The combination of continually improving ultra-low-sulfur Bioheat® fuel with increasingly efficient heating oil systems is the one-two punch that will help homeowners with oilheat save significant amounts of money on their heating bills now and in the years to come. In addition, innovations like EL 100, made from wood waste, will keep Maine ahead of the curve on the path to a carbon-neutral future.
Learn more about how clean heating oil is…and how clean it will be in the future! In addition to being a cleaner fuel, heating oil is a very safe fuel, which many new homeowners—and potential homeowners—don’t realize. As you get to know this reliable fuel, it will also be helpful to have an understanding of how heating oil pricing and projections work.
If you’ve thought about switching fuels rather than upgrading, consider this: Recently, leaders of a number of Maine’s local heating oil companies were among the more than 300 participants from the Northeast’s heating oil industry who unanimously passed a resolution to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for heating oil by 2050. This means that your oilheat will have a carbon footprint of zero.
Heating oil companies in Maine are already delivering renewable liquid heating fuels, and this resolution illustrates their ongoing commitment to helping protect the environment and ensuring a sustainable future.
Speak with your local oilheat dealer and you may be amazed by all of the modern innovations in oil heating equipment. It’s vastly different than it was just a generation ago, when your parents may have relied on an old boiler that had been converted from coal to oil.
Oil-fired water heaters provide unlimited low-cost hot water. Not only does an oil water heater save homeowners a substantial amount of money over its lifetime, it is also perfect for homes with a high demand for hot water.
