Frequently Asked Questions

heating oil pennsylvania The delivery team at Lawman’s Oil has put together information to answer some of the most common questions customers have about heating oil usage and the process of preparing for a delivery, measuring your tank level, avoiding run-outs and more.

Q: How Much Oil Will I Need During Winter?

A: Many factors affect your fuel use, including the outdoor temperature, the size of your home, the quality of insulation in your home, the efficiency of your furnace or boiler and your family’s own heating preferences.

But here’s one basic rule of thumb that will help to give you a general estimate. If outdoor temperatures average about 32° over a 24-hour period, a typical 2,500 square foot house will burn about six or seven gallons of heating oil per day.

Q: How Do I Read My Oil Tank Gauge?

On top of the tank is a clear glass or plastic cube that is marked with numbers that resemble the gas gauge of your car: F, ¾, ½, ¼. A red marker or float commonly indicates the amount of fuel left in your tank – if the float is at the bottom of the gauge or not visible at all, your tank is empty or nearly empty.

To make sure the gauge is working, carefully remove the outer case and gently press the float down. If it bobs back up to the original position, the gauge is working. If the gauge is not working, contact us and let us know. The last thing you want to do is to start guessing how much oil is left in your tank.

Q: How Can I Tell How Many Gallons I Have Left?

A: The most common size of heating oil tank is 275 gallons, but the size of the tank doesn’t indicate how much fuel it actually holds.

When full, a 275-gallon tank holds approximately 235-255 gallons depending on how deep the vent pipe goes in to the top of the tank; the rest of the space is left to allow for air or debris at the bottom of your tank. So, if your gauge reads “½” in a 275-gallon tank, you have about 117 gallons left, not 135 or so as you might first expect. Other tank sizes may include 230 and 240 gallons (the size is often indicated on the side of your tank; older models may not include that information). 

Q: How Can I Avoid Running Out?

To make winter deliveries easier and stress-free for you, consider using our convenient and free automatic delivery program. Combined with a wireless tank monitor, this allows us to be accurate about your fuel needs and lets us make timely deliveries to your heating oil tank.

But if you still prefer to call for heating oil, you need to give us extra time when conditions are harsh in order to avoid running out of fuel. It’s best to call us when your oil tank falls to the one-quarter mark.

Q: What Can I Do to Be Ready for a Delivery?

In bad winter weather conditions, our delivery drivers may encounter some problems that can cause your heating oil delivery to be delayed or rescheduled. In normal conditions, you can expect your delivery within two business days of your order.

Here’s what you can do to help make sure that your B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel can be delivered in a timely fashion.

  • make sure your outdoor oil tank is cleared of ice and snow.
  • shovel a path to your tank or oil fill pipe after a snow storm.
  • mark the location of an underground tank with a stake that is visible above snow so our driver can find it easily.
  • keep your driveway sanded and plowed and create a wide enough path so our bulk trucks can navigate it safely.

Keeping your tank accessible throughout the year will put a smile on the faces of our drivers. Thank you in advance for your help!

What Kind of Oil Is Heating Oil?

heating oil delaware There is a lot of work involved before heating oil eventually reaches your heating oil tank. It all begins with refineries extracting heating oil from crude oil, which is a complex mix of hydrocarbons plus oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur. The refining process separates crude oil into different “fractions” while removing impurities.

The lightest fractions of crude oil eventually become propane, butane and petrochemicals while slightly heavier fractions are used to produce gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel fuel and No. 2 home heating oil. (Did you know that diesel fuel and No. 2 fuel oil are virtually the same in terms of their chemical composition?)

Next, even heavier fractions from crude oil are transformed into No. 4 or No. 6 heating oils. This is used for commercial and industrial buildings, schools and hospitals.

In recent years, there have been significant strides in the refining of heating oil that make it much cleaner and increasingly greener. Notably, most of the sulfur content has been removed, which is why today’s heating oil generates so little soot compared to the past. Heating oil is also being blended with 100% renewable biofuel made from plants and other organic matter. This further reduces the fuel’s carbon emissions.

