Oil remains a smart choice for your home, and it’s getting better all the time. Your heating oil has a low sulfur content, which is better for the environment and helps your equipment perform more efficiently. And we always have plenty of fuel to keep you warm.
Overall supply remains plentiful too, as U.S. production of crude oil has soared in recent years.
By contrast, homeowners who heat their homes with natural gas have to
worry about the aging infrastructure of natural gas pipelines, which are being strained to capacity, especially during extreme cold spells. Many of these pipelines are also leaking methane — a destructive greenhouse gas — into the atmosphere.
