Why You’ll Stay Warm and Safe with Oilheat

oilheat safety new jersey

We all know that New Jersey winters can be brutally cold sometimes. Fortunately, it’s on the coldest days that oilheat delivers its greatest value.

And New Jerseyans who heat with oil have all the support they need to make their life at home safe and warm, thanks to their local heating oil company. These days, that’s more important than ever.

One reason for all these warm feelings is due to oilheat’s high efficiency. The flame in a heating oil system burns hundreds of degrees hotter than in other energy systems. This produces more heat and warmer air or water, which results in more even heat throughout the house.

So when the mercury on the thermometer is barely topping zero and the wind is rattling the windows of your home, all that heat produced by oil will keep your New Jersey home cozy.

4 Quick Facts About Oilheat Efficiency

  1. New oilheat systems boast efficiency ratings as high as 95%, providing more warmth with less fuel needed than ever before.
  2. Many new oil boilers now include energy-saving controls that greatly reduce fuel usage by as much as 10% and provide a more even heat.
  3. High-efficiency oil furnaces now feature variable speed motors that use about 80% less electricity.
  4. Bioheat® a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel fuel, eliminates the source of most equipment problems, which means a reduction in system maintenance and improved system operation.

Safe At Home With Oilheat Too

According to consumer surveys, many homeowners have misconceptions about the safety of heating their home with oil.*

The truth is, heating oil has always been a remarkably safe fuel. Heating oil itself is non-explosive. In fact, if you dropped a lighted match into a bowl of heating oil, the flame would go out just as if you had dropped the match into water.

Additionally, oilheat poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. And if there is an issue, your system will alert you.

So when you use oil to heat your home, you’ll always have the peace of mind of knowing that your family will be safe. Read more about safe heating oil.