Lawman’s Delivers B20 Bioheat Plus® Fuel

Lawman’s Oil has delivered heating oil blended with renewable biofuel for a few years now. The B20 part of our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel stands for what percentage of the fuel is made with biofuels. That means that our Bioheat fuel is made with 20% biofuels. This high level of biofuel is why B20 Bioheat Plus fuel burns extremely clean—generating less greenhouse gas emissions than a natural gas system.

Clean-burning Bioheat Plus fuel has virtually no negative impact on the environment. It produces near-zero levels of particulate matter during the combustion process.

Because of its super-clean-burning properties, Bioheat Plus fuel also eliminates the source of most equipment issues.

As biofuels in Bioheat fuel are increased in the coming years, this highly refined home heating oil will move closer and closer to becoming a carbon-neutral fuel.

Bioheat fuel is also made in the United States, which supports local farmers, local industries, and the local economy.

Heating Oil and Efficiency Improvements

Because it is cleaner burning, Bioheat Plus fuel helps to increase system efficiency, which reduces your home heating expenses while still keeping you comfortable.

B20 Bioheat Plus also leaves fewer deposits on your system’s internal parts. That helps to reduce wear and tear, meaning you will likely have fewer breakdowns and a longer life expectancy for your oil boiler or oil furnace than compared to running it with traditional heating oil. And while B20 Bioheat Plus fuel can do all these things, it functions the same way conventional No. 2 heating oil does. That means you don’t need to add anything to or modify your boiler or furnace in any way.

Heating Oil: Extremely Safe

Heating oil has always been one of the safest home heat sources because it’s nonexplosive and the fuel in its liquid state cannot ignite.

What most people don’t know is that the advent of Bioheat fuel has made home heating oil even safer. That’s because Bioheat fuel has a higher flash point or ignition temperature. It’s just one more thing that homeowners who use Bioheat fuel can feel good about.

Answers to Your Questions about Our Clean Burning Fuel

bioheat emissions delawareAs we near the end of a summer season that was filled with loud warning bells about the deadly effects of climate change—record-high temperatures, droughts in some places, flooding in others, severe storms and wildfires—curiosity is growing about our environmentally-friendly Bioheat fuel. We’ve tried to provide answers to the most common questions our customers have about this renewable fuel, which represents a smart solution for the delivery of a better, clean-burning fuel for your home and our environment.

Why Is Bioheat Fuel Better for the Environment?

Bioheat fuel has been proven to reduce emissions because it is low-carbon heating. The biodiesel that is blended with heating oil is considered a biogenic fuel that eliminates carbon output. By contrast, when traditional fossil fuels that do not contain biodiesel are burned, they take carbon that was stored in soil and put 100% of that carbon into the atmosphere.

By contrast, the combustion of biofuels and other biogenic energy sources recycles carbon-dioxide emissions through renewable plant materials and other biomass feedstocks. That’s why you’ll keep hearing a lot about net-zero carbon emissions in the years ahead.

Can Bioheat Fuel Really Save Me Money?

Yes. Bioheat fuel burns more cleanly and more efficiently than conventional heating oil. You’ll use less heat to get the same amount of warmth, and your heating system will last longer. You’ll also likely find that you need fewer repairs on your system. You may also be able to extend the time between system maintenance service. All of this amounts to savings on your household heating expenses.

How Is Bioheat Fuel Made?

Bioheat fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil with renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products. These products can range from soybean oil, used cooking oils and inedible corn oil to canola, tallow, fats and algae. New studies have also shown the viability of using various grasses for the production of biofuel.

These renewable products are defined as feedstocks for producing biodiesel. Blends of biodiesel in heating oil are designated in percentages. For example, a 5% blend of biodiesel is defined as B5. B10 refers to a 10% blend, while B20 is a 20% blend. B20 Bioheat is officially known as Bioheat Plus® fuel, which is the fuel that Lawman’s Oil delivers to your home.

