Ultra-low sulfur heating oil

In July 2012, home heating oil in New York State became a lot greener. The reason? The ultra-clean, ultra-efficient, and ultra-environmentally friendly fuel known as ultra-low sulfur heating oil - ULSHO for short.

In 2010, New York State approved a switch to ultra-low sulfur heating oil, which reduces sulfur content in the fuel by 99%. The law went into effect on July 1, 2012.

Modern Oilheat has always been a clean fuel - so clean it boasts near-zero emissions. ULSHO is the cleanest Oilheat you can buy. While sulfur levels found in the "old Oilheat" averaged 2,000 parts per million, ULSHO has a sulfur content of 15 parts per million.

Benefits of ULSHO:
  • Heating equipment that runs on ULSHO requires less maintenance.
  • Using ULSHO could also help your heating system operate more efficiently.
  • According to the Consumer Energy Council of America, ULSHO reduces emissions by over 70% compared to traditional heating fuel.
  • When combined with the reduced global warming potential produced by biofuel blends known as Bioheat®, ultra-low sulfur heating oil can be shown to be the environmental fuel of choice for home heating.
With innovations like ULSHO, you can rest assured that Oilheat is the fuel of the future - good for heating systems, the environment ... and you!
