Propane Won’t Degrade Like Other Fuels

propane Wakefield, MA Another great way you get peace of mind with Broco Energy as your propane supplier is that the fuel we put in your tank doesn’t have a shelf life or an expiration date. In other words, propane doesn’t degrade as other fuels do, such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel and heating oil. So, as long as your propane tank is properly maintained, the propane that sits inside will be perfectly fine, and its potency and efficiency will not be affected even if it rests in storage for a long time.

That’s just one more reason why propane represents an extremely smart choice as a fuel source for all types of home appliances and other equipment in your home. This includes water heaters, furnaces, boilers, space heaters, fireplaces, and whole-house generators.

Can Propane Freeze in My Tank?

Another issue you don’t need to worry about is your propane supply freezing inside the tank. Propane’s freezing point is about -306°F. This temperature could only be produced in a laboratory setting because this freezing point is too cold to happen anywhere on Earth—including the South Pole.

However, we should note that propane does have a boiling point of about -44°F. What does this mean? Well, at this temperature, liquid propane can no longer turn into a gas. Now it is possible, if rare, to reach that temperature, but it would be very rare. For trivia buffs, the coldest recorded temperature in Massachusetts was -40°F in January 1984.

Cold Weather Affects Tank Pressure

The main concern during extremely cold winters is not propane freezing, but a loss of pressure in your tank.

Like all liquids, propane contracts in the cold. When it does, the volume of liquid propane in your tank shrinks, resulting in a loss of pressure. If the pressure gets too low, propane won’t be able to reach your gas burners.

To avoid low pressure problems during cold weather extremes, follow these tips:

Heating Oil Warms Your Home Evenly and Efficiently

heating oil North Reading, MA Even though so much has improved with today’s heating oil, something important has remained the same. People in North Reading, MA and elsewhere in our service area always know that no matter how cold it gets, they can always rely on heating oil to keep them comfortable.

Frosty temperatures always reinforce the value of owning an oil-heated home. That’s because heating oil generates nearly 140,000 Btu’s of heat for every gallon burned and warms a home evenly and efficiently.

What’s the secret? The flame in a heating oil system burns hundreds of degrees hotter than in other energy systems, which helps keep oil-heated homes toasty warm during our New England winters.

Of course, homeowners who take advantage of the latest heating oil technology, such as high-efficiency heating oil boilers and heating oil furnaces, increase their odds of having the warmest, most comfortable home in their neighborhood.

Is Heating Oil Safe?

Heating oil is a remarkably safe home heating fuel. First, heating oil cannot explode. The fuel that sits in your tank is as likely to explode as the water in your backyard swimming pool. It’s that safe.

Plus, with a heating oil tank on your property, you can always count on having a secure, on-site supply. Heating oil is carefully transported and expertly handled by highly trained professionals, who use equipment and techniques that keep safety at the forefront.

Additionally, a heating oil system poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If an oil burner malfunctions (most often due to a lack of maintenance), the safety devices in the unit will typically shut the heating oil furnace or heating oil boiler off.

Bioheat® Fuel Raises the Bar

Broco Energy delivers Bioheat fuel to our heating oil customers and it is an absolute game-changer when it comes to heating your home, saving you money, and helping the environment.

Bioheat fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil combined with premium biofuels made from renewable resources such as animal fats, recycled restaurant cooking oils, algae, and plant oils such as soybeans and sunflower.

Because it is cleaner burning, generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional heating oil, Bioheat fuel helps to increase system efficiency, which reduces your home heating expenses while keeping your home comfortable.

Because it is clean burning, Bioheat fuel leaves fewer deposits on your system’s internal parts. That helps to reduce wear and tear, meaning you will likely have fewer breakdowns and a longer life expectancy for your heating oil boiler or heating oil furnace compared to running it with traditional heating oil. You don’t have to add anything to or modify your boiler or furnace in any way to use Bioheat fuel.

Bioheat Fuel Delivery in North Reading, MA and Beyond

You may be able to enjoy all of Bioheat fuel’s benefits right now with your next heating oil delivery when you become a Broco Energy customer.

