Advantages of Oil Furnaces

Oil furnaces are known for their reliability and long life span. Most new oil furnaces have an AFUE rating of around 83, which means that 83 percent of the fuel they consume is turned directly into heat! An oil furnace is a convenient choice for homes without access to a natural gas line. Additionally, oil furnaces tend to have a longer lifespan. While many manufacturers give a 10-year lifespan, these furnaces can live upwards of 15 years.

Benefits of Oil Boilers

Oil-fired boilers send oil through a combustion chamber that then feeds into the burner, which heats the water. The cost-effectiveness of your boiler depends on your home’s needs and any limitations on your property, like fuel line access. Keep in mind that proper insulation and weatherproofing will help save you money on your energy bills no matter what kind of boiler you have!

Is Oil Heat Energy-Efficient?

An energy-efficient system is the smartest way to use oil heat. New oil heat systems have an average AFUE in the low-to-mid 80s. Advanced systems can have ratings 92 percent or higher. Today’s heating oil is 95 percent cleaner than it was in 1970, and oil burner emissions are at near-zero.  Learn more about optimizing the efficiency of your oil heat system from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Is Oil Heat Safe?

When properly handled and maintained, oil is completely safe, as is an oil heat system. Heating oil only ignites or burns if it has vaporized. Like natural gas furnaces, oil furnaces do not pose a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning when they are clean and running efficiently. This is why it is crucial to keep your oil furnace clean and in perfect working order. We recommend that you install a carbon monoxide detector and alarm in your home, and that you familiarize yourself with carbon monoxide safety measures. If you ever have a question about carbon monoxide, please call us.
