Choosing Bioheat® fuel oil over natural gas to heat your home offers numerous unique benefits.

Protection for Our Environment

Over the last four decades, the heating oil industry has cut its total greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 33%. On the other hand, natural gas leaks in the US produce 28 million tons of methane—a greenhouse gas which is about 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide—every year.

Made from readily available, truly renewable resources, you can feel good about your environmental impact while using Bioheat® fuel in your home or business.

Bioheat® fuel is made from a blend of ultra-low sulfur oil and biodiesel. The biodiesel used in this blend is made from renewable and recycled resources, like agricultural vegetable oil by-products and recycled animal fats making Bioheat® oil a much cleaner alternative to natural gas heating.

Savings for Your Wallet

As an oil heat consumer, converting to natural gas can cost more than $10,000 in parts and labor, while upgrading your current oil-fired boiler or furnace can save you up to 30% on your annual fuel bills. Upgrading to a new oil heating system can also give you peace of mind that your equipment is less likely to need emergency repair.

As a Landry & Martin oil customer, you become a part of our family and are our highest priority. We know you, and if and when you need service, we’ll be there for you. Things don’t work that way with gas heating. Big gas companies cannot provide the same level of personalized, reliable service to their customers like a local fuel company can do. Gas company service isn’t always dependable when you need it the most, especially in an unexpected cold snap. When it comes to service, you can count on Landry & Martin.
