Types of Heating Fuel
Modern heating oil systems provide a clean, safe, and environmentally friendly means to efficiently heat a
home or business. New technology has made heating oil one of the most highly-efficient, low emissions ways
to ensure warmth, safety, and comfort. Modern heating oil systems can offer efficiencies from 83% to 95%.
Propane / LP-Gas
Propane (sometimes referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LP-gas, or LPG) is produced from natural gas
processing and crude oil refining. Most propane used in the US is produced domestically. Propane is a highly
versatile fuel that can be used to heat a home or business, run appliances, provide hot water and run a
generator for electricity. Modern propane boilers and heaters offer efficiencies above 90%.
Biomass fuel includes products such as wood pellets and BioBlocks. Wood pellets are made from compressed
wood chips and sawdust, often left over from the production of lumber for construction. They can be used
in pellet stoves and boilers to provide heat and hot water. BioBlocks are environmentally friendly blocks
made from compressed hardwood waste and are designed to replace traditional firewood. Both wood pellets
and BioBlocks offer the warm, cozy heat of firewood without the extra steps of cutting, splitting, and stacking.
