The Benefits of Oil Heat

Did you know that more than 13 million families and businesses in North America use Oilheat! Its benefits are simple: oil burns hotter than gas, making it more comfortable, it's 16% more efficient than gas, and it burns cleanly so it's safe for the environment.

It's also much safer - it doesn't explode! In every area of home heating, Oil heat is the clear energy resource winner!

What are some of the advantages of oil?


Modern oil equipment is typically 83 to 94 % efficient. New oil heat technology also generates heat and hot water faster than older systems with excellent heat transfer throughout your home.

Clean burning

The efficiency of new burners means that oil heat produces very little smoke and combustion discharge. Electric heat may produce no emissions at your home, but the power plants which make the electricity may produce significant amounts of combustion by-products.


While all the major sources of heat generation have excellent safety records, equipment malfunctions can occur. With oil, a leak in the supply line will not generate an explosion source. Heating oil is non-explosive. A match dropped into a pool of oil will simply go out. The same cannot be said of propane or natural gas.


Oil remains the best energy value with the lowest cost per BTU of any fuel.

Dependable Supply

Our dealers maintain oil storage facilities to make sure they have the oil when you need it. Most also have multiple wholesale supply sources to ensure uninterrupted distribution. Our dealers also offer automatic delivery options, so you can be assured you will never run out of oil.


Myths vs. Facts

Now, more than ever before, there is an ongoing and vigorous debate over the use of various energy resources and their potential impact on the environment. As part of this debate, much is being written about the United States' reliance on foreign oil, the impact of fossil fuels on the environment, and the need to continually improve energy efficiency.

Energy consumers, business leaders, policy makers, and the news media do not need more rhetoric; they need to ensure a balanced dialogue on the economic and environmental benefits of all fuels. As such, it's important to understand and separate commonly held myths about heating oil from the facts:

Myth: Oilheat is expensive.
Fact: Heating oil actually costs less than it did in 1980, when adjusted for inflation, and serves about 23 million Americans in 8.6 million households.

Myth: Oilheat does not produce as much energy as other fuel sources.
Each gallon of heating oil contains approximately 139,000 units of thermal energy (BTUs), making it an economically competitive energy source.

Myth: Oilheat today is inefficient.
Fact: Oilheating systems in use today use substantially less fuel than they did just 20 years ago. For example, an average home that used more than 1,200 gallons of heating oil in 1989 now uses only 900 gallons, or 25% less. This decrease in usage is attributable to advances in equipment efficiency and household conservation. New heating oil systems boast energy efficiency ratings from 83 to 94%.

Myth: Oilheat has not responded to concerns about global warming.
Fact: Since 1970, the heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately one third.

Myth: The heating oil industry is dependent on foreign energy from hostile suppliers.
Fact: This "myth" is complete nonsense. The United States produces the vast majority of its heating oil and imports 10 to 15% from Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Canada and Mexico also provide the United States with a significant amount of its crude oil. Advances such as Bioheat® Heating Oil mean more heating oil can be produced in the Midwest instead of the Middle East. And new exploration technologies such as horizontal drilling also mean the United States can responsibly produce more oil at home.
