Oil heating is safe, effective, and quite energy-efficient. Oil produces more heat, performing at a higher efficiency rate than any other form of heating. For every dollar you spend on oil heat, approximately 85 to 95 cents go towards heating your home. This form of heat is non-explosive, making it much safer than propane or natural gas. Oil heat burns hotter and presents a lower annual cost to operate, leaving your home cozy and your wallet a little thicker. If you live in West Chester, PA or the surrounding areas in Chester, Delaware or Montgomery counties, Timothy Off can repair your existing oil heating unit or install a brand-new one in your home. The Timothy Off team is committed to providing local homeowners with oil heater service they can count on.

If you are considering replacement, the oil heating experts at Timothy Off can answer all of your questions and help you choose the heater brand and model that is ideal for your home.

Types of Oil Heaters We Service
There are two primary types of heating oil systems used in area homes and businesses: furnaces and boilers. The team at Timothy Off specializes in each kind and provides oil heater service for both. We install, replace, maintain and repair boilers and furnaces. Modern oil-fired furnace technology has improved substantially over the years, and the available AFUE ratings now range from 84 to 90. There are two main types of heating oil boilers: hot water and steam. These hydronic heating technologies have also advanced greatly and now receive Energy Star certification with AFUE ratings up to 87.
An oil-fired furnace is similar to gas and electric furnaces but runs on heating oil. These systems ignite the oil in a combustion chamber to provide a flame that heats cold air that has been drawn in. The heated air then passes through a heat exchanger that separates the warm air from the combustion flue gases. The warm air is distributed to the home via ductwork, and the flue gas are vented outside the home.
Hydronic or Steam Boiler
There are two main types of hydronic boilers—hot water and steam—and oil-fired boilers are quite similar to gas furnaces with the primary difference being that heating oil fuels the burner as opposed to natural gas or propane. That burner creates hot water or steam that is then fed through pipes to radiators or radiant panels. Once the water cools, it is returned to the boiler in order to be reheated.
Convert to Natural Gas from Oil
If you currently have oil heating but have access to a natural gas line on your residential or commercial property, then you may want to consider making the switch. Some customers prefer the convenience and simple billing, and if those advantages interest you, contact Timothy Off to learn more.
