What Is Bioheat Plus® Fuel?
Bioheat® fuel is an eco-friendly fuel that is compatible with traditional heating equipment and used in place of standard #2 heating oil. It’s made by blending ultra-low sulfur heating oil with biodiesel to create a low-carbon liquid heating fuel that produces fewer emissions. The fuel you receive from Densmore is called Bioheat Plus® fuel because it has 20% biodiesel content. Blends of Bioheat® fuel with higher biodiesel content, like ours, produce even fewer emissions and provide more benefits for our environment.
What Are the Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel?
When you heat your home with Bioheat® fuel you can feel good about filling up your tank. It is comparably priced to other liquid heating fuels on the market and requires no expensive equipment upgrades, so you can use it in your existing oil heating equipment! There are many reasons why homeowners and business owners prefer to heat with Bioheat® fuel:
- Produces fewer emissions
- Improves the operation of your heating system
- Extends the life of your heating equipment
- Runs more efficiently, which means reducing fuel consumption
- Compatible with your existing heating equipment
- Conserves more gallons annually than traditional heating oil
Every fuel delivery from Densmore is a Bioheat Plus® fuel delivery!
Automatic Fuel Delivery
Take one thing off your to-do list by signing up for automatic fuel delivery with Densmore. Our experts will monitor your account, tracking usage history and degree days to accurately estimate when you’re due for a delivery. You can skip the stress of constantly checking your fuel tank and minimize the risk of running out of fuel.
If you prefer to monitor your fuel usage on your own, will-call delivery is a great choice. We recommend that customers check their fuel tanks regularly and request a fuel delivery from Densmore before their tank reaches ¼ full. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to request and receive your order before your tank gets too low.
