If you have a well-functioning oil boiler or oil furnace, you know that it does a great job at keeping your home warm and comfortable throughout the winter, no matter how low temperatures go. Heating oil systems actually get your home warm faster than any other fuel because of heating oil’s high BTU content.
You may have been hearing a lot about biofuels being added to heating oil and wondering about the impact this has on your oil boiler or oil furnace. Lawman’s Oil only delivers B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel and it is an absolute game-changer when it comes to heating your home, saving you money and helping the environment.
Bioheat fuel 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 including soybean and sunflower. 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.
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 boiler or 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 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.
