House energy efficiency

Clean, efficient and safe Bioheat® keeps many homes in Massachusetts warm and safe, even during the coldest nights in the Bay State. And with a steady and reliable supply of bio heating oil from your local Massachusetts fuel dealer, you can sit back and feel good about using this affordable heating source in your home.

You’ll feel even better knowing that historic levels of domestic oil production have given us an abundant supply of Bioheat at stable prices.

Heating Oil Keeps Getting Better

One of the biggest transitions in heating oil in recent years has been the move toward ultra-low sulfur heating oil. This refined fuel lowers maintenance, improves efficiency and reduces emissions from heating systems. Additionally, cleaner burning fuel has also paved the way for the next generation of compact, super-efficient boilers and furnaces.

Many gallons of heating oil now include Bioheat®, a blend of heating oil and renewable materials like vegetable oils. Because Bioheat® integrates seamlessly with all heating oil systems, much of the heating oil sold in Massachusetts is already Bioheat®. For anyone who wants to use Bioheat®, no changes to your existing oilheating system are necessary!

3 Great Bioheat® Benefits

  • A buildup of sulfur in the heating system can lead to system maintenance issues. The drastic reduction of sulfur in biofuel for home heating means that there will be far fewer system issues, which will lead to lower maintenance costs for Massachusetts homeowners.
  • Because there is virtually no sulfur in the heating system thanks to ultra-low sulfur Bioheat®, your oilheating system can burn the fuel more efficiently, leading to lower heating bills.
  • While regular heating oil has been very clean for decades, the ultra-low sulfur Bioheat® is even cleaner, producing near-zero particulate emissions.

Only the Beginning

The quality of heating oil will get even better in the years ahead. Soon, homes that heat with oil could be using even cleaner burning bio blends.

The oilheat industry is excited by these new opportunities because they will positively influence the long term future of the industry and the environment while uplifting the oil heat experience for millions of customers.

Knowing more about today’s oilheat in Massachusetts will make you feel good about how you heat your home—now and well into the future. That’s why it’s important for you to know that with every passing year, heating oil continues its evolvement into a newer, cleaner and more efficient fuel.
