If you forget to consider inflation and if you ignore the vast improvements in oil-burning technology, the rise in pricing paints an ugly picture. But American’s live in a new world of energy-efficient residential heating technology.
Seniors may remember the comfort of oil heat contaminated by the scent of wasted fuel, but those are days gone by. Modern oil-burning furnaces present a new experience: Exceptional home comfort free of oil-related odors and the extra expense of product waste.

Availability – Risks of Heating With Oil
In past years, American experienced several shortages in energy supplies. But perhaps only the seniors actually remember the associated waiting lines. For more than thirty years, the U.S. has remained relatively free of any significant problem with energy supplies. This statement stands in reserve of the natural disasters that have sometimes hinder the flow of energy in almost every form, including electricity and oil-based products.
