What’s In the Heating Oil Keeping Your Albany, NY Home Warm?

Just because it’s spring doesn’t mean the furnace in your Albany, NY home won’t kick on every now and then, especially at night when warmer temperatures often dip down again. As upstate New Yorkers, we know we’ll probably have to rely on our heating systems well into spring, at the very least to take the chill off when the sun goes down. For that evening warmth your family enjoys, you can thank a brontosaurus.

Thank a brontosaurus? What?

Most of us only think of the Family Danz delivery truck filling up our tank with the heating oil we need for our Albany, NY homes. Most people don’t give much thought to what that heating oil is actually made of. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, our heating oil, which comes from crude oil, is what’s called a fossil fuel. That means it is comprised of hydrocarbons that formed from plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. (Cue the brontosaurus.) In the U.S., crude oil is produced in 31 states, with most of it coming from Texas, North Dakota, California, Alaska and Oklahoma.

The heating oil Family Danz delivers to your Albany, NY home isn’t crude oil, though. It has been refined using a complex process that, essentially, breaks the oil down into components that are then converted into new products. These new petroleum products are used for such things as powering motor vehicles, paving roads, generating electricity, and of course, heating your home.

There are different grades of oil, but you can rest assured that the heating oil Family Danz supplies to your Albany, NY home is premium grade fuel, provided to you at the lowest possible price. Our home heating oil contains special detergents that are formulated to keep your heating system running clean and at maximum efficiency. These heating fuel additives reduce service calls, extend equipment life, benefit the environment and save you money.
