The cost of Today’s Oil heat, adjusted for inflation, has actually risen less dramatically than natural gas. It’s also projected to rise at a lower rate than natural gas, propane and electricity.
Is oil heat clean?
Today’s Oil heat produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than ever before and residential oil burner particulate emissions are now at near zero levels. It’s a lot cleaner than it was 25 years ago.
Is oil heat safe?
Unlike natural gas and propane, Today’s Oil heat is non–flammable at room temperature, non–explosive and it poses a very low risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.
Should I upgrade my furnace and tank?
Depending on the age and condition of the furnace and tank, it may make sense to upgrade to a modern, high efficiency oil–fired furnace or a fiberglass tank.
Should I switch to natural gas?
When you factor in all of the costs associated with changing energy sources, it simply doesn’t make economic sense to switch.
How will oil affect the re-sell value of my home?
Oil heated homes account for significant percentage of the housing market. Other factors, like location, size, proximity to schools, age, condition etc., will likely have a far greater impact on the future value of your home. However, you can improve the value of your home by upgrading your equipment.
