ULSHO: A Game-Changer For Your Home And The Planet

ulsho earth friendly fuel new yorkOne of the most important ways to live greener is by making smart choices about the way we heat our Hudson Valley homes. The good news is that today’s heating oil makes it easier than ever to do that.

For almost two years, Bottini Fuels has been delivering ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) to our Hudson Valley customers; with a sulfur concentration of 15 ppm (parts per million) or less –down from the 500 ppm mandate established in 2014 (it was 3,000 ppm before that) – this high-quality fuel is dramatically cleaner-burning than oil produced in the past.

Compared to old school heating oil, today’s ULSHO improves efficiency, which lowers your monthly energy bills. It also reduces the amount of maintenance needed for your heating equipment, since cleaner fuel reduces deposits on heating exchangers. Best of all, it delivers this performance without requiring any alterations to your existing furnace or boiler.

When it comes to keeping the planet happy, ULSHO might even do a better job, cutting out 99 percent of sulfur dioxide emissions (one of the leading contributors to acid rain and smog), 97 percent of airborne emissions, and 30 percent of NOx emissions compared to regular heating oil.* ULSHO also produces 90 percent less ash*and 40 times less soot** than regular heating oil, making the improved fuel a cleaner option than natural gas.

Protect your equipment and the planet with top-quality ULSHO heating oil from Bottini Fuel. Contact us today to schedule your heating oil delivery in Hudson Valley, NY, or to become a Bottini Fuel customer!
