Oilheat Consumer Study Shows What Really Matters

Using renewable, domestically produced BioHeat® fuel and saving money through improved heating equipment efficiency are important factors for oilheat consumers, according to the findings of a just-released study that surveyed more than 2,300 oil heat consumers.

The 2015 Oilheat Consumer Research Study was conducted in six Northeastern states, including Connecticut, where more than 500 people shared thoughts about their fuel of choice. The responses from Connecticut oilheat consumers closely mirrored those given in neighboring states.

Our goal is to have more people understand that in the years ahead.
