Heating Oils / About

Today's oilheat is one of the safest, most efficient ways to heat a home or business. Fuel Oil is a very stable, combustible, non-explosive product, which addresses some of the safety concerns that surround other fuels. New heating oil systems and technology make it one of the best ways to ensure warmth, reliability, and comfort.


Efficiency: Modern Oilheat systems now boast efficiency ratings of 95 percent, providing more warmth with less fuel than ever before. Another component of its efficiency is the high BTU content found in a gallon of oil, versus an equal measure of natural gas, propane, or electricity.


Clean and Safe: Today's Oilheat is 95% cleaner than it was in 1970. Modern Oilheat systems create absolutely no soot, dirt, or odors in the home. Oilheat is as environmentally friendly as gas and non-explosive. In fact, unlike other heating sources which can burst into flames, Oilheat cannot burn in a liquid state.


Abundant: There's an abundant - and safe - supply of Oilheat to keep all of America warm and comfortable for many years to come. In the United States today, 6.4 million households use Oilheat.
