce fuel usage during mildly cold weather and provide a more even heat with fewer temperature swings.

High-efficiency heating oil furnaces feature variable speed motors that use about 80% less electricity than older motors and provide more consistent airflow and temperatures.

New heating oil systems are much smaller than older ones. The average boilers and furnaces today are compact yet powerful, and similar in size to a three-drawer filing cabinet.

Heating oil packs a wallop of heating energy, providing efficiency and comfort. For every gallon of heating oil used, nearly 140,000 Btu’s of heat are produced. That’s the equivalent of about 70,000 60-watt lightbulbs.
