Warm up to Biofuel® heating oil delivery to the North Fork and the East End
When it comes to heating oil, a lot has changed in recent years. Burt’s Reliable remains firmly committed to providing green energy solutions that not only are better for the planet, but also save you money on heating oil pricing while keeping your North Fork home warm and comfortable.
Cleaner and greener
Burt’s Reliable still remains the only heating oil company on the North Fork that delivers ultra-low-sulfur Natural Heating Oil® (also known as Bioheat®) with a B20 biofuel blend.
Bioheat is the industry’s official registered name for the fuel that consists of a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products, including soybean oil, used cooking oils, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and algae.
These renewable products are defined as feedstock for producing biodiesel. Heating oil blends are designated by the percentage of biodiesel they contain. For example, heating oil that is 5% biodiesel is called B5. B10 refers to a 10% blend, while B20 is a 20% blend.
While other companies have only a 2% or 3% blend of biofuel, our higher blend—20%—burns more cleanly than natural gas, with fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Another great thing about Bioheat is that you don’t have to modify your existing oil heating system to use it. And many manufacturers allow biofuel heating oil under their home heating system warranties.
Save some green
Using Bioheat saves you on heating oil pricing in the North Fork in several ways.
First, Bioheat improves your heating system’s efficiency, meaning that you can use less and save on your energy bills.
Second, it helps extend your equipment’s life, meaning that you may have longer before you have to replace your heating system.
Third, it reduces service calls, which also saves you money.
Get a tax break
You can take advantage of New York State’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by the year 2030.
In order to meet that goal, the state is encouraging heating oil consumers to use clean-burning fuels like our Natural Heating Oil. That’s why it is providing a 20¢-per-gallon credit on your New York State income taxes.
Burt’s Reliable customers who use 750 gallons of our Natural Heating Oil can qualify for a $150 credit at tax time with the Clean Fuel Credit.
We help you by sending you an annual usage statement, including delivery dates and the amount of Natural Heating Oil you had delivered, so that you can apply for the credit.
