Hey, Richmonders ... have you heard about Bioheat? A blend of heating oil and renewable biofuel, it's the hottest thing happening in home heating. Now that you know the benefits of heating oil
, check out the benefits of that incredible biofuel known as Bioheat.
- Bioheat is homegrown. Domestically produced, Bioheat helps support our nation's farmers and reduces our dependence on foreign oil. Some Bioheat is already made from biodiesel produced from Virginia soybeans!
- Bioheat burns cleaner than straight heating oil. It contains almost no sulfur, and significantly reduces particulates and greenhouse gases - emissions that contribute to air pollution and global warming.
- Bioheat passes clean air testing. It is the only alternative fuel to have successfully completed the rigorous Health Effects Testing Requirements of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments.
- Bioheat costs about the same as conventional heating oil - which is very economical.
- Bioheat lubricates heating system parts - which could mean longer life for a heating oil boiler or furnace ... and fewer service calls for homeowners.
- Bioheat is safer than conventional heating oil (which is extremely safe), because it has a higher flash point.
- Bioheat has the highest BTU content of any alternative fuel, for more efficient burning and cozy comfort.
- Bioheat requires no burner or tank modification. It blends right in with conventional heating oil. Using Bioheat and biofuels also does not affect any heating system warranties.
