Exploring the Advantages of Bioheat® Fuel on Earth Day

Earth Day is April 22nd, and at Woolley Home Solutions, we’re always thinking about the most effective ways to shrink our carbon footprint. Lowering our environmental impact is a huge concern of ours and has been for years now, dating all the way back to 2008 when we opened the first public retail biodiesel station in the state of New Jersey. That station is still open today, and we haven’t lost our passion for taking bold steps toward a greener world. Read this blog post to discover the reasons why we love Bioheat® fuel, and how it is a clean, renewable, and eco-friendly energy source that is only going to get better with time.

Top 4 Reasons Why Woolley Loves Low-Carbon Bioheat® Fuel

1. Bioheat® Fuel Is Safe & Renewable

Bioheat® fuel is a blend of biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating fuel and is renewable because the biodiesel used to make it comes from a diverse variety of renewable resources. This liquid heating fuel is a nontoxic, biodegradable, nonexplosive option that produces fewer emissions.

2. Bioheat® Fuel Provides a Cleaner, More Efficient Burn

Bioheat® fuel reduces carbon emissions and particulate matter in the air, meaning it’s better for the environment and your heating equipment. Not only that, but US biodiesel reduces carbon emissions by an average of 80% compared to petroleum fuel oil. Biodiesel outputs 5.54 units of renewable energy for every one unit of fossil energy needed to produce it. This energy-in, energy-out ratio is called “energy balance.” This high rate makes it the best carbon-reduction tool of any liquid fuel in the country.

3. Bioheat® Fuel Doesn’t Require Equipment Modifications to Use

Bioheat® can be used in today’s high-efficiency heating oil equipment without modification, making it the only available fuel that offers decarbonization without conversion.

4. Bioheat® Fuel Supports Local Jobs & Businesses

The Bioheat® fuel industry supports more than 70,000 jobs in the US, and Bioheat® fuel is delivered by local, multigenerational family businesses that employ members of their communities—like Woolley Home Solutions!
