Being safe at home is just one of the many reasons people prefer to heat their home with oil instead of natural gas.
People who have oil heating equipment that’s 20 years or older may be considering switching to natural gas to heat their home because they think this move could save them a lot of money on heat.
Obviously, many variables affect fuel usage, with the big wild card being the type of winter we have. Will the temperatures be average, colder than normal or warmer than normal?
Like any mechanical device, oil heating systems require all components to work together. But some parts are more important than others. One component that is particularly vital to the efficient and effective operation of your heating oil system is the burner.
Winter almost always brings us periods of extreme cold. When it feels like the Arctic outside and you have your heat pumping away, please check your fuel tank levels regularly.
