Summer is almost over and colder days are ahead. As heating season bears down upon us, make sure to choose the best heating source for your home. Low-sulfur heating oil offers many safety and efficiency benefits over natural gas.

Heating oil is a safer home heating option than natural gas. Natural gas heating systems are very combustible and must be monitored closely to avoid explosions. They are also a greater risk for carbon monoxide leaks, which will put you and your family’s lives in jeopardy. Carbon monoxide is undetectable without a carbon monoxide detector, which will alert you of a dangerous build-up so you can safely leave your house. Carbon monoxide poisoning is far less likely with heating oil systems, which rarely malfunction, and which give off visible warning sigs such as smoke and soot if they do.

Heating oil systems have also have environmental and efficiency benefits over gas systems. Burner emission rates in heating oil systems are currently approaching near-zero levels. This means cleaner and safer air in our community. Low-sulfur heating oil burns hotter than natural gas, enabling you to use 16% less fuel to heat your home to the same comfort level, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
