Benefits of BioHeat®

If every American home made the switch to a B5 blend of Bioheat®, it would reduce the dependency on petroleum consumption by up to 500 million gallons.

Family Danz Bioheat is a biodegradable and non-toxic biodiesel fuel used for heating, and B5 is the particular blend of that fuel, following formulas B1 through B4. It is essentially free of sulfur and other impurities, making it better for the environment than more traditional fuels. Biodiesel also reduces the energy needed to bring the fuel to the consumer, in turn lessening the carbon dioxide impact by some 78 percent and reducing the effects of global warming.

But the concept of biofuels is nothing new. The official website recalls that when Rudolph Diesel exhibited his engine at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, he used peanut oil for a fuel. It was only later that petroleum and toxic additives were added to the mix, leading to the Environmental Protection Agency’s passage of the 1970 Clean Air Act to regulate emissions of pollutants like carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxides, and nitrogen oxides.

A recent economic study commissioned by the National Biodiesel Board discovered that a biodiesel production of 1 billion gallons in turn supports the workers in 39,027 jobs across the United States and adds more than $2.1 billion to American household incomes. And under the continued growth of the Renewable Fuel Standard plus an extension of the biodiesel tax incentive, an extra 11,698 jobs may be added through the end of 2013.

Bioheat is good for your home because it adds efficiency while at the same time leaving cleaner indoor air without ever having to change your equipment. The traditional heating oil causes soot and other emissions that are harmful to breathe in as well as being likely to cause a lack of efficiency, if not damage, to the furnace thanks to the buildup.

Without the sulfur and hydrocarbon impurities, biodiesel burns more cleanly — and Bioheat actually acts as both a cleaning agent and a lubricant to help furnaces run at their peak performance levels.
