Winter has Michigan in its icy grip, and it’s expected to be a cold one.
That makes a warm, comfortable home even more essential. When you come in from the cold, you want to get warm and get warm fast. If your home is heated with heating oil, you get just that! That’s because heating oil gets your home warm faster than any other heating energy source, including natural gas and electricity.

Safety. Oil must be sprayed into a fine mist by a precise combination of pump pressure and nozzle angle to produce combustible vapor in order to burn.
Environmental friendliness. Oil heat today is 95 percent cleaner than it was in 1970, and new oil-heating systems produce no soot, dirt, or odor. In reality, one BTU of heat generated by a new and properly maintained oil heating system produces fewer pollutants – and less carbon monoxide – than one BTU produced by natural gas. Because heating oil burns so cleanly, it is not subject to clean air regulations.
Energy efficiency. In terms of efficiency, modern oil heat boilers and furnaces are between 83 and 95 percent efficient. That is why upgrading your heating oil equipment to a more energy-efficient system can save you up to 30% in comparison to electrical heating systems.
Comfort. Oil-heated homes are comfortable even during the coldest days of a Michigan winter. That’s because heating oil quickly burns at 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Electric heat pumps lose effectiveness the colder it gets outside, sending your electric bills through the roof. Heating oil burns 300 degrees hotter than natural gas, which means your home will heat faster and you’ll need to burn less fuel to stay comfortable.
Budget friendliness. Heating oil users get up to 30% more heat for their heating dollar than natural gas or electricity customers.
