Then, can a fuel oil furnace burn waste oil?
Waste oil furnaces only burn used motor oil, and therefore my options for fuel are limited. Used oil, of course, works very well in a waste oil heater. But a Clean Energy Heating Systems waste oil furnace will also burn new #2 heating oil, hydraulic fluid, most synthetic oils or any mixture of approved liquids.
Also, what can you burn in a waste oil heater? Waste Oil Heaters are U.L. approved to burn motor oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid, diesel and fuel oil. Water and anti-freeze do not burn and separate naturally to the lower part of the oil tank.
Also to know is, how much does a waste oil furnace cost?
Parts: A typical oil furnace costs between $500 and $2500, based on size, brand, and efficiency and can heat a house that is around 2000 square feet or less. Larger houses will require larger furnaces in the $3000 - $4000 range.
How much oil does a waste oil heater use?
Oil consumption depends on the size of the heater and altitude, but generally ranges from . 75 gallons per hour to 2.75 gallons per hour.
