Kerosene oil has a long history of being used to heat homes. It has many advantages and is a great choice for many homeowners. If you are interested in this heating source, here are four reasons to consider kerosene oil heaters:
- Safety. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a very real and serious health risk with many heating systems. Using kerosene oil reduces that risk greatly. Kerosene is clean-burning and emits a very low amount of carbon monoxide.
- Cost Efficient. Kerosene production costs are low, which translates to low costs for you. Kerosene also burns hotter than other sources of energy, so you will use it for a shorter period of time. Reducing the amount of oil you have to burn will also reduce the cost for you.
- Reliable. Kerosene won’t freeze or react to cold temperatures. It also has a long shelf life, so you do not need to worry about its effectiveness over time.
- Environmentally Friendly. When compared to other fossil fuels like coal or wood, it produces fewer fumes and burns cleaner. It can also be used in other areas of your home. It can be a fuel for kerosene stoves or used to light kerosene lamps if the power goes out.
