Does Switching Fuels Make Sense?

Consider How New Oilheat Technology Can Help You Continue to Save with Oilheat

Many people mistakenly believe they’ll get a big payout if they switch to another heating fuel. But the mere cost to convert—typically thousands of dollars— could easily break the bank.

So why gamble with switching fuels when heating your home with oil is one of the safest bets around?

Heating oil generates a high number of Btu’s of heat, so it will warm your South Carolina home more evenly. Your home will be among the warmest on the block every winter. That’s why oilheat is the ultimate comfort fuel!

Findings from the Consumer Energy Council of America

There’s a reason the nonprofit Consumer Energy Council of America concluded that changing fuel sources does not make economic sense. In truth, the greatest pathway to saving energy and money is by upgrading to a new efficient oilheating system instead of switching from one fuel to another.

That’s because the key to saving money and energy is efficiency. And the key to achieving high efficiency is through new, modern system technology, not through choosing this fuel or that fuel. An old system, be it heating oil or any other fuel source, will not be nearly as efficient as the new, higher-efficiency systems that are now available.

Modern, efficient oilheating systems in well-insulated homes can help homeowners achieve the same amount of warmth while using as much as 40% less fuel. This results in huge savings and reduces consumption considerably.

Keep this in mind if you ever considering switching fuels. Oilheat systems are no different than any other outdated heating system, regardless of the fuel used. Old systems can generate higher-than-necessary fuel bills, but they can be easily replaced with equipment that incorporates today’s new oilheat technology.

And with the availability of equipment rebates made available through the South Carolina Petroleum Marketers Association, it is easier than ever to cut your fuel costs and save even more by upgrading to the best oilheating system available.
