What is Bioheat® Fuel?
A common question that many of our customers ask is “What is Bioheat® Fuel?” - and this is a great question! Bioheat® Fuel is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional heating oil and natural gas heating. What makes Bioheat® Fuel eco-friendly is its innovative blending of biodiesel and ultra-low-sulfur heating oil (ULSHO). With industry standards constantly evolving, blends containing more biodiesel are on the way! Coan Heating and Air Conditioning currently uses B35 Bioheat® Fuel as the standard fuel we provide to all our customers.
What is Biodiesel Made Of?
Biodiesel can be made from a wide variety of renewable resources including animal fats, raw vegetable oils, used cooking oil, recycled grease, yellow grease and even algae! This makes biodiesel one of the most sustainable fuels on the planet, with the oils for biodiesel being produced as byproducts of other processes.
Will I Have to Change My Heating System?
The great news is that Bioheat® Fuel requires no new heating system components or proprietary parts! Bioheat® Fuel will work flawlessly with your existing oil-fired heating system and it can be stored in any heating oil storage tank. Bioheat® Fuel is actually better for your system, as it improves heating efficiency and actively cleans your system over time. This improves the life of your heating system and reduces maintenance needs, lowering your costs!
What is Bioheat’s Environmental Impact?
Because Bioheat® Fuel utilizes a blend of renewable energy sources and ultra-low-sulfur heating oil, it’s one of the cleanest burning fuels available! B35 Bioheat® Fuel, the fuel we offer to all our customers, reduces heating oil’s overall carbon footprint! B35 also dramatically reduces emissions of particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide, improving air quality. By 2050, our industry plans to use up to 100% renewable liquid heating fuel and achieve net-zero emissions!
