Bioheat® Heating Oil

Oilheat has just gotten smarter - it's eating its vegetables!

Bioheat® Heating Oil - heating oil blended with biodegradable, organic materials such as soybean oil - is one of the "hottest" things happening in home comfort. Renewable and non-toxic, Bioheat® heating oil is not only kind to Mother Earth; it's kind to heating systems, too.

Bioheat® Heating Oil Characteristics:
  • Domestically produced, soy-based Bioheat® heating oil can literally be grown at home - helping to support our nation's farmers and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

  • It is extremely clean burning.

  • It has the highest Btu content of any alternative fuel.

Bioheat® Heating Oil Benefits for Homeowners:
  • Bioheat® heating oil produces the same satisfying heat as "regular oil."

  • It costs just about the same as "regular oil."

  • It lubricates heating system.

  • You don't have to make any modifications to your burner or tank.

  • You don't have to buy any new equipment.

  • You don't have to change your budget plan, payment plan, service contract or warranties.

Testing conducted by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) found that a Bioheat® heating oil blend of 80% low-sulfur heating oil and 20% biodiesel (B20) reduced sulfur oxide emissions by as much as 80% or more. Nitrogen oxide emissions were lowered by about 20%. In addition, carbon dioxide emissions can be lowered by 20%.

If everyone using heating oil used a B5 blend (5% biodiesel/95% heating oil), 400 million gallons of regular heating oil could be conserved. This would be a big step towards conserving oil, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
