Common questions that homeowners have about Bioheat®:
“What are the advantages of bioheat®?”
Bioheat® is safe. Bioheat® provides a cleaner, more complete and energy efficient burn than traditional heating oil alone. As a renewable source, it releases less toxic emissions; it is biodegradable and is suitable for sensitive environments.
Bioheat® may actually extend the life of your heating equipment. It may also reduce how often your heating system needs periodic maintenance. Bioheat® is also made here in the United States and further reduces America’s dependence on foreign oil and creates jobs here at home.
When used, Bioheat® will dissolve sludge in the boiler left by past fuels. Once dissolved, the boiler should be running smoother and more efficient. The use of Bioheat® in boilers does not have any of the cold weather limitations associated with vehicular biodiesel, so when you need it most, your boiler will be running how it should be.
“What modifications will need to be made to my heating system?”
NONE. When you receive a delivery from us of a B-2 to B-5 blend of bioheat®, the performance and properties are the same as the current fuel we deliver. The industries manufacturers stand by their warranties with its use.
“How much does Bioheat® cost?”
There is no additional cost for Bioheat®. It is delivered at the same price as our traditional heating oil.
“How do I get Bioheat® from Tragar Energy?”
You do not have to ask for it. We delivery Bioheat® automatically.
