What is Standard Kerosene?
Kerosene was once the most used energy source for central heating and lighting. But, with the introduction of gas and electricity, kerosene is now primarily used to power jet engines, oil lamps and oil fired domestic heating systems.
Kerosene, also known as 28-second oil, burns faster and hotter than other fuel sources, making it an efficient choice for homeowners. Kerosene is less expensive to produce than other fuels and also produces fewer fumes.
We refer to kerosene as standard kerosene because we now also offer a premium alternative alongside it.
If you’re looking for heating oil near you that is reliable, efficient and the right price, standard kerosene could be the answer.
Benefits of standard Kerosene
Not only does standard kerosene last longer than other oils, but it comes with a range of other benefits that have made it the most popular heating oil across the UK.
Kerosene has a clean burn and a lower risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The lack of fuel vapour from kerosene means it can’t explode or cause a fire. This makes it completely safe to use indoors and to store in a heating oil tank on your premises.
One of the biggest benefits of using kerosene is that it produces more British Thermal Units (BTUs) than other energy sources. BTUs are the measure of the amount of thermal energy needed to raise the temperature of water. This means you can use less kerosene for the same heating output, which in turn makes it a cheaper energy source.
Kerosene is non corrosive and so can be stored in your heating oil tank for long periods of time without losing any value. It lights quickly, which can be handy if you have a power cut and can even be used as a cleaner for bike chains or other greasy areas. Kerosene is a year round reliable heating oil for your home.
How to store standard kerosene
When buying standard kerosene, make sure you have a suitable place to store it. Store your kerosene in an external container, such as a heating oil tank, to guard the heating oil against damaging contaminants.
Kerosene’s long storage life can also help you to save money on your energy bills. You can buy your heating oil in bulk to take advantage of the cheap kerosene prices during summer and store it safely until you need it.
