Bioheat® is a mixture of petroleum-based heating oil and plant-based biodiesel, a fuel made out of various types of recycled vegetable oil. Bioheat can be used to heat boilers and furnaces and offers several benefits over traditional heating oil. Apple Oil, a residential oil delivery service in West Haven, CT, discusses these advantages below.
5 Advantages of Bioheat
1. Lower Cost
The cost of Bioheat is slightly lower than that of petroleum fuel. However, it burns more efficiently, produces more energy per gallon, and ultimately lowers your home heating costs.
2. Environmentally Friendly
Because it is plant-based and renewable, Bioheat is a more sustainable resource than fuel oil. It is also generally safer for the environment because it is biodegradable and non-toxic.
3. Improved Air Quality
Because it is non-toxic, it eliminates the dangerous pollutants emitted by burning petroleum. This improves your indoor air quality—as well as the outdoor air throughout your neighborhood—and makes it safer for your family to breathe.
4. Requires No Equipment Upgrade
Bioheat works with your current oil burning equipment and requires no modifications. You can start using it in your furnace, boiler, or diesel generator today.
5. Reduces U.S. Oil Dependence
Because it is locally produced from U.S. agricultural products, use of Bioheat lessens the amount of domestic petroleum consumption and in turn reduces the country's dependence on foreign oil. This improves security and moves the country toward greater energy independence.
