The Benefits of Oil Heat

Ask any oil heat consumer if they would like to switch to another heating fuel option and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone that’s jumping at the chance to make the change. That’s because today’s oil heat and heating equipment offer so many great benefits to consumers—and to the environment—that it’s a no brainer to stay with this affordable, safe, efficient, clean, and reliable fuel.

Benefits of Home Heating Oil & Oil Heat Equipment

It’s Clean

  • Oil is non-toxic, contains no carcinogens, and is biodegradable.
  • According to the EPA, oil burners are one of the cleanest combustion sources. New oil burners boast near-zero emissions of smoke or combustible discharge.
  • Furnaces are cleaner, too—energy efficiency upgrades and a new high-efficiency heating system can often cut your furnace’s pollution output in half.

It’s Affordable

  • Heating oil prices this winter were the lowest we’ve seen in years, and prices are expected to stay low for the next heating season. Compared to the 2014-2015 heating season, there was on average an $0.89 drop in price per gallon for US residential oil heat consumers during the 2015-2016 season. For a 275 gallon tank, the average household saved nearly $245 per full-tank fill-up compared to the previous heating season!
  • By upgrading your older heating system to a new high-efficiency system, you can often cut your fuel bills in half each year, giving you a potential payback of your system upgrade in under five years…
  • …which also means updating oil equipment can actually SAVE you money in the long run. Who doesn’t love a return on investment?

It’s Efficient

  • Oil burners provide the hottest flames, which means that oil heats your home faster and uses less fuel to do so.
  • Oil puts out more heat per energy units (BTUs) than other fuels.
  • Upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace or boiler can increase your system’s efficiency by at least 28%.

It’s Reliable

  • You can store your oil tank(s) on your own property, where you have control over your fuel supply. Plus, if there’s ever a need for emergency service, your local oil heat provider will often be out ASAP to help solve the problem.
  • As a customer of a local oil dealer, you often have the opportunity to choose which services you need, such as automatic oil deliveries for added peace of mind.
  • 14 million other homes have chosen to heat with oil and continue to enjoy all the benefits!

It’s Safe

  • Oil is a non-explosive fuel and won’t burn unless it’s preheated to 140 degrees, so there is very little chance that it would ever ignite.
  • If your oil heating system malfunctions, it will produce clear warning signs like smoke, odors, or soot.
  • Oil tank storage has no threat to the health of your family or the environment, and tanks are built to last decades. There are also affordable services available to protect your oil tank and proactively prevent it from leaking—check with your local oil heat provider to see if they offer a tank protection program.
  • Many local oil companies provide 24/7 emergency service in the event an issue does arise.

  1. It’s good to know more about heating oil and its benefits. I love the fact that it’s really cheap, especially right now. Plus, if we get an efficient system, like you said, we can save a ton of money this year. I’ll have to look into this some more.

  2. I suppose I should switch to fuel oil and have it delivered to my home since it’s a clean source of energy. Because you said that it’s also affordable, I’m convinced to use it in the next coming months. Maybe I’ll be able to save money as well because it’s efficient so I’ll really consider this.

  3. I like the idea of being able to have oil tanks stored on your own property where you have control over your own supply. My husband really wants to switch to a different fuel source, and has been thinking about oil. I think we could definitely do that, we will just need help getting everything worked out with getting it installed.

  4. It ‘s great that you embellished on oil fuel being a clean source of energy because it doesn’t contain carcinogens. One of my cousins bought a house that uses oil for the furnace, and he wants to replace the heating system. I will let him know that it’s actually a good furnace, and to look for an oil supplier and ask him more about the fuel.

Consider upgrading your heating equipment to save on heating your home. We can provide a no-cost estimate and discuss options to maintain your whole home comfort.

Oil Storage Tanks

May be safely located inside or outside your home and will last for years to come. Oil is non-explosive while in liquid form, non-toxic and biodegradable. Storage tanks should be inspected for leaks; fills and vents should be kept clean and in working order.

The driver should be able to hear a whistle while filling the tank, this is the air pushing out while the oil is going in. Safety is a priority at Carlisle Petroleum our drivers are trained to look for potential problems.

We will not fill tanks that do not produce a whistle while filling if the air cannot escape the tank could build pressure and burst. We will be happy to schedule a technician to repair the problem, our flat rate pricing ensures you know the cost up-front.

We Offer Automatic Delivery

Automated heating oil to ensure your home stays warm all winter. We have decades of experience analyzing data using weather degree days and your usage pattern to provide you with an uninterrupted fuel supply.

With analysis, we can also alert customers to potential problems with efficiency and operation of their heating equipment.

Degree Days Explained

A degree day compares the mean or average of hi and low temperatures for a given day and location. The standard in the US is 65 °, the temp at which no heat or cooling is usually required.

The colder the mean temperature the higher the number of degree days. For example, an outside temperature of 40° F will be 25 heat degree days for the day. At Carlisle Petroleum we analyze this data to ensure auto fuel customers maintain a sufficient supply of heating oil.

Unforeseen factors can affect the analysis such as operation issues with the equipment or a change in how customers adjust their thermostats. Installing a programmable thermostat can keep consumption of heating oil consistent and predictable throughout the heating season.
