If you’re looking for ways to reduce your usage of non-renewable energy sources, John Ray & Sons offers Bioheat – the alternative to conventional heating oil that makes a difference.
John Ray & Sons was the first local company to offer Bioheat to our customers.
Bioheat is efficient. Safe. Proven. Less polluting. And will warm you up — with less warming to the environment.
Bioheat has a successful track record and offers the same performance as heating oil derived solely from petroleum sources, but burns more cleanly, reducing smoke, sulfur, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions. Bioheat is biodegradable, nontoxic, and renewable. And it’s already the fuel of choice for homes, schools, and other facilities throughout the Northeast.
Any heating appliance will accept the changeover to bioheat fuel without modification. And, since it’s naturally lubricating, bioheat fuel is gentle on your heating system.
Our bioheat fuel is a B5 blend of 5% soybean oil, a biodegradable oil made from the soybean crops grown in the United States, and 95% petroleum-based home heating oil. By using it, you reduce our dependency on foreign oil and support U.S. agriculture.
If everyone using heating oil switched to a B5 Bioheat blend, 400 million gallons of regular heating oil could be saved, conserving oil and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Because we perceived a growing demand for this environmentally cleaner fuel, we established a reliable source to meet our customers’ needs.
