Although many people associate home heating oil with winter and fall months, the truth is that it can be used all year-round. With so many benefits, heating oil is used to not only heat NJ homes, but also fuel hot water heaters. For homeowners, using an oil-fired water heater offers an economical and environmentally friendly way to have access to virtually unlimited amounts of hot water.
Say goodbye to cold showers and say hello to hot water, fast!
Take a look at some of the benefits of using an oil-fired water heater and how experts at Point Bay Fuel can help you keep your water running hot all year long (even while the washing machine is going).
Benefits of Using an Oil-Fired Water Heater
The more people that live in a house, the more hot water you’ll require. Between the endless loads of laundry, showers, baths and dishwashing cycles, a bigger family requires larger amounts of hot water. For homeowners looking to produce a reliable, cost-efficient supply of hot water, oil heat can be an easy answer.
Overall, oil-fired water heaters cost less to operate than electric models. Although it may cost more up front to install, its efficiency in heating water means extremely low operating costs over the lifespan of the unit.
In addition to being low-cost, oil-fired water heaters also have high recovery rates, which means you get hot water faster. And for a large family that tends to run out of hot water quickly, this is key.
A recovery rate, expressed in gallons per hour, is the rate at which the water heater can raise temperatures of the inlet water by 90 ¼ F. Commonly, 50-gallon water heaters have recovery rates of around 40 gph, but larger, more efficient models go as high as 50 to 60 gph.
