There are some key advantages to oil furnaces. They last for significantly longer than many other options. Owners regularly report getting up to 30 years of use out of their oil furnace. They are also incredibly efficient, with a conversion rate of roughly 80% of fuel to heat. As a self contained unit they also burn cleanly and can be an especially good option for smaller homes. Requiring fuel means a steady supply is necessary, but with many options this is not often a problem for oil furnace owners.
