Do I Need New Equipment To Use Bioheat?
If you think the “heating oil” Frank Lamparelli delivers today is the same kind we delivered to homes in your parents’ and grandparents’ day, you’re in for a real surprise. Thanks to advances in the heating oil industry, Frank Lamparelli only delivers Bioheat®, a cleaner, greener fuel for the 21st century!
What is Bioheat?
Bioheat is a revolutionary home heating fuel. What is it exactly? It is a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and biodiesels.
Ultra-low-sulfur heating oil, commonly called by its acronym ULSHO, on its own is light years ahead of traditional heating oil. It reduces emissions of sulfur dioxide by 75%, particulate matter by 80%, and carbon dioxide by 2%.
Biodiesels are made with renewable resources including plant-based oils (including corn, soy, rapeseed, and canola), recycled restaurant cooking grease, animal fats, and algae. Combine ULSHO and biodiesels, and you have heating oil that will reduce your carbon footprint and make you proud to heat your home with it!
Frank Lamparelli’s Bioheat is a B20 blend. That means 20% of our Bioheat is comprised of biodiesel. With that high an amount of biodiesel, our bioheat burns even cleaner than natural gas!
Massachusetts is one of the leaders at the forefront of using Bioheat. We choose to only deliver Bioheat to our customers because we not only care about you, but we care about our communities and the Massachusetts environment as a whole.
Bioheat and your home’s heating system
So, getting back to the question at hand. Do you need to add new equipment or replace your current furnace or boiler to use Bioheat in your South Shore home?
Bioheat not only works completely fine with your current oil heating system, it actually is better for it! Because Bioheat leaves so few (nearly zero) deposits on heat exchangers as it is burned for heating, your furnace or boiler experiences less wear and tear. This decreases the chances of breakdowns and repairs, while helping prolong the shelf life of your heating system.
But if you do need a new heating system, due to it being outdated, experiencing troubles, or anything else, our trained and experienced equipment professionals can help you choose the right one for your home, and install it, too!
