What’s So Great About Oil Heat? How Is It Better Than Gas?

Oil heating fuel is now among the cleanest heating fuels available. It’s is by far the safest type of heating, environmentally friendly, and dependable. You may be surprised to learn that oil heat is more efficient than gas, and that oil heat can be considerably cleaner. Heating oil burns an average of 16% more efficiently than gas, which means you use less fuel and get more heat.

Newer oil furnaces have an average life expectancy of 15-20 years longer than a gas furnace. What’s more, modern oil burners produce significantly less U.S. particulate emissions each year. That means when you heat your home with oil, you are reducing your carbon footprint. If you choose BioHeat heating oil, you reduce it even more.

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.