Is Biofuel the Same Thing as Bioheat Fuel?

No. Biofuel is a broad term that can include various products including not only biodiesel, but ethanol, renewable hydrocarbon diesel, and raw vegetable oil known as RVO or LR100. It’s important to note that raw vegetable oil does not meet industry specifications; it is not biodiesel or Bioheat fuel and it is not suitable for home heating oil use.

Is Bioheat Fuel Made in America?

Yes. Bioheat fuel is domestically made and helps our economy by helping meet our nation’s energy needs without incurring the cost for new land use or drilling, or paying premium prices for imported fuels.

The U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry now support about 65,000 U.S. jobs and more than $17 billion in economic activity each year.

Nationwide, some three billion gallons of biofuel were consumed last year, and biofuel use is expected to exceed six billion gallons by 2030. This will eliminate over 35 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually. Expect those numbers to get even more impressive as biodiesel takes us farther along the road to clean energy.

Do I Need to Replace Or Change Anything on My Equipment to Use Bioheat Fuel?

A: No. Most major heating system manufacturers accept Bioheat fuel as covered under their warranties for use, and you won’t need to make any changes to your furnace, boiler, or oil storage tank to use it. Performance standards for Bioheat fuel have been approved by ASTM International, an organization that sets industry standards for fuels and lubricants.

Safety Means Peace of Mind with Today’s Heating Oil

heating oil safety new jerseyWithout question, home heating oil is one of the safest fuels you can use to warm your Delaware Valley home.

To start with, heating oil cannot burn in its liquid state. It actually takes an advanced high-tech burner to ignite the oil. Before combustion can even occur, heating oil must first be vaporized by your oil burner at temperatures above 140°.

Heating Oil Cannot Explode

Rest assured, the fuel you have stored in your tank right now is very safe. In fact, if you drop a lit match into a bucket of heating oil, the flame would go out just as if you dropped the match into water.

Safe Heating Oil Storage

Modern heating oil storage tanks have been designed to be virtually leak-proof. Whether your oil storage tank is located in your basement or outside your home, the tanks being installed today are designed with corrosion-resistant materials. Today’s tanks can last for decades. New technology also provides remote monitoring to protect against the rare event of a leak and guarantees that you will always have a sufficient supply of heating oil on hand.

Plus, with an oil tank on your property, you can always count on having a secure, on-site supply at your home. The fuel is easily transported and handled by highly trained professionals using equipment and techniques that keep safety at the forefront.

Contrast that to natural gas delivery. If an underground natural gas pipeline gets damaged, customers may lose their supply until repairs get done. And if a serious problem occurs with a gas pipeline, such as excessive pressure, explosions can occur.

Oil vs. Gas: Carbon Monoxide Safety

Unlike natural gas, a heating oil system poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If an oil burner malfunctions (most often due to a lack of maintenance), the safety devices in the unit will typically shut the furnace or boiler off.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that heating oil consumers shouldn’t have working carbon monoxide detectors inside their homes, especially near all bedrooms. Besides a malfunctioning boiler or furnace, there are many other sources of carbon monoxide leaks, including:

  • operating unvented appliances for long periods of time
  • back drafts caused by pressure imbalances near the heating system
  • leaving a vehicle idling in an attached garage
  • running a gasoline-powered generator in a basement or attached garage
  • a blocked flue

Make sure you check your carbon monoxide (and smoke) detectors regularly to confirm they operate properly!

You will be able to enhance heating oil safety even further by getting system maintenance done as required. This will ensure that your oil boiler or oil furnace operates with optimum safety and efficiency.

Premium, Clean-Burning Fuel from Lawman’s Oil

Lawman’s Oil only delivers B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel. This is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil combined with premium biofuels made from renewable resources such as animal fats, recycled restaurant cooking oils, algae, and plant oils. Our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is made from locally sourced products, which also aids in reducing waste within our communities.

