Benefits of Waste Oil Heaters Fairfax VA

Waste Oil Heaters Fairfax VA provide many benefits to your business and to the environment in general. Burning waste oil for heat conserves nonrenewable energy sources, such as coal-generated electricity, propane, heating oil, and natural gas. It eliminates the energy and emissions used to haul it away or recycle it by any other means. Waste oil burns cleanly and safely and is approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for business use only. Waster oil heaters are not approved for residential use, residential environments or residential applications of any kind. Waste oil heaters and boilers can burn motor oil, hydraulic brakes fluid, transmission fluid and any other petroleum based products.

Benefits to your business revolve around costs. If you generate as little as 500 gallons of waste oil a year, a heater will save your business thousands of dollars each year in heating costs. You will also be saving money on costs to remove and dispose of waste oil for recycling. You will also save money on maintenance costs for your current heating system. Oil Heaters in Fairfax VA costs approximately the same as one heating season using propane. They also require very little maintenance. Some heaters have intervals of 1,000 hours of operation between cleanings and cleaning time is usually 30 minutes or less. Full return of your investment can be expected from 1 year to 18 months time. Heaters can heat areas from 4,000 square feet to 9,000 square feet and accommodate garages with multiple bays. Fleet garages and oil change/lube shops can benefit from heaters, as can some manufacturing companies.

Most manufacturers of waste oil heaters and boilers sell and service their product line through authorized dealers on the local level. Dealers can answer any questions you may have and help you decide on the right model for your needs. Some dealers, such as Virginia Industrial Cleaners & Equipment, for example, also carry other business equipment. Small industrial tractors, lawn and garden equipment and pressure washers are usually also available at dealers who sell oil heaters. Some carry lawn and garden equipment for residential purposes as well. Research some brand name manufacturers online and then find the local dealer to help you get started saving money by burning your waste oil.
