The Truth About Bioheat Plus® Vs. Natural Gas

heating oil vs natural gas pennsylvaniaNatural gas has gotten some great press in recent years as an efficient and green fuel – especially when compared to heating oil. But is natural gas really a better home heating option for money- and eco-conscious Pennsylvania homeowners?

Not at all!

The fact is that when it comes to keeping you warm while protecting the planet, today’s Bioheat® heating oil is the clean-burning winner.

What Is Bioheat?

Major advances in technology have flipped the script on heating oil in recent years, and today it’s one of the cleanest fuels around. That’s especially true of Bioheat – an American-made heating oil blend made from a combination of ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and renewable fatty acids found in vegetable oils, animal fats, recycled restaurant oils and other natural sources.

Bioheat oil is a game-changer for your Pennsylvania home, your heating equipment, your neighborhood, the planet, and even our country. Check out these facts:

Best of all, Bioheat costs the same as standard heating oil, and you don’t need to modify your oil-fired equipment to use it. Just fill your tank you’re good to go!

Is Heating Oil Really Better Than Natural Gas?
