Did you know that innovations in heating equipment and conservation means that an average consumer using 1,200 gallons of heating oil in 1989 now uses only 800 gallons, or 25% less? We have put together a short list of facts and conservation tips to help you understand how heating your home has evolved over the years. See below for more heating information that can help you save on your next energy bill:

Cold Hard Facts

  1. Heating oil burns almost 95% cleaner than it did in 1970. Today, residential oil burners produce less than one-third of one percent of total U.S. particulate emissions.
  2. The heating oil industry's commitment to renewable fuels, means that there will be thousands of good-paying jobs available for highly trained technicians, engineers, researchers, oil field workers, and others.
  3. The United States produces the vast majority of its own heating oil and imports 10 to 15 percent from Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

What You Can Do To Help Conserve

If you can't remember the last time you had your heating system tuned up - it's probably time. Your system's maximum performance and efficiency may decrease without regular tune-ups. Similarly, you should consider replacing your heating system if it's more than 20 years old. Chances are, it's not as energy efficient as the units produced today, and that alone can be costing you a fortune. When you need professional furnace and home heating services, call ABC.
