Knowing more about today’s oil heat in Massachusetts will make you feel good about how you heat your home—now and well into the future. That’s why it’s important for you to know that with every passing year, heating oil continues its evolution into a newer, cleaner and more efficient fuel.

One of the biggest transitions in heating oil has been the move toward ultra-low sulfur heating oil. This refined fuel lowers maintenance, improves efficiency and reduces emissions from heating systems. Additionally, cleaner burning fuel has also paved the way for the next generation of compact, super-efficient boilers and furnaces.

Many gallons of heating oil also include Bioheat®, a blend of heating oil and renewable materials like vegetable oils. Because Bioheat integrates seamlessly with all heating oil systems, much of the heating oil sold in Massachusetts is already Bioheat. For anyone who wants to use Bioheat, no changes to your existing heating system are necessary!

This is only the beginning. The quality of heating oil will get even better in the years ahead. Soon, homes that heat with oil could be using even cleaner burning blends.

The oilheat industry is excited by these new opportunities because they will positively influence the long term future of the industry and the environment while uplifting the oil heat experience for millions of customers.
