BENEFITS OF HEATING OIL

Heating oil has undergone an incredible transformation over the last few years. In fact, today’s oil burns as cleanly, if not cleaner, than natural gas. It’s called Bioheat®. And it’s the oil you have been using to heat your home for years.

Simply put, Bioheat is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil with renewable resources such as plant oils and recycled grease. Gault Energy & Home Solutions is proud to deliver Bioheat to all of our customers.

Bioheat is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating fuel with biodiesel, a domestic, sustainable heating oil replacement.
Biodiesel is a heating oil replacement that is produced from a variety of renewable resources, such as plant oils, animal fats, recycled grease, and even algae, making it one of the most sustainable fuels on the planet. Annually, it generates approximately $16.8 billion dollars for the U.S. economy and creates more than 62,000 jobs.
The crops used to create Bioheat® are grown in United States and it is blended right here in Connecticut. The blends currently range from B5 fuel containing 5% plant content to B20, which contains 20%.
Yes! Bioheat is cleaner than natural gas. In a 20 year atmospheric lifecycle analysis, emissions of greenhouse gases from bioheat have been proven to be lower than those from natural gas.*
No, in fact Bioheat can save you money because it helps your heating equipment run more efficiently which prevents costly breakdowns and can lead to fewer tune-ups.
