Oil heat consumers in New Hampshire already know how efficient and affordable staying warm with oil can be. Along with its value in efficiency and safety, heating oil has proven to be a cost-effective energy source for homeowners and business owners across the state. In 2018, the transition to ultra-low sulfur heating oil helped customers save even more. Find out how ULS heating oil makes the most of your heating season budget.
Ultra-low sulfur heating oil isn’t just better for the air we breathe. It’s better for our heating equipment, too! ULS heating oil has just 15 ppm sulfur content, compared to traditional heating oil at 4,000 ppm. In a study at Brookhaven National Laboratory, researchers investigated how different levels of sulfur affected fouling and corrosion rates in heating equipment .
Researchers found that lowering sulfur content dramatically decreases the corrosion and fouling rates of boilers, and extends boiler heat exchanger cleaning intervals. This means that ultra-low sulfur heating oil will help New Hampshire oil heat customers save big on service costs!
So how does the lower frequency of corrosion and boiler buildup translate into savings for oil heat customers?
New Hampshire’s switch to ultra-low sulfur heating oil in 2018 is helping oil heat customers spend less with more benefits.
