Discover the benefits of oil for your heating system
Here are some good reasons to favour the warmth and comfort of oil.
TANKS: NO CONCERNS.
Today’s advanced tanks are made of corrosion-resistant steel, fibreglass and polyethylene.
This means sustainability and security. Modern tanks are versatile thanks to their space-saving designs that make them easy to install inside out.
Autonomy and ambiance.
Oil burning stoves work by gravity. Hence, they are never affected by power outages. Moreover, some oil stoves add to the ambience of a room with beautiful flames that are clearly visible through a large glass door, emitting a radiant and comfortable heat. For furnaces or central boilers, a low power generator can easily power them in case of power failure.
CLEANER THAN propreEVER.
Today’s oil heating is a lot cleaner than it was 25 years ago. Nowadays’ high-performance equipment achieves 92% efficiency. This improved equipment efficiency has significantly reduced particle emissions. Modern burners have turned it into a clean burning source, according to the US Environmental Protection Department. All this results into a much cleaner environment.
MORE HOT WATER, FASTER.
An oil system provides a more comfortable heat and domestic hot water five times faster than electricity and twice as fast as natural gas. Why? Because amongst all the energy sources, oil produces the hottest flame.
Oil is non-explosive. Exposed to the fire of a match, oil doesn’t ignite.
MORE EFFICIENT THAN EVER.
Today’s oil heating is a lot cleaner than it was 25 years ago. Nowadays’ high efficiency ENERGY STAR equipments achieve 92% efficiency. This improved equipment efficiency has significantly reduced particle emissions. Modern burners have turned it into one of the cleanest burning sources, according to the US Environmental Protection Department. Hence, all this results into a much cleaner environment and optimum energy efficiency, so you are actually paying for the heat you consume.
Oil heating produces the most comfortable heat possible. It burns at high temperature, this allows you to quickly get the desired degree of heat.
It offers superior comfort to that of natural gas, electricity and other other residential source of heat.
In addition, oil-based systems allow you to add a wide range of options such as central air conditioning, heat pump, humidifier and electronic filter.
FREE CHOICE OF SUPPLIER.
The free choice of your supplier = advantageous prices compared to natural gas (Metro Gas) and electricity (Hydro-Quebec) which are monopolies.
Despite the ups and downs, the average price of heating a residential or commercial area with oil is historically cheaper than the cost of other energy products.
Taking inflation into account, the price of oil has barely changed since the 1950s. The same cannot be said about other sources of energy! In fact, it is predicted that the price of oil is likely to increase more slowly than that of natural gas and electricity.
The industry has continuously lowered the sulfur content of oil, hence reducing the pollutant emissions.
Well maintained, an oil heating system does not emit any smell.
Warm air heating systems continually filter the air that is breathed in your home or business. An advantage for the respiratory tract. Air quality is an important commitment for us.
