Bioheat®: Fact or Fiction?

You’ve heard us talking about Bioheat® fuel quite a bit, but just how much do you know about the eco-friendly, renewable Bioheat® fuel blend that’s fueling many homes across Upstate New York this winter? Take our Fact or Fiction quiz to find out.

Bioheat® Fuel Is Safe


Unlike other heating fuels, Bioheat® fuel is a non-explosive fuel. In fact, it’s very difficult to even ignite. Plus, should your heating system malfunction for any reason, Bioheat® fuel will produce detectable odors and smoke to alert you of a problem. It’s a safe option for any home or business.

Bioheat® Fuel May Harm Your Heating Equipment


Bioheat® fuel has been tested by major equipment manufacturers to ensure the fuel can be supported with their equipment. In addition, the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) carried out their own evaluation and concluded that there is no adverse effect with the current blend guidelines.

Bioheat® fuel Is Expensive


Bioheat® fuel costs are similar to traditional home fuel costs. What’s more, Bioheat® fuel helps your system to operate more efficiently, which in turn can save you money on your home heating bills. As a New York resident, you can also benefit from state tax credits when you fuel your home with Bioheat® fuel.

Bioheat® Fuel Is Produced Domestically


Bioheat® fuel is made from agricultural and recycled resources that are sourced right here in the U.S., allowing us to reduce our dependency on foreign fuel. It has also created thousands of production jobs for Americans across the country. And because the Bioheat® fuel industry is focused on continuing to produce eco-friendly fuels, job growth in both production and other related industry sectors will only continue.
