Bioheat Fact or Fiction?

Whether you are a longtime Bioheat customer or are new to The Fuel Company and want to learn more about this eco-friendly energy option, we’re breaking down some common questions so that you can better understand the benefits of this green heating fuel.

FACT OR FICTION? Bioheat is a renewable heating fuel.

FACT! Bioheat is a renewable heating fuel because it is made from a blend of ultra-low sulfur oil and renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is renewable because it is made from renewable and recycled resources, like agricultural vegetable oil by-products and recycled animal fats.

FACT OR FICTION? Bioheat produces lower emissions compared to other fuels.

FACT! By blending ultra-low sulfur heating oil with renewable biodiesel, Bioheat is significantly cleaner burning than other liquid heating fuels. It produces fewer emissions than traditional heating oil and is nontoxic. All of these factors contribute to cleaner air in our community.

FACT OR FICTION? I would need a new heating system to use Bioheat in my home.

FICTION! If you already have an oil boiler or oil furnace, your system is ready to use Bioheat. Bioheat requires no modifications to be used in oil heating systems, which means if you don’t already order Bioheat for your home, you can do so whenever you’re ready.

FACT OR FICTION? Bioheat helps support jobs and our local economy.

FACT! According to Biodiesel.org, the Bioheat industry employs roughly 60,000 people and counting. By ordering Bioheat heating fuel from a local energy provider like The Fuel Company, you are doing your part two-fold to support your community. We appreciate your business!
