New Jersey winters can be brutally cold sometimes. Fortunately, it’s on the coldest days that oilheat delivers its greatest value.
For starters, 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. You have so much choice about the company that delivers your heating oil and services your equipment. That means you can select a company that best fits your needs and your budget. What’s more, heating oil companies are known for delivering top-notch service and customer support. So, you can feel very confident knowing that you and your family are going to be in good hands.
Besides getting reliable service, you can count on your home staying warm and toasty. The flame inside the heating oil system burns hotter than other types of systems. As a result, homeowners who use heating oil enjoy warm homes with evenly distributed heat—a big comfort during all those cold days and nights of winter.
Advanced heating fuels like ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and Bioheat® fuel are becoming more widespread, ULSHO contains very little sulfur and this helps heating oil systems run more efficiently.
Bioheat fuel is the industry’s official registered name for the fuel that consists of a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil with renewable biofuel that’s made from organic and recycled products. These products can range from soybean oil, used cooking oils, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and even algae.
Bioheat fuel is sourced and produced right here in the United States, supporting local farmers, local industries and local economies. The most refined grade of heating oil available, Bioheat fuel is one of the cleanest burning heating sources for your home or business. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions significantly and no changes to your existing heating oil system are necessary if you want to use Bioheat fuel.
Years ago, an old steel oil tank buried underground often drove people away from living in an oil-heated home. But that obstacle is rapidly becoming a nonissue because many homes today have a modern, aboveground oil tank.
There have been big improvements in heating-oil tanks over the years. One of the most important is double-walled construction with an outside layer of corrosion-proof galvanized steel. This keeps the chance of a costly leak to a minimum. Other innovations include:
To sum up, today’s heating-oil storage tanks provide peace of mind and convenience—in addition to all the other benefits of heating your home with oil!
A heating-oil storage tank also gives the homeowners the ability to safely store an adequate supply of heating oil that’s ready for immediate use whenever a need to heat the home arises. Heating oil is very safe. 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, a heating oil furnace or heating oil boiler poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. And if there is an issue, your system will alert you with a visible warning.
Today’s heating oil–– the more you know, the more comfortable you’ll feel about using it!
