Advantages of Heating Oil for Your Chapel Hill Home
- Your heating oil appliance is likely to last twice as long as any natural gas appliance on average, so instead of replacing every 11-14 years, you won’t have to worry about a replacement for 30 years.
- You are less likely to have supply or service issues with home heating oil as opposed to fuels like natural gas as an oil tank stores your own independent supply safely instead of pulling from a pipeline.
- Heating oil is considered a sustainable fuel as supplies are abundant. Currently, in the US, petroleum and oil reserves remain higher than ever. You have more control over your home heating options as you choose your own service and cater to your home’s specific needs.
- Home heating oil is a clean fuel and produces almost zero emissions while creating very little soot. Natural gas, on the other hand, contributes to the total global methane emissions and therefore contributes to global warming.
- Kerosene is a widely used heating source that comes from the refining of crude oils. This heating option adds a level of cost efficiency and safety. When in it’s paraffin form, it produces less fumes and is known to be less harmful than other types of fuel. Kerosene puts less strain on the environment than burning coal and wood.
- Within the spectrum of fuels that heat your home, the hottest flame is created by heating oil. Of the three different grades of heating oil available: Fuel #2, #4, and, #6, #2 is the cleaner and more refined.
