Kerosene oil heaters make an excellent emergency backup for heating your Mooresville home or business during an emergency blackout situation.
If you rely on electricity for heating your Mooresville, North Carolina home or business, you know that sometimes storms can result in an outage that lasts long enough to leave your home colder than is comfortable. It is always a good idea to have an emergency plan in place, and here at Bumgarner Oil, we think the best option to go with is kerosene oil heaters.
Kerosene oil heaters are easy to operate, and when properly maintained and operated, they are quite safe. Part of the reason for this is that kerosene burns very cleanly, so you won’t need to worry about hazardous vapors. The important thing is to recognize that they do deplete the oxygen in the room, so keeping a window slightly cracked during use is advisable. Modern kerosene oil heaters have an oxygen depletion shutoff safety feature, so they won’t continue running if the oxygen has fallen to an unsafe level.
You will find that our kerosene prices are very affordable, and because kerosene has a long shelf life, it is fine to have a supply on hand to be ready for an emergency blackout situation. Kerosene is also very energy-efficient, so it doesn’t take as much to produce the heat you need to stay safe until the power comes back on.
We are here to answer any questions you may have about kerosene oil heaters and their safe use, as well as provide you with information about kerosene itself, such as how to store it safely or to give you a quote.
