Despite being indexed on the ever-changing price of oil, fuel oil is still a viable energy in the long term.
Fuel oil is a fuel that is derived from petroleum and used to power boilers. One kilogram of fuel oil provides about 12 kilowatt hours of energy when burned, making it a good quality fuel for the money. Thanks to new technology, the performance efficiency of oil-fired boilers is about 90%, which guarantees additional savings. A well-maintained domestic oil-fired boiler can often last more than 20 years, with the burner having to be replaced at some point in time.
Oil is stored in a tank, usually in the basement of a home or building.
More than 4,000 establishments distribute fuel oil in France. It requires an on-time supply and is readily accessible throughout the entire nation.
