Benefits of Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil

June 2018

The heating oil industry is switching to Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil (ULSHO) as of July 1, 2018. There are several environmental and health benefits of this cleaner burning heating fuel including reduction in air pollution and reduced heating costs.

With the switch to ULSHO, thousands of tons of sulfur dioxide emissions, which contribute to pulmonary disease and haze, will be eliminated. Consumers can also benefit from reduced heating costs, as ULSHO makes existing heating systems more efficient, reduces the need for system maintenance and increases system longevity.
