The Risks of Oil
Oil produces 38% more greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) than propane.
Appliances and furnaces that run on oil have higher maintenance costs and a shorter lifespan.
Even the smallest oil leak can require expensive clean-up and remediation. Propane just dissipates harmlessly into the air.
Homeowners could pay higher insurance premiums or require add-on coverage due to the higher risks of heating with oil.
