The fuel you choose to heat your commercial building has a major impact on everything from your wallet to your safety to the environment. However, there are so many options it can be difficult to know which one is best for you. If you are struggling to make a decision, here are some of the benefits of using heating oil over the alternatives.
4 Reasons You Should Use Commercial Heating Oil
1. Decreased Fuel Costs
Heating oil is cheaper than other commercial fuel options, such as natural gas. In fact, after being adjusted for inflation, the price of oil has actually declined over time.
2. Better Temperature Regulation
An oil heat system burns hotter than other fuel sources, such as propane. This allows it to distribute warmth evenly while quickly increasing the temperature throughout the entire building.
3. Increased Safety
Heating oil is a much safer fuel source than many alternatives. A small oil spill or leak will not release noxious fumes into the air. It’s also non-combustible, so you never have to worry about an explosion. And if there is a problem, your system will produce clear signs, such as smoke.
4. Decreased Environmental Footprint
Over the last two decades, the sulfur content of heating oil has been reduced by over 90%. This has made it one of the least-polluting energy sources available and more environmentally friendly than alternatives like natural gas or electric heat.
