Fuel Oil vs. Natural Gas

Benefits of Oil Heat

Why choose fuel oil for your home heating? As a Landry & Martin Bioheat® oil delivery customer, you are keeping your home warm responsibly when it comes to safety, efficiency, and environmental effects.

Safety for Your Home
Bioheat heating oil is non-explosive, so you can enjoy each winter knowing that you are heating your home with a safe, reliable, and efficient fuel provided by your trusted local fuel company, Landry & Martin. For greater peace of mind for the safe operation of your system, don’t forget to schedule your annual tune-up!

Protection for Our Environment
Over the last four decades, the heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 33%. On the other hand, natural gas leaks in the U.S. produce 28 million tons of methane – a greenhouse gas which is about 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide – every year.

Savings for Your Wallet
As an oil heat consumer, converting to natural gas can cost more than $10,000 in parts and labor, while upgrading your current oil-fired boiler or furnace can save you up to 30% on your annual fuel bills. Upgrading to a new oil heating system can also give you peace of mind that your equipment is less likely to need emergency repair.

Overall Value for Your Family
When you heat your home with oil, you can choose which local company delivers your fuel and services your heating equipment. Landry & Martin is local and available to assist you at any time for your fuel delivery, heating system, and air conditioning system needs.

When you’re an oil customer you become a part of our family and are our highest priority. We know you, and if and when you need service we’ll be there for you. Things don’t work that way with gas heating. There’s no service provided by the big gas companies. And because there is no established relationship, service isn’t always dependable with gas service companies, especially in a cold snap. When it comes to service, oil heat beats gas, hands down
