A Great Choice for Your Home

bioheat massachusettsAs someone who uses heating oil in your southeastern Massachusetts home, you probably already know some of the benefits it offers you. Heating oil is a safe and efficient way to heat your home. The heating oil W.H. Riley & Son delivers to our customers is even better. It offers many advantages over traditional heating oil. Let’s learn more about the benefits of heating oil and Bioheat Plus fuel specifically.

Why Choose Heating Oil?

Here are some of the benefits heating oil offers:

  • It’s safe. Heating oil only becomes combustible once it’s been vaporized by an oil burner at a temperature above 140° Fahrenheit. Additionally, your furnace or boiler is equipped with safety devices that will shut it down if there’s a malfunction to prevent a carbon monoxide buildup putting your household at risk.
  • It’s clean. Bioheat Plus fuel is the industry’s official name for fuel that contains a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products. That’s the heating oil W.H. Riley delivers to all our customers. It burns more cleanly that regular heating oil.
  • It’s efficient. Modern oil heat systems can be up to 95% efficient. Heating oil burns up to 20% more efficiently than gas. It’s also 30% more efficient than electricity.
  • It’s good for your system. The premium heating oil W.H. Riley delivers helps keep your heating system running cleaner, and that can improve its longevity and cost you less in repairs.

Bioheat Plus® Fuel

Bioheat Plus fuel is made in America and consists of a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products. These products include soybean oil, used cooking oils, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and algae. Bioheat Plus® fuel is the name used for blends that range from 6% to 20% biodiesel.

W.H. Riley is proud to deliver Bioheat Plus fuel to our heating oil customers. This fuel offers a number of advantages over traditional heating oil. Bioheat Plus® fuel burns more cleanly than traditional heating oil. That’s good for the environment and saves you money on the cost to heat your southeastern Massachusetts home. Plus, not only will your heating system function more efficiently, it will last longer and require fewer repairs.

Bioheat Plus fuel’s benefit to the environment is measurable. Compared to traditional heating oil, it reduces greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 86%. Companies across the country are transitioning to higher levels of Bioheat Plus fuel. As this trend continues, heating oil will move closer to being carbon neutral, and as a result, we’ll see a reduction in its carbon footprint.