The B20 part of B20 Bioheat Plus fuel stands for what percentage of the fuel is made with biofuels. That means that our Bioheat fuel is made with 20% biofuels. This high level of biofuel is why B20 Bioheat Plus fuel burns extremely clean—generating less greenhouse gas emissions than a natural gas system.

A Green Fuel Right Now, and for the Future

bioheat for homes new jerseyThere is no longer any doubt that Bioheat® fuel—a blend of renewable biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating oil—represents a smart solution for the delivery of a better, clean-burning fuel for your home and the environment.

Today, more than 125 production plants around the country make biodiesel. The United States biodiesel industry now produces about three billion gallons of biodiesel annually.

Increased production isn’t just about achieving a cleaner environment. It’s about building a stronger economy too. The biodiesel industry supports nearly 60,000 jobs and generates billions of dollars in GDP, household income, and tax revenues.

Why Biodiesel Is Carbon Neutral

Transitioning to Bioheat fuel is a win-win situation: it’s been proven to reduce emissions because it is low-carbon heating —and it doesn’t require any expensive system upgrades in your home.

The biodiesel blend in Bioheat fuel is composed of various organic products, including vegetable oils, animal fats, and even algae. New studies have also shown the viability of using various grasses for the production of biofuel.

Biodiesel is considered a biogenic fuel that eliminates carbon output. By contrast, when traditional fossil fuels that do not contain biodiesel are burned, they take carbon that was stored in soil and put 100% of that carbon into the atmosphere.

The combustion of biofuels and other biogenic energy sources recycles carbon-dioxide emissions through renewable plant materials and other biomass feedstocks. That’s why you’ll keep hearing a lot about net-zero carbon emissions in the years ahead.

Getting to Net-Zero Carbon Emissions

Lawman’s Oil started to deliver B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel to our customers a few years ago. We did this because we’re committed to realistic green energy solutions that not only protect the environment but also enhance energy efficiency, savings, and comfort for all of our customers.

We work in conjunction with the heating oil industry, which is dedicated to achieving net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for heating oil by 2050. This means your heating fuel will eventually have a carbon footprint of zero.

Timeline for Reducing Carbon Emissions

Take a look at the impressive strides we can take in reducing carbon emissions by increasing biofuel blends. This is in accordance with the goals the heating oil industry set forth a few years ago.

  • 2023 – B20 by 2023 (20% biodiesel) results in a 14.6% reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • 2030 – B50 (50% biodiesel) eliminates 4.29 million metric tons of carbon.
  • 2050 – B100 (100% biodiesel) eliminates 8.59 million metric tons of carbon.

Tips for Saving Money on Heating Your Home

home efficiency tips new jerseyWith energy prices still unbelievably high and overall inflation rates draining cash from our pockets every day, most people are trying to save money wherever they can. One thing you can do is to use this time to examine ways to conserve on your heat next winter.

There are actually many small yet important energy conservation methods that can add up to impressive savings. Here is a closer look at some of the steps you can take to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Run Your Ceiling Fans in Reverse

Warm air rises, so if you have ceiling fans, especially in a part of your home that has high ceilings, run your fans in reverse to push the warm air down. This will keep your rooms more comfortable and will reduce your energy usage a bit too. It’s estimated that you can reduce your annual heating costs 2% by doing this.

Use a Smart Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats allow you to set your temperatures so that you aren’t wasting energy when you aren’t home or are asleep. Today’s smart thermostats can be controlled remotely, giving you greater control over your energy usage. This relatively inexpensive investment can potentially cut your energy usage by at least 5%–sometimes even more!

