Want an eco-friendly way to heat your Long Island home this fall and winter?
You already have it!
Every gallon of you buy from Southville Petroleum is an ultra-low sulfur blend (ULSHO) – one of the most environmentally friendly home energy sources available today.
Compared to other fuels used for home heating, ULSHO:
Is more efficient – ULSHO reduces sooting and scaling compared to regular heating oil, which means less heat is lost up your chimney. Comparing ULSHO’s efficiency to natural gas, there’s no contest: you would have to burn 40 percent more natural gas to receive the BTU equivalent of burning ULSHO heating oil.
Burns cleaner – Compared to regular heating oil, ULSHO reduces sulfur dioxide by 75 percent, particulate matter by 80 percent, nitrous oxide by 10 percent and carbon dioxide by two percent.
Lengthens your equipment’s lifespan – Cleaner fuel means you’ll have fewer deposits on heat exchangers, which means a longer life and less maintenance for your equipment. A longer lifespan means fewer furnaces and boilers in the landfill.
And the future looks even better for heating oil: super-efficient heating systems are already being used outside the US with great results.
