Benefits of Oil Heat
Reliable, affordable and renewable, learn about the countless benefits of oil heat.
Oil Heat is Safe
Unlike gasoline and natural gas, oil is an extremely safe method of home heating. In a liquid state, oil is not combustible and non explosive. In order for oil to burn, it must be heated to above 140 degrees – the temperature at which it begins to vaporize. Natural gas on the other hand can explode even at room temperature should a leak occur…“Go Gas, Go Boom!”
Oil displays visible warning signs should a problem arise. Easily detectable, smoke and soot are byproducts of an oil system malfunctioning. Natural gas, produces deadly carbon monoxide FIRST then soot or smoke second, if at all. Carbon monoxide is deadly and dangerous. Regardless of fuel type, all homes should be equipped with working carbon monoxide detectors and heating systems should be maintained and inspected annually by a licensed heating technician.
