Heating Oil is as Safe as it is Reliable

October 19, 2019

Heating oil is efficient, dependable, clean and versatile – as any New Jersey homeowner could tell you! But, while these attributes are important, nothing beats the fact that heating oil is also safe. When it comes to keeping your home and family warm and safe, heating oil provides peace of mind.

Heating oil is safe because…

  • It will not burn in its liquid form. In fact, a lit match will be extinguished if placed in a vial of heating oil.
  • Should the system malfunction, it will release smoke or soot to alert the homeowner long before any dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide enter the air.
  • Today’s heating oil storage tanks are made of durable, rust resistant material, so the chances of a release are much smaller than they once were and should last for many years.
  • Heating oil is non-toxic, and has significantly lower parts per sulfur (PPM) than previous iterations of the fuel. That means greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced substantially. 

Heating oil is one of the safest fuels available to homeowners – for them and for the environment! You can always count on Tomasso Bros. Energy to bring you heating oil at great prices through the convenience of our website. Visit us online to order your fuel, or contact us to learn more!
