Is heating oil environmentally friendly?

Heating oil burns at a 99.9% rate and new heating equipment ranges between 85% and about 94% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). So if your furnace has a rating of 94% AFUE, it means that for every dollar you spend on heating oil, 94 cents is converted into heat and 6 cents is lost through the exhaust. This makes your heating fuel oil appliance one of the most important aspects to heat your home efficiently. Given these technological advances that allow these efficiencies, heating fuel oil is as environmentally friendly as other fuels. Please visit or for more information.
