Why Choose Oil Heat?

The Facts about Home Heating Oil As more energy options become available, how can you be sure you are heating your home with a reliable fuel that suits both your budget and the comfort of your home? For homeowners considering converting to natural gas heating equipment, learn the pros and cons of your available energy options and think about the return on your investment as oil prices drop and gas prices increase.

Home Safety: Each winter as an oil heat customer, know that you are heating your home with a safe, reliable, and efficient fuel provided by a local company you trust. Unlike natural gas, heating oil is non-explosive, so your family’s protection is not at risk for sudden dangerous hazards.

Financial Savings: Converting to natural gas can cost more than $10,000 in parts and labor, while upgrading your current oil-fired boiler or furnace can save you up to 30% on your annual fuel bills.

Environmental Advances: The heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 33% over the last four decades. Did you know that natural gas leaks in the U.S. produce 28 million tons of methane – a greenhouse gas about 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide – each year?

Progress toward Energy Independence: Over the last six years, U.S. oil production has increased by more than 70%, working to lessen our dependence on the amount of foreign oil we import. Additionally, alternative fuel options like Bioheat® are becoming more widely used and produced by blending heating oil with domestic renewable resources.

Overall Value: As an oil customer, you can choose which company delivers your fuel and services your equipment. Unlike major utilities, Melia Fuel is available to assist you 24/7 if you have a heating emergency and can provide personalized recommendations for your energy needs.
