What is Bioheat®?

Happy mother and daughter

The oilheat industry continues to undergo a revolution that is significantly improving oilheat’s efficiency and cleanliness, thanks to vast reductions of sulfur levels.

As a result, heating oil today burns more cleanly, with lower emissions. You also benefit from better heating efficiency and easier maintenance, since low-sulfur oil creates fewer deposits on heat exchangers.

This is only the beginning. The future is bright too, as even more highly-refined fuels become more widely available. For example, Bioheat is a blend of regular heating oil and biodiesel made from renewable materials like soybeans and sunflowers. The industry is committed to creating a bright future for its customers, and Bioheat is just one example of their new innovations. Bioheat is 100% made in America and requires no modifications to your existing system.

Key points about clean-burning heating oil

  • Sulfur levels have been reduced dramatically and home heating oil is now considered an ultra-low sulfur fuel. This improves heating system efficiency and cleanliness and reduces air emissions.
  • Bioheat supports more efficient equipment, reduces emissions dramatically and eliminates the source of many equipment breakdowns.
  • Today’s blends, with the greatest percentage of biodiesel, make oilheat one of the cleanest heat sources in the country.

When you combine the new oilheat with other recent technological breakthroughs, it’s a whole new ballgame. Heating oil has never been as clean, or felt so good, or so warm.
