Light fuel oil is sulphur-free, clean and offers a reliable performance in the most demanding conditions. It performs excellently in cold weathers and has been developed for demanding arctic conditions. In addition, it is a very stable, combustible, non-explosive product, unlike other fuels, where this issue can be a more concerning factor. If you drop a lit match in a pool of fuel oil, the flame will simply die out. However, the same cannot be said about propane or natural gas. Similarly, a leak within an oil supply chain will not generate an explosion.
In general, the benefits of fuel oil when compared to natural gas are that oil offers more safety, efficiency, and warmth. It is also more popular and economical to use.
- Safe and Secure: Fuel oil is not explosive and can only be ignited when using a specific system. This means it can be stored safely and used in boilers and furnaces without any safety issues.
- Economical: Depending on when you purchase fuel oil, you will probably find that it is cheaper to use than gas and electricity. It’s also very efficient, which means you won’t have to refill your tank as often as you might think.
