If you’re searching for a renewable energy option for your home, often the final decision comes down to cost. It makes sense; there are more clean fuel alternatives out there than ever before, but it all boils down to what works for your budget. Bioheat® fuel is one of the most affordable renewable heating fuels available because it doesn’t require any additional costs to convert. How do those savings stack up? Read on to get the run down on Bioheat® fuel and the cost savings that comes with it.
No Need to Spend on Heating System Conversions
The first major factor in Bioheat® fuel’s affordability is the fact that it is compatible with existing heating systems. You heard right! You don’t have to splurge for new equipment or modify your home to start using Bioheat® fuel.
Long-Term Savings with High-Efficiency Equipment
Your Bioheat® fuel is made by blending heating fuel with renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from a variety of readily available feedstocks. All these feedstocks are waste products or by-products of existing food supply lines, reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly. Because a variety of surplus feedstocks are used, biodiesel and renewable diesel achieve emissions reductions of at least 50% compared to petroleum diesel, which means cleaner air and significant health benefits.
Manageable Heating Bills
Bioheat® fuel is competitively priced per gallon, comparable to other liquid heating fuels on the market. Market prices can vary, so it’s a good idea to check with your heating provider to see if they offer any prompt-pay discounts or payment plan options. Most local heating companies offer payment programs that allow customers to spread annual heating costs into smaller, even monthly payments throughout the year to make heating bills easier to manage.