Many of our heating oil customers have enrolled in our FREE automatic delivery program. This allows us to stay on top of your fuel needs and be in touch when it’s time to schedule a Bioheat fuel delivery long before your tank gets too low. We find that this is a tried-and-true method of minimizing the risk of a run-out. You’ll never have to think about how much fuel is in your tank. You will also get a better price-per-gallon from us.

The Broco Energy team of expert licensed heating oil service technicians and heating oil delivery drivers serve the Reading and North Reading area, along with surrounding communities in Massachusetts and up to New Hampshire.

Partnership with Chevron REG Ensures High Quality

biodiesel haverhill, ma When Bob Brown and his wife, Angela, started Broco Energy in 2007, they were committed to being different: they wanted to be an energy company that would provide lower carbon fuel solutions in the New England area. They knew that heating oil was a reliable home heating source. But they wanted it to be better. And their customers did, too.

“A lot of people in this region really support renewable fuels and they want to use a lower carbon fuel, but they don’t want to go through the extra expense of upgrading their equipment to accommodate it,” Bob Brown says. “We needed to find the right partner to roll out a blending process that would work for all of us. We already knew Bioheat® fuel represented the best solution for a lower carbon fuel.”

That’s when Broco Energy started looking for potential partners with good reputations in the industry. Their search led to Chevron Renewable Energy Group, a top biodiesel producer in both the U.S. and abroad.

The First Biodiesel Terminal in New England

In 2017, Broco Energy purchased a rail terminal in Massachusetts and two years later, as part of their newly formed partnership with the Chevron Renewable Energy Group, opened the first biodiesel terminal in New England.

“Chevron Renewable Energy Group’s biodiesel is by far the most superior I’ve ever seen,” Brown says. “Their distillation process is the best out there. It allows us to show that we’re selling a premium-branded biodiesel. Because not all biodiesel is created equally.”

Like petroleum diesel, biodiesel is used to fuel compression-ignition engines. Biodiesel is manufactured domestically from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant cooking oil. Read more about biodiesel.

Broco Energy is so committed to doing its part in the industry-wide initiative to reach lower carbon emission targets by 2050 that the company switched 10 of their trucks to run strictly on biodiesel, utilizing Optimus Technologies Vector System.

Brown says his mechanics report better fuel mileage and the drivers observe that the trucks have less regeneration cycles as a result.

“It just smells cleaner too,” says John Pearson, a Broco Energy driver. “I’ve seen other biodiesel products and Chevron Renewable Energy Group’s is just a high-quality product. You can literally see through it. Others are just inferior.”

Brown says he plans to implement biodiesel into the full fleet as well, because it’s important that Broco Energy leads by example.

“We can’t be selling a product and not use it ourselves,” he says. “We are embracing this.”

Broco Energy and Bioheat® Fuel

When Broco Energy first introduced Bioheat® fuel–– a blend of low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel–– residential customers were concerned mostly about two things: the quality of the product and whether their heating system would require expensive modifications or upgrades. A little education – and helpful service technicians who assured customers that their systems were actually better off using Bioheat® fuel – made for a seamless transition.

“Our techs who work on the oil burners really appreciate the fuel because it’s a lower carbon burn and leaves the heat exchangers almost carbon-free,” Brown says. “When you have an existing oil burner that can now burn a biodiesel blend at absolutely zero cost to the customer for a retrofit, that’s a win-win. They’re getting more life out of their systems just by using cleaner fuel, they’re saving money and they’re doing their part by embracing renewable fuels.”

With a solid partnership in place with Chevron Renewable Energy Group, Brown says he now looks forward to new legislation that will help incentivize companies to use biodiesel so it becomes standard nationwide.

A local fire captain and U.S. Navy Seabee veteran, Brown says he also appreciates that Chevron Renewable Energy Group offers a superior home-grown product that’s truly scalable to reduce carbon emissions.

Broco Energy: Always Ready to Respond

disaster response Essex county, ma Disaster relief means more than just providing oil trucks and supplies. Response from our Priority 1 Team includes manpower and logistics coordinators who will send oil tanks, conduct remote monitoring and schedule emergency fuel service and deliveries as needed throughout the duration of the incident—anywhere it’s needed throughout the country.

