Maus & Son, Inc. brings the future of home heating fuel with every delivery. Our Worry-Free Budget Plan and Automatic Delivery programs make heating with fuel oil predictable. Additionally, our heating oil is setting the standard for clean home heating with our Bioheat® Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil!
The new Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil (ULSHO) and Bioheat® blend is a pre-blended mix of ULSHO and a biofuel, and is one of America’s leading environmentally friendly fuel sources.
In 2018, all fuel providers in Connecticut switched to the Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil after years of research and testing. Today’s blend is a mix of approximately 7% biofuel and 93% ULSHO.
Benefits of Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil
Heating equipment running on ULSHO lasts longer and requires less maintenance.
Greenhouse gas emission reduction
97% reduction in Sulfur Dioxide
85% reduction in Particulate Matter
15% reduction in Nitrous Oxide
7% reduction in Carbon Dioxide
Using ULSHO can increase your heating system’s efficiency. And, according to the Consumer Energy Council of America, ULSHO reduces emissions by over 70 percent compared to traditional heating fuel.
No modifications are needed. Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil is designed, tested, and proven to work with your existing burner, boiler, furnace, water heaters and oil tank.
ULSHO here in Connecticut is blended with renewable, eco-friendly Bioheat® fuel to create the cleanest home heating fuel in the USA. Combine that with the latest advanced burners, and emissions are reduced even further!
What is BioHeat®?
Made from recycled plant oils and other renewable resources, it produces a cleaner burn for your heating system.
A cleaner burn results in more efficient operation, saving you money on your heating bills.
Bioheat is domestically produced, helping to create more jobs in the U.S. and reduce our dependency on foreign oil.
Just like with Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil, there’s no need to convert your existing heating oil equipment!
Trust that your fuel is made for a sustainable future.
Home Heating Oil Leading The Way
A Brookhaven National Laboratories study has concluded that Bioheat blends as low as 1.8% is cleaner than Natural Gas. We’re blending up to 7% with no negative impacts.
ULSHO emits approximately 70% less Carbon Monoxide than natural gases.
While Carbon Dioxide emissions are slightly higher from ULSHO than natural gas, the difference is negligible when compared with higher efficiency heating equipment.
Methane, emitted by natural gas is far more toxic than Carbon Dioxide
The Northeast natural gas infrastructure is antiquated; immeasurable amounts of methane is being leaked all day, every day. Additionally, these leaks are extremely dangerous.
ULSHO companies like Maus and Son, Inc. operate independently as privately held businesses. Unlike the gas company, there is no monopoly and we must price our fuel competitively while developing new technologies and maintaining our infrastructure.
Approaching Carbon neutrality. The future with home heating is now and we’re continuing to improve our fuel for generations to come.
