Waste oil heating systems have become a popular option for many businesses because of their many environmental and economical benefits. There are, however, several things that you may want to consider before making the switch. Here’s what you need to know before you purchase a waste oil heating system.

What a waste oil heating system is

A waste oil heating system is simply a furnace or boiler that uses waste oil to produce free heat for your facility. Clean Burn waste oil heating systems can recycle waste oil, synthetic oil, ATF, hydraulic oil, and #2 fuel oil.

Who can benefit from switching to a waste oil heater

If you generate 500 gallons or more of waste oil per year, you could greatly benefit from a waste oil heater. Any business that generates a significant amount of waste oil can reap massive savings and benefits from these systems. Even if you don’t produce enough used oil to consistently heat your business, Clean Burn oil heaters can also burn #2 fuel oil.

Industries and organizations that most commonly benefit from switching to waste oil heaters are:

  • Auto and equipment repair shops
  • Car dealerships
  • Car washes
  • Construction, demolition, and renovation companies
  • Farmers and ranchers
  • Heavy equipment dealerships
  • Mining
  • Oil and fluid replacement
  • Rental car lots
  • Taxis
  • Trucking

How much money you’ll save with a waste oil heating system

Switching to a waste oil heating system is certainly an investment, but it won’t take long to start seeing the payback. Depending on how cold it is, it’ll take between 18 - 24 months to start seeing your return.

Why you should switch to waste oil heating systems

In addition to free heat, switching to a waste oil heater means frees up some of your responsibility. With a waste oil heater, you won’t have to worry about the “cradle-to-grave” liability that comes with producing waste oil. And we don’t need to tell you how difficult it can be to manage the pollution, clean-up, and disposal of waste oil.

With a waste oil heater, you can rest easy knowing you’re recycling your waste oil following EPA rules and regulations. Not only that, but Clean Burn heaters are recognized by the EPA for their preservation of clean air.

Waste oil heaters turn your liability into an asset, help protect the planet, and boost your bottom-line. Do you need any more reasons to make the switch?

When to invest in a waste oil heating system

The truth is, there’s no bad time to invest in a waste oil heater! But to reap the maximum amount of cost savings, you’ll want to purchase your heater before colder weather arrives. If you purchase your waste oil heating system by late summer or early fall, your equipment can be ready to start working when the temperature drops.
