Keep your Burien home warm and cozy with Bioheat
A greener, cleaner fuel source
Are you looking for greener and cleaner ways to heat your home? Maybe you’ve heard about biodiesel, and you’re wondering if it’s the best alternative fuel option for your oil-burning furnace. If so, you’ll want to read these five reasons to use Bioheat:
- Bioheat keeps your home snug and warm in the winter.
Bioheat is clean-burning, renewable energy source. With Bioheat, you get the same cozy, warm feeling in your Burien home that you get using regular heating oil. At the same time, you’ll feel better about doing your part to help reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases, and thus protect the environment.
- Bioheat lowers your carbon emissions.
Bioheat is a blend of petroleum and biodiesel, an alternative fuel made from natural resources. This makes Bioheat the most environmentally friendly heating fuel available. Compared to natural gas, Bioheat burns cleaner, and produces fewer carbon outputs in pounds per million BTU of fuel.
Genesee Energy offers Bioheat in 25%, 50%, and 99% biodiesel blends. The higher the blend, the lower your carbon emissions are. (We recommend you start with our 25% biodiesel blend and work your way up to 99% biodiesel, so we don’t put too much stress on your furnace all at once.)
- Bioheat is made right here in Washington state.
The biodiesel in Genesee Bioheat blends are made from recycled cooking oil, collected from thousands of Seattle-area restaurants. Since Bioheat is locally-made, using it in your home helps to reduce American dependence on foreign oil sources, which also helps to reduce our national trade deficit.
- Bioheat makes your furnace last longer.
You can use Bioheat with your existing furnace – no need to buy a new one, or make any upgrades. The biodiesel in Bioheat blends seamlessly with the standard fuel in your storage tank. Also, Bioheat acts as a cleaning agent for your filters, increasing lubricity and helping to keep your furnace in working order. Using Bioheat can extend the life of your furnace equipment, reduce maintenance problems, and save you money on repair bills in the long run.
- Bioheat is the heating oil of the future.
At this time, Bioheat costs a few pennies more per gallon than regular fuel oil. But the price is expected to go down over the next decade as more refineries begin making biodiesel, and more people start using it in their homes. Since Bioheat is made in the USA, it is less prone to sudden price hikes than heating fuel made with oil that is purchased from overseas suppliers.
