There are several options for energy when it comes to keeping your Southern Tier home warm and comfortable.
Lately, some have jumped on the all-electric bandwagon, insisting heating oil is passé. However, heating oil still offers many advantages that make it an ideal choice for home heating. With dependable heating oil delivery from Rinker Oil and Propane, you can enjoy all the benefits that heating oil offers.
Heating oil is a remarkable source of heating energy, offering both efficiency and comfort. With every gallon consumed, it produces an impressive 140,000 Btu’s of heat, equivalent to the power generated by approximately 70,000 60-watt lightbulbs! This surpasses the heating energy produced by the same amount of any other heating source, including electricity.
It’s interesting to note that heating oil is actually non-explosive. The fuel stored in your tank poses no more risk of explosion than the water in your backyard swimming pool. Rest assured, it’s a remarkably safe choice.
Furthermore, by having a heating oil tank on your property, you can always rely on maintaining a secure and readily available supply. Highly skilled professionals handle the transportation and handling of heating oil, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and techniques that prioritize safety.
An oil-fired heating system presents an extremely low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. In the event of a malfunction in the oil burner (usually caused by inadequate maintenance), the safety mechanisms within the unit will typically shut down the heating oil furnace or boiler.
Rinker Oil and Propane delivers Bioheat® fuel, which is a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and biodiesels.
These biodiesels are made with natural, renewable resources like plant oils, animal fats and tallows, recycled commercial cooking oils, algae, and more.
ULSHO adheres to stringent standards that restrict the sulfur content to 15 parts-per-million (ppm) or less. This remarkable reduction of 99% in sulfur levels, when compared to heating oil from three decades ago, marks a substantial leap forward. As a result, you now have access to cleaner and more environmentally friendly heating options, enhancing your overall experience.
By significantly reducing sulfur content in our heating oil, we have achieved an impressive 70% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional alternatives. This remarkable achievement showcases our unwavering dedication to the environment and underscores the substantial impact we can have in the fight against climate change.
Compared to traditional No. 2 heating oil, Bioheat fuel offers cleaner burning properties that can enhance the efficiency of your home’s furnace or boiler. This, in turn, leads to significant savings on heating costs. Moreover, Bioheat fuel helps reduce the accumulation of deposits on heat registers, minimizing wear and tear on your heating system. As a result, you can expect fewer breakdowns, reduced repair expenses, and the potential for an extended lifespan of your heating system by several years.
