What do you imagine when you think of heating oil? For many people, the image that comes to mind is the fuel their grandparents used. Maybe they remember the black smoke and soot that it could produce when burned.
The households in Essex, Passaic, Union and Bergen Counties that JW Pierson Co. serves know that today’s heating oil is cleaner, more sustainable and easier on heating systems than ever before. That’s because they receive Bioheat fuel.
Bioheat fuel is a heating fuel that blends ultra-low sulfur heating oil and organic biofuel.
The heating oil component of Bioheat fuel contains 99 percent less sulfur than the oil of decades ago. Biofuel is a one-to-one replacement for petroleum, produced using renewable feedstocks. These include plant matter, animal fats, inedible corn oil, soybean oil, algae and even the used cooking oil from restaurants!
Bioheat fuel is one of the most effective tools for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Consider these facts:
And biofuel production diverts food wastes away from landfills, putting them to good use, sustainably heating homes!
In the debate about how best to reduce the negative effects of climate change, many potential solutions are promoted. Bioheat fuel is available today. It’s already used in countless homes in New Jersey and nationwide, warming families in an environmentally responsible manner.
You can use Bioheat fuel in any oil-fired heating and hot water equipment. No modifications are necessary. And you don’t sacrifice comfort with an eco-friendlier fuel. Bioheat fuel produces the same powerful heat as traditional heating oil. You can count on this green fuel to keep your home toasty warm.
What do you lose with Bioheat fuel? Wear and tear on your equipment! Since it burns cleaner, it leaves fewer deposits in your heat exchanger. This reduces the need for frequent cleanings, lowers the risk of breakdowns and extends your system’s life expectancy.
At JW Pierson Co., we want you to be proud of the fuel you use to heat your home. That’s why our heating oil delivery customers receive Bioheat fuel from us.
To us, Bioheat fuel is a no-brainer. It’s similar in price to traditional heating oil, but it’s better for the planet and our customers’ home heating systems. Plus, the biofuel that goes into this blend is U.S.-made. Using Bioheat fuel supports American farmers and fuel producers.
When you become a Pierson customer, you can get clean-burning, efficient Bioheat fuel for your home. Reach out to us today to get started!
