What Is Bioheat® Fuel, and Why Should I Use It?

Green energy

Looking for a way to reduce your home’s impact on the environment without converting your oil-fired home heating system? Just switch to Bioheat® fuel.

Bioheat is a clean-burning alternative to traditional home heating oil – and we have plenty of it on hand (we blend it ourselves) to keep you warm this heating season.

Don’t know much about BioHeat? Here’s the lowdown:

  1. BioHeat is made by mixing heating oil with biodiesel – a renewable energy resource made in America from cooking oils and other natural sources.
  2. A BioHeat blend is named by the percentage of biodiesel it contains – for example, B5 is five percent Biodiesel. Typical blends range from two to twenty percent.
  3. Since BioHeat burns cleaner than regular heating oil, it causes less wear and tear on your equipment. That means your heating system will last longer, and that less heating equipment will reach the landfill in the long-term.
  4. Most oil-fired heating systems accept BioHeat with no modifications needed, and using it will not void your warrantee in most cases.
  5. Because BioHeat is produced domestically, you’ll reduce demand for foreign oil every time you fill your tank.
  6. Here’s the best part: we offer BioHeat at the same price as our high quality conventional heating oil. In fact, New York State offers a tax credit to customers who use biofuels: you could qualify for a credit of 20¢ per gallon, which could save you $200 for every 1,000 gallons of BioHeat fuel purchased!
