You Don’t Need to Generate Waste Oil to Save Money with a Waste Oil Furnace

Waste oil furnaces can save on energy expenses for businesses who convert their used petroleum products into fuel for heat. Cutting costs by recycling waste oil makes good bottom line business sense. And waste oil heaters also help companies act on their commitment to preserving the environment by reusing potentially hazardous waste and preventing it from entering the eco-system. For companies that generate their own waste oil, waste oil furnaces are by design a natural fit. But did you know you can take advantage of their cost-savings potential even if you don’t run a business that creates its own waste oil?

Fueling Up a Waste Oil Furnace

Waste oil heaters can run on used motor oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid and other petroleum products. They can also burn standard No. 2 heating oil or a mixture of old and new oil products. If your company doesn’t generate any – or enough – waste oil to keep a furnace burning, you can get the fuel you need from waste oil brokers or companies that sell home heating oil.

Brokers buy waste oil from businesses who don’t recycle it on their own and who need a regulatory-compliant professional to remove it from their properties. Though there aren’t a plethora of brokers out there, they can be found nationally. Some sell only to certain regions, while others have distribution networks that span across the United States and beyond. Keep in mind that not all used oil brokers sell to businesses of all sizes. Some have minimum order requirements.

With No. 2 heating oil available from many different providers, you can easily use it as your sole source – or in a supplemental role – for fueling your waste oil furnace. That gives you some flexibility if you run into issues with pricing or availability of used oil.
