Why heating oil works for you

The average high temperature in January in the Portland area is 31°. The average low temperature is 13°, with a strong possibility that it will be even colder.

On days like that, you want a heating fuel that can stand up to the cold. That fuel is heating oil. Why? Because heating oil gets your home warm faster than any other fuel source.

Today’s heating oil offers efficiencies of 85% to 90%, or higher. It also heats more efficiently than electricity or natural gas. That gives you a lot of bang for your buck!

Another benefit is that heating oil today also burns much more cleanly than the heating oil of your parents’ and grandparents’ day. That means lower greenhouse gas emissions.

With heating oil, your heating fuel is right at your home. You’re not dependent on an electrical grid or a neighborhood natural gas line for heating your home.

We have kerosene too!

Lots of homes in southern Maine use kerosene for heating.

The big advantage kerosene offers is that there is no gelling in frigid temperatures. Gelling is when fuel oil thickens, and it can reduce or possibly even block the flow of heating oil into your heating system. If that happens, your system could break down, and you’ll need a service call to get it fixed so that your home stays warm.

Mobile homes and homes built on slab foundations need to store their heating oil outside. For those homeowners, preventing gelling is critical.
