As energy options continue to diversify, we’d like to remind our heating oil customers why we still highly recommend fuel oil for your home heating needs:
Heating oil is non-explosive, so you can rest easy each winter knowing that you are heating your home with a safe, reliable, and efficient fuel provided by a local company you can trust. According to the American Energy Coalition, heating oil is the best choice when it comes to safety.
The heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 33% over the last four decades. This means you can feel good knowing that the fuel you use to heat your home is steadily becoming more and more environmentally friendly. On the other hand, natural gas utilities routinely tolerate leaks of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
Additionally, heating oil customers can use Bioheat® Fuel in their oil heat systems. Bioheat is a blend of regular home heating oil and biofuel that offers all the benefits of traditional heating oil and with added bonuses:
Converting to another fuel source like natural gas can cost more than $10,000 in parts and labor, while upgrading your current boiler or furnace can save you up to 30% on your annual fuel bills. Staying with oil heat is a smart choice for more than its high-efficiency heating equipment; the market price continues to remain steadily low for Massachusetts residents. Plus, unlike natural gas heating bills, you won’t have to worry about hidden fees.
As an oil customer, you can choose which local company delivers your fuel and services your equipment. Unlike major utilities, we at Snow’s Fuel Company are available to assist you at any time and in any weather.
