What Is Heating Oil?
Is modern heating oil right for you?
How is modern heating oil different from traditional fuels? Heating oil has evolved and changed a lot over the last few generations, so it makes sense if you are not quite sure what today’s heating oil even actually is, despite the fact that heating oil has proven to be an efficient, reliable heating fuel for homes and businesses in northern NJ for many decades. Read on to learn more about how heating oil can help you enjoy peace of mind and affordable comfort – with the help of Fredericks Fuel!
Heating oil FAQs: What IS heating oil, anyways?
Here are some of the most common heating oil questions we hear. If you have a different question, please reach out and one of our fuel experts will be happy to help you.
- Does heating oil affect the environment? In more recent years, heating oil has been reformulated to be a cleaner-burning fuel. That means it has evolved to become more eco-friendly and energy-efficient, which is good news for both the environment and heating oil consumers – since that makes it cheaper and helps you reduce your carbon footprint.
- What are modern heating oil appliances like? Modern heating oil technology has helped pave the way for more compact and efficient heating oil appliances. Today’s boilers and furnaces are way less bulky, and are about the size of a small three-drawer filing cabinet.
- Is heating oil efficient? Modern heating oil is especially efficient, with efficiency ratings as high as 95%! That means heating oil holds its own against competitor fuels. With heating oil, there’s never a need to cut back on your family’s warmth or comfort just to save a few bucks.
- What makes modern heating oil greener than before? Modern heating oil is more efficient and clean-burning because it is a combination of ultra-low-sulfur heating fuel and biodiesel. This type of fuel is made in America and considered a renewable energy resource, since it’s typically made from fats found in soy, corn and other vegetable oils. It can even incorporate recycled cooking oils from restaurants – and as we all know, there’s plenty more where that came from! In other words, modern heating oil has an abundant, renewable supply, making it affordable and increasingly eco-friendly
