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.
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.
