What Is Bioheat® Fuel Composed Of?
Bioheat® fuel is a blend of renewable biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating oil. Biodiesel is made domestically from a variety of agricultural or recycled resources, which are treated and purified. Biodiesel is then mixed with low-sulfur heating oil to create Bioheat® fuel. The blend ratio typically varies from B5 (5% biodiesel) to B20 (20% biodiesel).
Is Bioheat® Fuel Better Than Standard Number 2 Fuel Oil?
Bioheat® fuel burns cleaner, which allows your heating system to run more efficiently, and in turn reduces your fuel consumption and your energy bills. It’s also made domestically, reducing our dependency on foreign oil and adding jobs to the US economy. Plus, because it’s made from renewable biodiesel, it’s a sustainable fuel option. And, because it’s renewable, it’s also beneficial to the environment.
Does Bioheat® Fuel Require Me to Modify My Heating Equipment?
No! If you already have an oil boiler or oil furnace, your system is ready to use Bioheat® fuel. Bioheat® fuel requires no expensive modifications to be used in oil heating systems. Plus, many blends of Bioheat® contain performance additives designed to extend the longevity and efficiency of your heating system. So not only is the fuel affordable, safe, and renewable, but it can also deliver your home more reliable, comfortable heating for even longer.
Does a Delivery of Bioheat® Fuel Cost Extra?
Bioheat® fuel comes at no extra cost. That’s right—if you’ve been ordering heating oil from Sandri, you’re already having Bioheat® fuel delivered to your tank now.
