Why Heat With Oil?
More than 10 million homes throughout the United States are heated with oil. Here are just a few facts that prove that heating your home with oil is a smart choice:
Oil heat burns 400 degrees hotter than natural gas, resulting in a cozier house that heats up faster. And because oil heat has a higher burn temperature, it provides a more even temperature in all rooms throughout the house.
Oil heat burns so cleanly the EPA doesn’t even regulate its emissions. And it produces far less greenhouse gas than natural gas systems.
The average oil furnace lasts 30 years or more. Compare that to the 15 years you get from a gas furnace.
If the hot water heater is fired with oil, it will heat up twice as fast as it would with natural gas.
Central air conditioning can easily be added to forced air oil furnaces
Home heating oil is non-toxic, non-explosive, biodegradable and contains no carcinogens.
New above ground oil tanks are available in a variety of sizes and can be tucked away in an unused corner of the garage or basement, completely eliminating any concerns about undetected leaks.
Newer oil furnaces, burners, water heaters, stoves and boilers feature cutting edge technology and can have efficiency ratings that exceed 90%.
Unlike public utilities, oil heat companies are not monopolies – they’re locally owned businesses like Alvin Hollis that rely on quality customer service and value to remain competitive.
