Should You Buy a Home That Uses Heating Oil?

Heating Oil Makes Good Sense for Homebuyers

heating oil furnace massachusettsMost prospective homebuyers don’t set out to look for a new home with a particular type of heating system. But, if you find a home you like with a heating system you aren’t used to, it may give you pause. After all, change can be hard – but it doesn’t have to be, when it comes to buying a Massachusetts house that uses heating oil. Below, Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling energy experts will let you know how heating oil stacks up against other heating systems, so you can make the decision that works best for you.

Affordability

Fuel prices may be going up across the board, but heating oil consistently ranks as one of the more affordable options. There are lots of heating oil suppliers in our area, and that tends to keep prices down, in stark contrast to the natural gas dealers, who don’t have much competition.

Dependability

Heating oil is a reliable fuel because you won’t be dependent upon a utility company the way homeowners who use electricity and natural gas to heat their homes are. And heating oil is stored in a tank on your own property, so you can make sure do you have a full supply to get you through the winter, without having to worry about running out.

Energy efficiency

Heating oil is considered about 95% efficient, meaning that it takes less energy to provide heat when compared with other types of fuel. Heating oil heat is also warmer than the heat produced by electricity or natural gas, which means it will last longer in your home. In other words, heating oil provides increased comfort and warmth, for less money.

Environmental-friendliness

Our Bioheat Plus® fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil with biodiesels. We are firmly committed to green energy solutions that not only enhance comfort and convenience for our customers, but also save money over the long term while protecting the environment. That’s why we have been delivering Bioheat fuel instead of traditional heating oil for some years now.

Bioheat enables us to offer you an efficient, ultra-clean-burning fuel that can be used with the current heating equipment in your new home. It burns so cleanly that it saves you money on fuel and extends the life of your equipment. Bioheat is not only better for your equipment and the environment, but it also costs virtually the same as traditional heating oil.

Accessibility

Even if you live in a remote area, it’s no big deal to get a heating oil delivery to your location – especially if you fill your tank before the winter weather truly hits. Natural gas companies don’t serve more remote locations, and if something goes wrong, it could take a while to get the electric company to service your area. But heating oil trucks can go anywhere. If you need us, we will be there.
