Just How Efficient Is Oil Heat For Your Home?
Get Comfort and Efficiency with Bioheat® from Frank Lamparelli!
Some outdated ideas stick around a bit longer than they should. One of those is that oil heat is somehow inefficient because it’s “dirty”. Another is that natural gas is “clean,” and increasingly efficient.
To put it simply, today’s heating oil isn’t what it was a few decades back. The heating oil that Frank Lamparelli delivers is cleaner burning, more environmentally friendly, and has dramatically improved efficiency in household heating systems.
In fact, the heating oil industry has set a goal to be carbon neutral by the year 2050. One way the industry is working towards that goal is with the development of ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO)/biodiesel blends known as Bioheat®.
What Are Biodiesel Fuels?
Biodiesels are made from renewable resources like plant oils such as soybean and rapeseed, recycled restaurant cooking oils and greases, and algae. The Bioheat delivered by Frank Lamparelli contains up to 20% biodiesels, making it directly comparable to natural gas when it comes to clean burning!
Bioheat is also much more environmentally friendly than traditional heating oil, as particulate emissions are reduced by 99% and nitrous oxide emissions by 30%.
How Efficient is Bioheat?
This is where Bioheat is a game-changer. While reduced greenhouse gas emissions are increasingly great, Bioheat produces positive results that impact your home, your comfort, and your wallet.
Advances in technology have made today’s oil-fired furnaces and boilers incredibly efficient, reaching efficiencies as high as 98%. That means for every dollar you spend on heating oil, 98 cents of it goes into heating your home and only 2 cents are lost in the combustion process. Older furnaces and boilers—those around twenty years old or greater—can have efficiencies as low as about 60%, meaning 40 cents of every dollar you spend on heating oil is wasted.
Combine that with Bioheat’s clean burning, and your monthly and seasonal heating costs can fall dramatically.
Another way Bioheat can save you money is that it leaves fewer deposits on heat registers, reducing wear on the parts in your furnace or boiler. This reduction in wear and tear can help prevent breakdowns, leave you with fewer repair costs, and increase the overall life expectancy for your home’s heating system!
