Tomorrow's fuel will be Bioheat® fuel, a blend of Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil and renewable biodiesel.
The ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) has already determined that Bioheat® fuel blends of up to 5 percent (B5) can be used in all Oilheat systems with no modifications needed whatsoever.
There are new ASTM standards for next generation Oilheat systems to use B6 – B20.
New York State offers tax credits up to $0.20 per gallon for anyone using Bioheat® with blends between 6 percent and 20 percent renewable biodiesel. Download form IT-241 and speak with your local Oilheat dealer for more information. Please review all documentation with your tax professional.
Advanced heat exchanger designs transfer more heat in your boiler or furnace, making the system more efficient and lowering your heating bills.
Some of the boilers with the highest efficiencies use condensing technology to capture heat that might otherwise be lost in exhaust gases.
Smart controls modulate the heat output for your equipment according to the outdoor temperature.
Remote monitors communicate with your heating oil company to alert them of system problems, low fuel levels, low home temperatures, and more. They even provide data for the dealer to diagnose the problem before the technician even leaves the office!
Smart thermostats connect your heating system with the rest of your smart home, and learn your home's heating schedule.
