What is residential heating oil?
First thing’s first—let’s start with the basics. Here’s a crash course on residential heating oil in case you need a refresher. If not, feel free to skip down the page to learn more about Haffner’s heating oil ordering and delivery.
When you think about it, it’s all in the name. Also known as home heating oil or fuel oil, residential heating oil is a type of fuel specifically designed for use in residential heating systems in homes, apartments, and other residential buildings. It’s typically a blend of petroleum-derived hydrocarbons and is similar to diesel fuel. The main difference is that it’s specifically formulated for use in heating systems rather than automobiles.
When it comes to storage, residential heating oil is kept in a tank located on the property of the homeowner or in a designated storage area. You can find this tank underground, aboveground, or in a basement. Both the location and the tank capacity depend on the layout and needs of the household. From this tank, the heating oil is burned in a furnace or boiler to produce heat that is then distributed throughout the building via a central heating system. Think radiators, baseboard heaters, or forced-air systems. By nature, these systems are designed to be efficient, providing consistent heat while minimizing fuel consumption.
Heating oil is usually delivered to the residential customer by a fuel delivery company, which is where Haffner’s comes in! We monitor the fuel levels and schedule regular deliveries based on your household’s usage and needs. We also have automatic delivery plans available, which is when we track fuel levels and ensure timely refills so you don’t have to worry or stress about an empty tank and a potential lack of heat.
What are the benefits of heating oil?
Now that you have a feel for the heating oil basics, here are some of the top benefits of heating oil. Because heating oil has a naturally high energy density, it’s able to produce a significant amount of heat per unit of fuel making it one of the most efficient fuels for heating systems. This quality lends itself to quick and effective heating of a space such as your home. This also means that heating oil is quite cost-effective, especially when you choose Haffner’s.
When it comes to environmental impact and safety, modern heating oil is formulated to be more environmentally-friendly and non-explosive so it’s a cleaner and safer heating option when compared to traditional heating oil. Even in the rare event of a leak, it’s easy to detect because of its distinct odor.Above all, heating oil is a great choice because it is known to be highly reliable.
These systems provide a consistent and uninterrupted heat source, no matter the weather. And when you’re enrolled in a Haffner’s automatic delivery plan, you can rest assured that you’ll never run out of fuel. Can you imagine anything worse than no heat during a heavy midwinter storm? Talk about an uncomfortable and even dangerous situation.
