South Carolina may be known for our hot summers, but history has shown us we’re not immune to cold winters sometimes.
Fortunately, it’s during those cold winters that oilheat really delivers its greatest value.
For starters, the flame in a heating oil system burns hundreds of degrees hotter than in other energy systems. This produces more heat and warmer air or water, which results in more even heat throughout the house.
So when winter temperatures are falling fast, all that heat generated by oil will keep your South Carolina affordably warm and cozy.
Heating oil has always been a remarkably safe fuel. For starters, heating oil itself is non-explosive. In fact, if you dropped a lighted match into a bowl of heating oil, the flame would go out just as if you had dropped the match into water.
Additionally, oilheat poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. And if there is an issue, your system will alert you.
So when you use oil to heat your home, you’ll always have the peace of mind of knowing that your family will be safe. Read more about safe heating oil.
Homeowners in the Palmetto State who take advantage of the latest oilheat technology increase their odds of having the warmest, most comfortable home around.
Technology has brought great improvements in efficiency that has reduced annual fuel consumption by as much as 40%. This has saved oilheat consumers a lot of money on fuel. And because new systems burn clean and don’t need as much fuel, they do not pose a hazard to the environment.
Additionally, sulfur levels have been reduced dramatically and home heating oil is now considered an ultra-low sulfur fuel. This improves heating system efficiency and cleanliness and reduces emissions. This reformulated fuel also eliminates the source of most equipment breakdowns. The advent of ultra-low sulfur heating oil has also paved the way for the next generation of compact, super-efficient boilers and furnaces.
Additionally, Bioheat®–a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel fuel–integrates seamlessly with all heating oil systems. No changes to your heating equipment are necessary to enjoy this clean, powerful fuel.
