Let’s take a look at some heating oil basics and answer some questions you may have in the process.
Heating oil is a product of crude oil that has been put through a refining process called distillation. During distillation, hydrocarbons are removed from the crude oil and further purified and blended to make the heating oil that operates your furnace or boiler.
Oil heat is a safe way to heat your home. Heating oil doesn’t explode. It won’t even ignite if you drop a lit match into a container of it. Heating oil only becomes combustible once it’s been vaporized by an oil burner at temperatures greater than 140° Fahrenheit. And your furnace or boiler has a safety mechanism that will shut it off before a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide is able to build up.
The heating oil used today is much cleaner than the heating oil that was used ten or twenty years ago. And the industry keeps improving. Valley Oil is proud of the quality oil we deliver to our customers.
