Keep your Seattle home warm and cozy with Bioheat
A greener and cleaner fuel source
Looking for a way to heat your home this winter, while reducing your carbon footprint? Bioheat is a clean, renewable energy source that reduces air pollution, burns cleaner than petroleum or natural gas, extends the life of your furnace, and reduces U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources.
Your Seattle home will be warm and cozy with Bioheat, just as if you were using standard heating oil. But your carbon emissions will be lower, and you’ll feel better about helping to protect the environment.
What is Bioheat?
Bioheat is a blend of ultra-low sulfur petroleum and biodiesel – a biofuel made from soybean oil, used cooking grease, and other domestic, renewable resources. Bioheat is safe to use, is less toxic than salt, and biodegrades as fast as sugar.
Use the Furnace You Have Now
There’s no need to buy a new furnace when you switch to Bioheat, or to modify your existing oil furnace. Bioheat blends with the fuel you have in your tank now. The biodiesel in Bioheat acts as a cleaning agent for your filters, and can even help to extend the life of your furnace.
Lower Your Emissions
We offer Bioheat in 25%, 50%, and 99% biodiesel blends. The higher the blend, the lower your carbon emissions are. Compared to natural gas, Bioheat produces lower air emissions in pounds per million BTU of fuel.
We recommend you start with 25%, and work your way up to 99%, our cleanest blend. A 25% blend strikes a good balance between lower maintenance costs and reducing your carbon footprint, and won’t put too much stress on your furnace filters.
Bioheat currently costs a few pennies more per gallon than regular heating oil, but the price will go down in the next decade, as biofuel use becomes more widespread. Also, since Bioheat is made in the USA, it is less susceptible to price fluctuations than standard oil that is purchased overseas.
