Heating Oil Warms Your Home Evenly and Efficiently

heating oil North Reading, MA Even though so much has improved with today’s heating oil, something important has remained the same. People in North Reading, MA and elsewhere in our service area always know that no matter how cold it gets, they can always rely on heating oil to keep them comfortable.

Frosty temperatures always reinforce the value of owning an oil-heated home. That’s because heating oil generates nearly 140,000 Btu’s of heat for every gallon burned and warms a home evenly and efficiently.

What’s the secret? The flame in a heating oil system burns hundreds of degrees hotter than in other energy systems, which helps keep oil-heated homes toasty warm during our New England winters.

Of course, homeowners who take advantage of the latest heating oil technology, such as high-efficiency heating oil boilers and heating oil furnaces, increase their odds of having the warmest, most comfortable home in their neighborhood.

Is Heating Oil Safe?

Heating oil is a remarkably safe home heating fuel. First, heating oil cannot explode. The fuel that sits in your tank is as likely to explode as the water in your backyard swimming pool. It’s that safe.

Plus, with a heating oil tank on your property, you can always count on having a secure, on-site supply. Heating oil is carefully transported and expertly handled by highly trained professionals, who use equipment and techniques that keep safety at the forefront.

Additionally, a heating oil system poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If an oil burner malfunctions (most often due to a lack of maintenance), the safety devices in the unit will typically shut the heating oil furnace or heating oil boiler off.

Bioheat® Fuel Raises the Bar

Broco Energy delivers Bioheat fuel to our heating oil customers and it is an absolute game-changer when it comes to heating your home, saving you money, and helping the environment.

Bioheat fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil combined with premium biofuels made from renewable resources such as animal fats, recycled restaurant cooking oils, algae, and plant oils such as soybeans and sunflower.

Because it is cleaner burning, generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional heating oil, Bioheat fuel helps to increase system efficiency, which reduces your home heating expenses while keeping your home comfortable.

Because it is clean burning, Bioheat fuel leaves fewer deposits on your system’s internal parts. That helps to reduce wear and tear, meaning you will likely have fewer breakdowns and a longer life expectancy for your heating oil boiler or heating oil furnace compared to running it with traditional heating oil.
