Waste oil heaters are very useful for sustainably heating all different types of businesses throughout the year, such as auto shops and dealerships. These systems burn most waste oils, including transmission fluid. These heaters do not produce much smoke or harmful pollution and are able to generate enough heat to warm up your business in the colder months.

3 Signs a Waste Oil Burner or Heater is Right for Your Business

When you're looking for a heating system for your business, you need to choose the one that fits your needs best. This means you need to think about your entire operation and the various factors that influence your heating needs. Multiple internal and external factors can influence your decision when purchasing a waste oil heating system.

1. You Generate Plenty of Waste Oil

If you run a business that uses trucks, cars, tractors, or any kind of vehicle, you're likely a prime candidate for using a waste oil heater. Through regular oil changes and other types of routine maintenance, you produce waste oil products that can be repurposed. Rather than paying a company to transport your waste and paying for heat, your waste oil burner or heat provides your business with converted free heat.

Even if you don’t produce enough used oil to provide all of the heat that your building may require, you can dramatically reduce your energy costs with a used oil heating system. And that system will help make sure your waste oil is properly disposed of.

2. You want to cut out the risk of improper waste disposal

If you produce waste oil, then you’re on the hook for the cradle-to-grave responsibility. It essentially means that you are responsible for your waste oil, from the time it is created to the time it is properly disposed of. That being said, even if you hire someone to dispose of your waste oil, you are still responsible for it!

With waste oil heating systems, you gain more control over the removal of waste oil. With an EPA-certified tank and waste oil furnace, you can store and dispose of your used oil safely and legally. Not only is your cradle-to-grave responsibility taken care of, but you are doing your wallet a favor by reducing your heating and transportation costs.

3. You care about your business's finances.

Using your used oil as free heating fuel for your facility can help cut your company's costs drastically. In turn, that resource could potentially boost your bottom line. Burning waste oil generates heat which is an economical option for businesses that produce used oil products. As we just mentioned, you can save money by eliminating transportation costs and your liability. You'll also reduce your facility's overall heating costs. In just 5 years of using a Clean Burn waste oil burner, you could save more than $1,200 on heating costs.
