Heating oil has changed!

Heating oil has often gotten a bad rap in terms of being seen as somehow “dirty.” But, thanks to technological innovations and advancements, today’s heating oil isn’t the same as it was a generation or two ago.

One of the biggest changes was the introduction of ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO). Since 2018, all heating oil delivered in Massachusetts has been required to meet ULSHO standards of 15 parts per million (PPM) or less sulfur content. Traditional No. 2 heating oil contains an average of 4,000 ppm.
This more than 99% reduction in sulfur in heating oil has led to greenhouse gas emissions being reduced by 70%.

This is just the beginning of the benefits of getting your commercial heating oil from Pioneer Oil and Propane. That’s because we only deliver Bioheat® Fuel, a blend of ULSHO and biodiesels, which are made from natural and renewable resources including:

This creates a fuel that is not only better for the planet but better for your business! That’s because Bioheat Fuel’s cleaner burning makes your commercial heating system run more efficiently, cutting your heating costs. The dramatic reduction of sulfur plus the biodiesels also causes less wear on parts so repair costs and the costs that come with potential downtime are reduced.

Heating oil’s advantages for your business

Oil-fired heating systems provide numerous benefits that other energy sources lack. Oil-fired furnaces and boilers, for example, can heat your spaces faster than any other energy source, including natural gas. They are also durable, easy to maintain and repair, while providing efficiencies of 95% or higher. That means almost every penny your business spends on heating oil goes toward heating rather than being lost in combustion.
 
Not only are oil-fired furnaces and boilers effective, but they also last a long time. With proper maintenance, these systems typically have a lifespan of 30 years. Comparatively, natural gas-fired furnaces and boilers fall short with an average life expectancy of 11 to 14 years.

If you’re trying to heat a large space such as a manufacturing plant, warehouse, retail store, or distribution center, using heating oil can save you a lot of money!
