Why Choose Oil Heat this Winter?

On a cold wintry morning, there’s nothing quite like the comfort of knowing your home is heated with consistent, satisfying oil heat. At Parkside Fuel, we know that homeowners have a wide variety of other heating options, including natural gas, electric, wood, and propane systems. So why choose oil heat? The simple truth of the matter is that choosing Mount Sinai Oil Tanks to heat your home is one of the smartest decisions you can make. Here’s why.

Oil Heat is Efficient Heat

The leader in efficient heating systems has always been oil heat. The efficiency of getting new oil heating equipment on the market ranges from 83 to 95 percent. By comparison, the efficiency of gas is between 78 and 95 percent, electric ranges from 27-31 percent, air-to-air heat pumps are between 51 and 62 percent, and geothermal heating pumps range between 76 and 82 percent efficient.

Oil Heat Minimally Impacts the Environment

Oil heat has one of the lowest environmental impacts of any heating source! The Air pollution that comes from oil burners is extremely minor and insignificant. We are proud to say that Heating oil is non-toxic, biodegradable, and even contained zero carcinogens. Oil heat is also 516 percent better for the environment than electric heat, and 2,437 percent better for the environment than wood heat.

A Heating Oil Tank Gives Your Home Security

Homeowners with heating oil tanks have a supply of fuel oil always on hand. They are secure in the knowledge that their heating needs are covered, come what may. When other homeowners are worrying about the weather, broken or malfunctioning gas mains, or loss of pressure in the gas pipeline, oil heat customers are protected and worry-free.

Oil Heat Systems Have Longer Lifespans

A properly-maintained and cared-for oil heat system has an average life expectancy of 30 or more years. By comparison, the average life expectancy of a gas furnace is between 11 and 14 years.