Additionally, Broco Energy provides both routine and emergency generator-fuel service so facilities can be ensured they will have the fuel they require to retain backup power during extended outages. We also offer tank-maintenance services, including fuel polishing, diesel additives, fuel transfers and pump-outs, tank cleaning and more.

Qualifications for Emergency Fueling Services

Broco Energy is certified for emergency response– including emergency fuel delivery– by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as well as the Coast Guard.

Broco has also been designated as the emergency fuel provider for the Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association (MEMA).
Taking advantage of partnerships that we have established throughout the country, our Priority 1 emergency-response team can be found on the scene wherever we’re needed, providing immediate emergency fuel deliveries until the trucks we’ve deployed arrive on site.
Qualified to respond to all levels of emergencies, our team consists of experienced fuel-truck drivers and fuel-logistics coordinators. We can handle extreme weather events and other high-pressure situations, offering critical fuel support when it’s needed most.

How We’ve Responded to Disasters

In 2017, Broco Energy was activated to assist and provide relief efforts for FEMA in Florida during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. That was the beginning of our national Priority 1 emergency-response team.

We left Boston with six oil tank trucks loaded with diesel and gasoline to provide fuel for priority facilities on a 24-hour basis. We stationed our trucks at local hospitals for generator refueling and at designated fueling points to assist the Urban Search & Rescue Task Force.

The following year, with Broco Energy as the prime fuel contractor, the Priority 1 team supplied generators that provided vital heat to thousands of residents left without natural gas service after multiple natural gas explosions occurred in the Merrimack Valley.

We started by teaming up with fire departments on the scene, and then, once the incident was stabilized, we handled fixing the gas main.

That complex operation lasted from early fall into the winter. Broco Energy provided fuel for more than 500 generators 24 hours a day for over three months, until new natural gas lines and equipment could be installed. For this incident, we had dedicated fuel-logistics coordinators who managed the fueling cycle of the generators each day. Read our Emergency Response Stories.

These are just a few examples. Broco Energy remains ready to respond to and assist any community in the U.S. hit by power outages after natural or manmade disasters with emergency fueling and Priority 1 delivery service– every day of the year.

Broce Energy’s Priority 1 emergency-response team offers emergency response to anyone. If you have an immediate need, call our 24-hour disaster-response hotline at 781-246-1130.

The Production of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

propane Wakefield, ma Often described as liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG, propane starts off as a gas but it’s then compressed into a liquid for efficient storage. Pressure is released when liquid propane is released from your tank and through fuel lines into your home. This causes the liquid propane to vaporize and transform into a gas again.

To give you a better understanding, let’s start at the beginning. The roots of the propane industry were planted when American chemist Walter O. Snelling discovered that some evaporating gases could be transformed into liquids. Out of all the gases, propane turned out to be the most plentiful. From there, Snelling discovered a method to bottle this liquid gas. Bottle gas, or bottled gas, is a term that you will still hear or read about today.

The process of making propane has evolved over the last century or so. Today, there are two primary ways propane is produced.

Because propane is created through the processing of natural gas and crude oil, it is a fuel that is largely a domestic product. In fact, about 90% of the American propane supply is generated right here in the United States! That abundant, right-at-home supply in your propane tank makes propane a reliable fuel choice for your home or business, and all its potential appliances and equipment, throughout the year.

Propane vs Electricity

This comes as a surprise to many people, but homes that are powered only by electricity are actually less energy-efficient than those running primarily on propane. Since propane naturally burns hotter, it feels warmer, and the energy produced creates a larger impact. Your energy bills will cost less with such an efficient fuel working for you, especially when paired with high-efficiency propane appliances.

New to the Mix: Renewable Propane

While renewable propane is not widely available yet, homes and businesses all over the U.S. will eventually be able to easily use it. Since renewable propane is molecularly identical to conventional propane, there will be no need to replace or alter existing propane appliances and equipment.

