But why choose heating oil in the first place? Read on to learn more!
Why is heating oil so popular?
Heating oil is a popular choice for heating homes for several reasons:
- Efficiency: Modern heating oil systems are highly efficient, providing a steady and consistent source of heat. They can reach high levels of energy efficiency, which means you can get more heat from a gallon of heating oil compared to other fuels.
- Reliability: Heating oil is a dependable source of heat. Unlike some alternative heating methods, such as electric heating, it is not affected by power outages. So long as you have a supply of heating oil and a functioning heating system, you can maintain a warm and comfortable home.
- Energy Independence: Many homeowners appreciate the fact that heating oil is produced domestically, reducing dependence on foreign energy sources. This can contribute to energy security and stability.
- Long Burn Times: Heating oil systems typically have longer burn times between refills compared to other fuels, such as propane or natural gas. This means fewer interruptions and less frequent refilling of the oil tank.
- Modern Technology: Advances in heating oil technology have led to cleaner and more efficient systems. Low-sulfur and ultra-low-sulfur heating oils are available, reducing emissions and environmental impact. Many systems also have features like programmable thermostats and zone heating, allowing for better control over heating costs and comfort.
- Cost-Effective: In some regions, heating oil can be a cost-effective choice for heating, especially when purchased at favorable prices. Additionally, price fluctuations can be mitigated through pricing plans and budget options offered by some heating oil suppliers.
- Longevity of Equipment: Well-maintained heating oil equipment can have a long lifespan, potentially lasting for decades with proper care. This can provide a good return on investment for homeowners.

We encourage our heating oil customers to arrange for automatic delivery, which helps ensure that you never run out of fuel. With auto delivery, we track your fuel usage and make a delivery before there is any risk of running out. If you prefer, you can keep track of your fuel usage by checking your oil tank fuel gauge—but please call us before your fuel level drops below one-quarter tank. There is no extra charge for automatic delivery service, and it provides great peace of mind.
