Converting from Gas to Oil: What you should know

In light of recent events in the news, we have been getting many inquiries about changing from gas to oil. Many people are thinking about how they heat their homes and whether they are doing it in the safest and most cost-effective way. We would like to just give some information on the differences.  Your safety and that of our environment is our main concern. With that in mind, we’d like to take a minute to discuss the benefits of heating your home with oil. 

Experts across the board agree that heating oil is a great, safe way to heat your home. Heating oil is not explosive. It only ignites when its temperature reaches 140 degrees. It must be vaporized before it will ignite, and will not burn in a liquid state. Dropping a match into heating oil is the same as dropping it into the water. 

How about the environmental benefits? As we’ve discussed in previous blogs, the popularization of Ultra-low sulfur content fuel means your fuel burns cleaner. This reduces the number of dangerous emissions, as well as reducing sulfur buildup in your tank, meaning a more efficient burn. This is better for you and the environment, drastically reducing the amount of pollution released into our air. 

With Broco Energy, you have choices. You tell us when and how much oil to deliver, and your supply is stored at your home. Typically, natural gas limits your choices, coming from one provider.
