Benefits of Heating with Oil

Did you know that all heating oil delivered by Snow’s Fuel Company is Bioheat® fuel? Bioheat® fuel is ultra-low sulfur heating oil blended with renewable biodiesel, which is produced from local agricultural oils that would otherwise be discarded. We provide this low-carbon energy option to our oil customers on Cape Cod to provide a lower-emission environment for our kids and grandkids. As energy options continue to diversify, we’d like to remind our Bioheat® fuel customers why we still highly recommend this energy source for your home heating needs:

Home Safety

Bioheat® fuel (and all heating oil) is nonexplosive, so you can rest easy each winter knowing that you are heating your home with a safe, reliable, and efficient fuel provided by a local company you can trust. According to the American Energy Coalition, heating oil is the best choice when it comes to safety. Plus, Snow’s is always here to help if you are experiencing a lack of heat. Simply give us a call.


Environmental Advances

The heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 33% over the last four decades. This means you can feel good knowing that the fuel you use to heat your home is steadily becoming more and more environmentally friendly. On the other hand, natural gas utilities routinely tolerate leaks of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Plus, the addition of biodiesel to heating oil provides even more bonuses for your Cape Cod home and family:

  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Sustainable, domestic production
  • Compatibility with current oil heat systems
  • No expensive conversions

Financial Savings

Converting to another fuel source like natural gas can cost more than $10,000 in parts and labor, while upgrading your current boiler or furnace can save you up to 30% on your annual fuel bills. Staying with oil heat is a smart choice for more than its high-efficiency heating equipment; the market price continues to remain steadily low for Massachusetts residents.

Overall Value

As an oil customer, you can choose which local company delivers your fuel and services your equipment. Unlike major utilities, we at Snow’s Fuel Company are available to assist you at any time and in any weather.
