Safe


Today's Oilheat delivers peace of mind.

Safe-xSmall.jpgWhen it comes to your home and your family, you want your heating system to be safe and reliable. Here are ways in which Oilheat exemplifies safety and dependability:

  • It will not burn in a liquid state. In order to light Oilheat on fire, you must heat it above 140 degrees, the temperature at which it begins to vaporize.
  • There are visible warnings if there is a malfunction. With home heating oil systems, carbon monoxide leaks rarely happen without warning. If an Oilheat system should malfunction, it will release smoke or soot as a visible warning; these serve as early indicators that something is wrong, long before dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can be released into the air. Having your equipment serviced regularly is key to safe operation.
  • It is non-explosive. Oilheat is not explosive in its liquid form.
  • Today’s tanks are stronger and less likely to leak. Whether your oil storage tank is hidden in your basement, in a pantry, outside or even underground, today’s tanks are composed of state-of-the-art steel and fiberglass, many with double walls of plastic and steel and sensors, and should last for decades.
