The Benefits Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil
Ultra-low sulfur heating oil, or ULSHO, is a vast improvement on traditional home heating oil containing fewer parts per million (ppm) of sulfur content than low-sulfur heating oil, which contained at most 500 ppm of sulfur. ULSHO brings the permitted amount of sulfur content in heating oil down to no more than 15 ppm!
This significant drop in sulfur brings many benefits to homeowners throughout Virginia!
- Sulfur buildup is a common cause of equipment breakdowns. Using ULSHO helps your heating equipment last longer and require fewer service calls.
- ULSHO reduces emissions by more than 70 percent compared to traditional heating fuel, according to the Consumer Energy Council of America. Using ULSHO can increase your heating system’s efficiency!
- You don’t need to make any modifications to your heating system. ULSHO can be used in your existing home heating equipment, and mixed with any fuel left in your tank.
