Hundreds of records were broken along the Eastern Seaboard when a historic cold spell gripped our region right after Christmas and wouldn’t let go. By New Year’s Day, we were bundling up against sub-zero temperatures and wind chills that made the outdoors feel like we had been transported to the Arctic.
It was so bad we kept hearing about daily frostbite warnings as we trudged outside to begin our work or school day. To add to the winter wickedness, just a few days into the New Year, we got blasted by what meteorologists called “a bomb cyclone.”
But as they say, all things must pass—and it did.
The silver lining in all this is that such frigid temperatures reinforced the value of owning an oil-heated home in the Delaware Valley, That’s because oil generates nearly 140,000 Btu’s of heat for every gallon burned and warms a home evenly and efficiently.
This allows homeowners to enjoy high comfort levels and great value—no matter how cold it gets. If someone is looking to find the warmest homes in the Delaware Valley, chances are good it will be the ones heated with oil.
Of course, homeowners who take advantage of the latest oil heat technology increase their odds of having the warmest, most comfortable home on their block.
Technology has brought great improvements in efficiency that has reduced annual fuel consumption by as much as 40%. This has saved oil heat 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 most 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.
