The theme of this year’s Earth Day (April 22) is “Climate Action” – which is good news if you’re a Burt’s Reliable heating oil customer, since that you’re taking action for the climate every time you fill your heating oil tank.
That’s because every gallon of heating oil you buy from Burt’s is Natural Heating Oil® – also known as Bioheat.®
Natural Heating Oil – a blended heating oil made from a combination of ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and renewable fatty acids found in vegetable oils, animal fats, recycled restaurant oils and other natural sources – burns so cleanly that it outperforms natural gas in its emissions profile, according to the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Burt’s Reliable the only heating oil company on the North Fork that delivers a low-sulfur B20 biofuel blend, which contains 20 percent renewable biodiesel fuel; other companies typically use a much weaker biofuel blends.
Eco-friendly B20 Bioheat fuel is good for your home, your heating equipment, your neighborhood, and the country.
Check out these Bioheat facts:
- Although Bioheat costs slightly more than No. 2 heating oil, it saves you money as a NY State resident because you can apply for a 20¢-per-gallon Clean Fuel Credit on your state income taxes. And because Bioheat burns cleaner than regular heating oil, you’ll also spend less on heating equipment repairs and go longer between heating equipment installations.
- Bioheat fuel promotes better air quality because it reduces emissions; it burns so cleanly, in fact, that Bioheat-fired equipment is not even regulated under amendments of the Federal Clean Air Act.
- Bioheat is grown and processed domestically, which creates jobs and promotes our energy independence.
Best of all, you can use Bioheat oil without making any modifications to your heating equipment – just schedule a fuel delivery from Burt’s to start enjoying these great benefits for Earth Day and beyond.
