Heating oil evolution: cleaner, greener and more efficient

heating oil history new jerseyLike most forms of energy, heating oil has come a long way since the 1840s, when kerosene was first derived. But, did you know that even further developments in heating oil technology emerged in just the past twenty years? These days, it’s much more eco-friendly and more efficient, saving users lots on their energy costs. Read on to learn more about how heating oil has improved in recent decades, and what that means for you as a business or homeowner.

What makes today’s heating oil superior?

Oil heat is the best heat simply because it is cheaper, safer, cleaner and far more efficient than other heating methods.

Safety is our priority: Oil heat is safe and it gives you one less thing to worry about, it doesn’t explode. Oil poses one of the lowest risks of carbon monoxide poisoning to your family. The Consumer Product Safety Commission found that gas units are associated with 92% of carbon monoxide deaths in homes while oil is less than 10% of that.

Energy-efficient means cost-efficient: Over the years oil heating systems have regularly outperformed other fuels in terms of efficiency, and that means savings for you on your energy bills.

Eco-friendly: Heating oil is now considered a clean energy source. In fact, it is cleaner than ever! Today’s technological advances have led to more energy-efficient forms of heating oil, including low-sulfur blends mixed with biofuels, like soybean, plant, and animal fat products. Heating oil is also nontoxic, contains no carcinogens and is biodegradable. It’s cleaner than natural gas and has fewer emissions, which mean it reduces your carbon footprint.
