Choose Environmentally Friendly Home Heating Oil For Your Home or Business

Because of higher standards from state governments and a commitment to constantly seek higher quality fuel, the industry has been transitioning towards ultra-low sulfur heating oil blends and renewable biofuels.

In fact,  Oil & Energy reported in 2004 that a German study found that heating oil is more environmentally friendly than natural gas, in terms of overall emissions. The report said, “In an analysis of global warming potential using a time horizon of 20 years, natural gas heating is notably more environmentally damaging than oil heating”.

Today’s environmentally friendly home heating oil systems are very clean. They do not produce soot, dirt or odor. Plus over the past 20 years the sulfur content has been reduced from over 1% to as low as 0.5% (a decrease of over 93%). As this trend continues, home heating oil is one of the cleanest burning fuel options for home and commercial heating.

Environmentally Friendly Home Heating Oil with Modern Controls

Modernized oil systems incorporate new technologies such as modulating burners. Depending on your heating needs, these burners adjust and use varying flame sizes. For example, when a home or business requires more heat, the system will use larger flames to heat the space quickly. And when heat needs are lower, the system uses smaller flames to heat things evenly. This saves energy in the process.

Some new systems are built with advanced metal alloys that improve tolerance for water variation or micro-processor controls that optimize the cycling process. This gives customers more options to improve comfort while reducing cost and impact on the environment.

To help reduce energy consumption even further, programmable thermostats are designed to automate energy usage. Simply schedule it to decrease the temperature while the house is empty and then increase it again before you return.

The result: save energy and money. Need proof? The U.S. Department of Energy estimates residents could save up to a 10% just from lowering the thermostat 8 hours every day.
