If you’ve been spending $150 here and another $300 there to keep your old oil heating system running, consider replacing it soon with a modern oil heating system. The performance and reliability of heating equipment typically deteriorates after 15 years (sooner if maintenance has been neglected).
In just the last decade, there have been major improvements to oil heating equipment. Today, oilheat is cleaner, greener and more economical than ever. The latest oil heating systems are small, smart and super-efficient and can save you, on average, about 30% on your annual heating costs. There are many different equipment options to fit your budget and your local heating oil company has expertise in all types and models of oil heating equipment.
In addition, many states in the Northeast, including Maine, now require heating oil to contain an ultra-low-sulfur blend. As a result, every gallon of oil your local heating oil dealer puts in your tank will burn more cleanly, with lower emissions. You also benefit from better heating efficiency and easier maintenance, since ultra-low-sulfur oil creates fewer deposits on heat exchangers.
Ultra-low-sulfur heating oil also allows for the introduction of super-efficient heating systems, which are already being used with great results outside of the United States. Such systems will make oilheat even better!
Contact your local oilheat company for more information. Be sure to ask about current rebates in Maine that could save you as much as $500 on your investment in a new oil heating system. Your heating oil company can help you qualify for these rebates.
