Celebrating Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil in NY
Back in July of 2018, heating oil sold throughout New York became what is known as ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO). This improved home heating fuel contains fewer parts per million (ppm) of sulfur content than its predecessor, low sulfur heating oil, which contained at most 500 ppm of sulfur. ULSHO brings the acceptable amount of sulfur content in heating oil down to no more than 15 ppm.
This significant drop in sulfur content brings many benefits to homeowners throughout New York!
- Sulfur buildup is a common cause of equipment breakdowns. Using ULSHO helps your heating equipment last longer and require less maintenance.
- ULSHO reduces emissions by over 70 percent compared to traditional heating fuel, according to the Consumer Energy Council of America. Using ULSHO increases your heating system’s efficiency!
- You don’t need to make any modifications to your heating system. ULSHO can be used in your existing home heating equipment, and mixed with any fuel left in your tank.
- The cleanliness of home heating fuel can be taken a step further by combining ULSHO with biodiesel, to create an even cleaner burning Bioheat® fuel. ULSHO helps homeowners go green!
In addition to these benefits to your home heating system, ULSHO can be delivered using Glider Oil’s automatic delivery service!
