Fast Facts About Devine Bros. BioHeat

If you live in Fairfield County, Connecticut, chances are you will be relying on heating oil to keep warm this winter. Heating oil is a popular fuel choice for homeowners across New England, but it does come at a cost.

Since most heating oil is imported, we are reliant on foreign countries for our supply, and must have to deal with fluctuating market prices. Oil furnaces also need to be cleaned more often than other heating systems; a service which is usually provided at an extra cost from your fuel supplier.

Luckily, a better option exists. That option is bioheat. Read below to learn more…

Devine Bros. first introduced bioheat to Connecticut in 2004.

As true innovators and pioneers of alternative energy, Devine Bros. introduced bioheat to the Connecticut market as a cost-effective way for customers to reduce heating emissions.

Bioheat burns cleaner than traditional heating oil.

Bioheat produces less emissions than traditional heating oil as it burns. This not only lessens your impact on the environment, it makes the air in your home cleaner.

Bioheat is more efficient than traditional heating oil.

Bioheat burns hotter than heating oil and natural gas, meaning less is required to keep your house warm and cozy.

Bioheat can extend the lifespan of your heating system.

Because it burns cleaner, bioheat limits the wear and tear on your heating system.

Bioheat cleans your furnace as it burns.

Since it is a natural solvent, bioheat actually cleans your furnace as it burns. This means less costly cleanings from your fuel supplier are required.

Bioheat reduces our dependence on foreign oil.

Bioheat is produced tight here in the United States of America. Every time you refill your oil tank with bioheat, you are supporting our economy and lessening our dependence on foreign countries.

You can use bioheat with your current home heating system.

The best part about bioheat is that you don’t need to purchase any new heating equipment to take advantage of it. That’s right – if your current heating system uses traditional heating oil, it is fully compatible with bioheat!

The Devine Bros. Bioheat Story

Back in 2004, Devine Bros. introduced bioheat to the Connecticut market. As true innovators and pioneers of alternative energy, we wanted to offer a way for our customers to reduce their emissions without having to spend extra money on their heating bill or make adjustments to their home’s current heating system.

Our bioheat fuel is made by blending biodiesel with conventional heating oil. Biodiesel is created when any fat or oil, such as soybean oil, goes through a refinery process called transesterfication. During this process, the oil reacts with an alcohol in order to remove glycerin.

Biodiesel is a natural solvent, so it actually cleans as it moves through your home’s heating system. Biodiesel is also the only alternative fuel source that has fully completed the Clean Air Act’s testing requirements. Studies have shown that using biodiesel in a standard home oil burner actually resulted in significantly reduced emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, and other particulate matter.

In addition to reducing greenhouse gasses – which are a main cause of global warming – the use of American-made bioheat also lessened our reliance on foreign oil imports. The potential impact of this alternate fuel source has brought national attention to our family-owned business; we have been featured on the CBS Early Show, News 12, Bloomberg Radio, the Connecticut Post, and more!
