Oil or BioHeat® is still the best choice for most Maine homes.Did you know that traditional #2 heating oil has reduced its carbon footprint by 40% over the last 30 years? That means a significant reduction in pollution and a more effective heat source, too.
Our premium B5 BioHeat is a blend of 5% soybean oil with 95% traditional #2 heating oil. Switching to BioHeat will give you a 1-1 reduction in overall fuel consumption. For every % of Biodiesel your use, you’ll save that % in fuel. (eg. Use B5 for a 5% reduction in total usage, B10 for a 10% reduction, etc.)
Top 5 reasons to use bioheat
- Using Bioheat reduces greenhouse gases and reduces carbon dioxide by up to 78%.
- If every household that heats with oil switched to B5 blend, it would be equivalent to taking 700,000 cars off the road.
- Bioheat burns more cleanly and acts as a cleaning agent and lubricant to keep your heating system running more efficiently
- Bioheat has been granted BQ-9000 accreditation by the National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission.
- B10 BioHeat produces the same amount of CO2 emissions as Natural Gas.

A safe, reliable secondary heat source
With our winter weather, it can be helpful to have a backup to your oil heating system. We can install a propane insert to your existing fireplace or woodstove to make it cleaner and more energy-efficient. We can even determine the best location in your home to place a propane stove, fireplace or heater if you’ve never had one. Our technicians are fully trained in all aspects of propane installation so if you’ve always wanted a propane “something” give us a call. We can help you decide what to purchase, where to put it and take care of the complete installation. Of course, we’ll install the tank and fill it up, too.
Our installation service covers propane fireplaces, propane heaters, propane pool heaters and just about any propane-fueled device you can think of. Propane is safe, reliable and offers a great back-up heat source when the power goes out.
Our Propane Autofill program is part of every propane contract. That way, if you run out, we perform a gas check, refill your propane tank and relight your pilot for FREE!
Demands for propane are hitting record levels and supply is exceptionally tight. To find out more about propane supply and pricing increases please click here.