Keep It Clear

Clear any unnecessary items in front of your baseboards, radiators or vents. Whether there are pieces of furniture in the way, a too-thick rug, or assorted kids’ shoes and toys on the floor, you’ll want this area to be clear so you don’t block the flow of heat into your home. And for safety’s sake, keep the area around your heating system as clean and clutter-free as possible. Never store anything flammable (paint, household cleaners, etc.) anywhere near your system–or any other heating appliance.

Replace Your Heating Oil System

The most impactful action you can take is to replace your system with a new, higher efficiency heating oil furnace or heating oil boiler. While this will cost you the most, it will also save you the most. And depending on the age and condition of your current system, you may be able to cut your annual heating costs by 20% or more.

Make a Difference by Choosing Lawman’s Oil

If you’ve been relying on Lawman’s Oil for your fuel needs, you’re already saving money since we deliver only highly efficient, clean-burning B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel.

You are also joining us in the fight against cancer. We donate 1¢ of every gallon we sell to the American Breast Cancer Foundation, which helps those in need by providing mammograms, prevention and early-detection programs, and support during and after diagnosis.

Let’s keep that fight going until we win! Order fuel today and you’ll be all set when it’s time to turn your thermostat up again.

Take Comfort in Having Oil Heat

oilheating home new jerseyIt’s been a long time since we have seen such a dramatic rise in heating oil prices—although prices have been trending upward since the bottom dropped out of the energy markets at the start of the pandemic in the Spring of 2020.

First, it’s important to point out that for the most part, the price of oil has been fairly stable since 2014. But there have been a lot of changes over the past year or two that have upended the markets.

And it’s not limited to heating oil. Natural gas rates have doubled. Electricity costs are surging. And gasoline and propane have spiked skyward as well.

We don’t know where energy prices will go from here, but if history is a guide, we can expect to see heating oil prices drop pretty significantly in the not-too-distant future.

As we wait this out, please take some comfort in the fact that heating oil remains one of the most energy-efficient home heating sources available and much progress has been made in making heating oil a renewable, ultra-clean burning fuel.

Clean-burning B20 Bioheat Plus® Fuel

Lawman’s Oil delivers clean-burning B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel. Bioheat fuel is the industry’s official registered name for the fuel that consists of a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil with renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products. These products can range from soybean oil, used cooking oils, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and algae. Here are five other benefits:

  • Bioheat fuel has virtually no negative impact on the environment, producing near-zero levels of particulate matter during the combustion process.
  • Because of its super clean-burning properties, Bioheat eliminates the source of most equipment issues.
  • As the level of biofuels in Bioheat is increased in the coming years, home heating oil will move closer and closer to becoming a carbon-neutral fuel.
  • Bioheat fuel is made in the U.S., which helps supports local farmers, local industries and a local economy.
  • The high level of biofuel in our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel generates less greenhouse gas emissions than a natural gas system.

Heating Oil Is Remarkably Safe

While there are many reasons why people feel safe at home with oil heat, here are just four points to remember.

  1. Heating oil does not and cannot explode. Heating oil customers can be assured that the fuel stored in their tank is very safe.
  2. Heating oil is not a fire hazard. Heating oil cannot burn in its liquid state. Before combustion can occur, it must first be vaporized by your oil burner at temperatures above 140°.
  3. When you rely on heating oil equipment, there is an extremely low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If an oil burner malfunctions (most often this is due to a lack of maintenance), you will likely see smoke and the safety devices in the unit will typically shut the furnace or boiler off.
  4. Modern oil storage tanks are designed with corrosion-resistant materials, today’s tanks can last for decades. New technology allows for remote monitoring to protect against the rare event of a leak and guarantees that you will always have a sufficient supply of heating oil on hand.

Efficient Heating Oil Keeps Your Home Warm

Did you know that the flame in a heating oil system burns hundreds of degrees hotter than in other energy systems? This produces more heat and warmer air or water, which leads to more even heat throughout the house. So, when it’s 5° outside and the wind chill makes it seem even colder, that extra heat will help keep your home super cozy.
