What is a waste oil boiler?
A waste oil boiler, also known as a used oil boiler, is a type of furnace that uses a forced hot water system to push out heat into a building.
Many businesses and organizations that generate waste oil tend to work with a third-party hauler who takes your used oil to a disposal facility, where it is then burned or recycled. However, if your waste oil is going to be recycled for energy anyway, that begs the question: Why wouldn't you just burn it yourself? Well, with a waste oil burner, you can!
Why heat your business with a waste oil furnace over a traditional furnace
There are many reasons to heat your business with a waste oil furnace instead of a traditional heating system. Here are just a few of the ways that these systems can best benefit your business.
Heat your business for free
That's right! With a used oil boiler, you can heat your business for free. Whether you are currently heating your operating space with propane, natural gas, #2 fuel oil, or electric, switching to a waste oil heater can significantly boost your bottom line.

No more cradle-to-grave liability
Oil poses a huge threat to entire ecosystems when it's not disposed of properly. To prevent that environmental damage, the EPA established a cradle-to-grave liability that outlines requirements for managing oil from the time it's first created to the time it's disposed of.
As you can imagine, this creates quite a bit of liability for companies that handle oil products. With a waste oil boiler, you don't have to worry about whether or not your waste oil hauler is disposing of your used oil correctly. Instead, you get to recycle it on location and burn clean fuel that heats your business. It's truly a win-win.
Waste oil boilers are more environmentally friendly
Waste oil heaters don't just generate free heat and turn a liability into an asset. These heating systems are also better for the environment. Burning used oil actually meets the EPA's requirements for preserving clean air and it also puts less pressure on the natural gas and coal industries.
