Is heating oil really clean burning, genie?

Yes it is! I’m glad you asked.

Over the years, your Genie has been happy to see many innovations that have revolutionized heating oil technology, making home heating oil a very efficient, clean burning energy source. New technology called Clearburn Science has made it 95% more efficient than it was just 25 years ago. As a result of those improvements, today’s modern oil burners produce negligible amounts of smoke and soot. There is no dirt or odor evident, in your home or out. That’s not only good for you and your family, but good for our environment and the air we breathe, too! (I do notice things up there on my magic carpet you know.) In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, oil furnaces can burn at a 90% efficiency rate. That compares to only 77% for gas furnaces and a miserable 31% efficiency rating for electric heat furnaces. For all my numbers friends reading this, every gallon of oil burned generates a whopping 138,000 Btu’s of heat. That means your heating dollars go further, and that’s money in your pocket!

Did you know…that oil heat emissions aren’t even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act? That’s how clean home heating oil systems are.

But wait, there’s more! Not only does home heating oil burn cleaner, it’s safer, too! Unlike gas, home heating oil will not ignite unless it is heated to 140 degrees F and converted into a mist. (And even a genie can’t make that happen without a furnace, boiler, or engine!) In fact, a match dropped into a bucket of home heating oil would go out just as if you had dropped it into a bucket of water?

Heating oil systems also have a much lower carbon monoxide risk than gas. Now there’s some real peace of mind for you.

So not only is home heating oil clean burning and safe, today it’s even cleaner, more reliable, and more cost-effective than ever. The truth is that home heating oil is one of the best heating sources available. That’s probably why there are about 10 million oil heated homes in the country today, with 350,000 of them built in the last decade.
