When going through the house hunting process, there’s a lot of choices that need to be made. From what towns and neighborhoods that you’re interested to the style house you prefer and whether or not you’re interested in taking on projects. One thing home buyers often forget about is the utilities that the house utilizes from electricity and heating to TV and Internet providers.
In New England, the most common heating sources are gas and oil and today, we’re discussing the benefits of heating oil for your home.
Heating Oil is Energy Efficient
Heating oil systems have an average energy efficiency rating of 95%, which has increased by roughly 25% over the last 30 years. By purchasing a home that utilizing heating oil as their energy source, homeowners can see an average savings of 30% on their heating bills compared to other sources.
On cold days, you want your home to heat up quickly once you switch your thermostat on or adjust the temperature. Heating oil is known for heating up your home very quickly and can quickly burn at 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heating Oil Burns Clean
Heating old is now 95% cleaner than it was in the 1970s, is renewable, and dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions. If you have a new heating oil system, you’ll notice that it no longer produces any dirt, soot, or odor.
When heating oil is in a liquid state, it cannot be ignited, making it safe to store in your home. In order to burn inside your oil burner or furnace, it must be vaporized first.
