As the heating season starts to ramp up, Woodford’s Danville regional office is supplying Central Kentucky with a new, environmentally friendly alternative fuel: Bioheat®.
Bioheat is a blend of traditional heating oil and 2-5% biodiesel that can be used to heat homes and businesses. The biodiesel is made from renewable resources such as soybean oil and animal fat, making it biodegradable and clean burning.
Bioheat has been shown to reduce carbon emissions by an average of 80% compared to traditional fuel oil, and also reduces sulfur oxides and sulfates, which contribute to acid rain. Bioheat can be used with existing heating oil equipment and can even extend the life and efficiency of the equipment by reducing black smoke and soot residue. Learn more at www.heatingkentucky.com
