Providing oil heat to Mercer Island homes since 1929
Today’s heating oil is better than ever!
Heating oil is the safest type of heating, efficient, and dependable. You may be surprised to learn that heating oil burns an average of 16 percent more efficiently than gas, so you use less fuel and get more heat.
Heating oil is safe
When heating your Mercer Island home, we know safety is your first concern. Heating oil is the safest heating fuel available because it is nonexplosive. With heating oil systems, carbon monoxide leaks are rare. If oil leaks from your furnace or oil tank, it is messy but never life threatening. Before every delivery, our drivers check for signs that tank might be starting to break down. We inform the homeowner, and watch that tank carefully.
Heating oil is efficient
Newer oil furnaces put out more heat per BTU than gas furnaces. The average life expectancy of an oil furnace is about 15 to 20 years longer than a natural gas furnace. Upgrading to a newer oil furnace will not only increase your efficiency, but will also save you thousands of dollars. Additionally, hot water heaters fueled by oil have a recovery rate that is twice as fast as a gas heater, which adds value to your home, while increasing efficiency.
Bioheat: a revolutionary home heating oil
Bioheat is a renewable, alternative oil fuel made by blending biodiesel with standard petroleum heating oil. Bioheat is locally produced, and cleaner in carbon output than natural gas. Genesee provides three blends of biodegradable, nontoxic Bioheat that can be used directly in your current oil tank with your current oil furnace.
