Because home heating oil is very stable and non-explosive, yet still combustible, it is one of the safest, most energy-efficient methods of heating a home or business. The efficiency is a result of the high BTU content found in a gallon of oil, versus an equal measure of natural gas, propane, or electricity.

Some of the reasons to choose oil to heat your home or business include:
Service Life Expectancy
A well-maintained oil furnace will provide dependable service for up to 30 years compared to an average of 14 years for a gas furnace.
Heating oil is biodegradable, non-toxic and contains no carcinogens.
Unlike other types of heating sources, oil is non-explosive. It can be ignited only with the use of an advanced system for use in a furnace or oil burner.
Efficiency and Economy
Modern oil heating systems perform at 85-95% efficiency or higher and oil burns 300 degrees hotter than natural gas. This means it will also heat water and your home’s interior much faster than other fuels. Annual heating costs for oil heat are consistently lower than those of electricity, natural gas or propane.
Oil heat is much cleaner that it was a few decades ago. It is odour-free and will not release soot or dirt into your home.
Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world and is the world's fifth largest oil producer and fourth largest oil exporter. You need never worry about maintaining a constant supply of heating oil.