What is renewable propane gas made of? Just as conventional propane is a coproduct of crude oil and natural gas extraction, most renewable propane can be considered a coproduct of biofuel creation. Many of the same feedstocks that go into creating biofuel — animal oils, vegetable oils, biomass — are used to create renewable propane.

This method of producing propane is as safe, cost-effective, and dependable as the propane that’s refined from raw natural gas or raw crude oil. And when compared to electricity, renewable propane has a considerably smaller carbon footprint.

Comparing Propane with Electricity

propane clean energy North Reading, ma Propane gas is a perfect choice for those who strive for environmental responsibility. For starters, it is nontoxic and produces minimal emissions, according to the nonprofit Propane Education and Research Council. Propane is also harmless to soil or groundwater – an important element for being considered a “green” fuel.

Propane is also a low-carbon fuel that does not adversely contribute to the greenhouse effect. In fact, because of its lower greenhouse gas emissions, the US Environmental Protection Agency gave propane its stamp of approval as a clean-burning alternative fuel.

Propane Vs. Electricity: Which Fuel Is Cleaner?

Unfortunately, one of the biggest trends in home energy today is the aggressive government push for conversions to electric heat — at the expense of proven heating fuels like propane and heating oil . This is happening right now in Massachusetts! The argument is that these electric conversions will reduce a home’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The only problem is that, right now, energy from our electric grid is far from clean. In 2021, the combustion of fossil fuels like natural gas and coal for electricity generation was the nation’s second-largest source of CO2 emissions. And in Massachusetts, more than 70% of the electricity generated is still sourced from natural gas power plants.

Propane Is Far More Efficient than Electricity

Propane generates more Btu than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat energy. The less energy you use, the less carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere. To appreciate propane’s big advantage over electricity in energy efficiency, you have to consider Btu content.

Btu can be used to compare energy sources on an equal basis. To compare propane to electricity, we need to know that:

To make these two energy sources “equal,” divide 91,452 Btu by 3,412 Btu. Your answer will be:

Propane101.com makes this simple comparison to illustrate the efficiency of propane compared to electricity. A 100-watt light bulb left on for 24 hours will consume 2.4 kWh. If propane could be used to power the same light bulb during the same time period, it would only use 9/100th of a gallon of propane.

Renewable Propane and Net-Zero Carbon Emissions

Renewable propane represents the next step towards a zero-carbon emissions future for the propane industry and propane consumers.

Renewable propane is molecularly identical to propane. But it is made with renewable resources such as animal oils, plant oils, biomass, and other triglycerides.
As the renewable propane sector grows in the years ahead, more people will be able to use it to lower their carbon footprint even further than they do now with traditional propane. Read more about renewable propane.

Propane: Made in the USA

Almost all the propane used in the U.S. is produced domestically, meaning every gallon you buy contributes to the independence of America’s energy needs.

Maintaining a propane tank on your property gives you the ability to store a sufficient supply that’s always ready for immediate use, eliminating any dependence on an underground gas pipeline.

Sludge in Your Tank Can Clog Your Fuel Lines

oil sludge Haverhill, ma Did you know that condensation–water vapor turning into liquid–can be a common problem for heating oil tanks during the summer? Here’s why. Hot, humid days and cooler nights create the perfect atmosphere for condensation buildup to form inside your tank. And if your storage tank is aboveground, outdoors and in an unshaded area, it’s especially vulnerable to condensation.

To avoid condensation build-up inside your storage tank, it’s best to keep your tank full during the warm months. Don’t worry, your heating oil won’t spoil or go bad if it sits in your tank unused for a couple of months.

Why Condensation Leads to Sludge

After water forms on the bare walls on the empty area of the tank, it drips down and sinks to the bottom of the tank because water is denser than heating oil. There, it becomes an ideal environment for bacteria and other microorganisms.

Over time, these organisms turn into sediment. One problem is that sediment, also referred to as sludge, can get into your fuel lines and clog them. This will cause your heating system to shut down.

If you’re a Broco automatic delivery customer, we make sure your tank has enough fuel inside at the end of the heating season so you can avoid any problems with condensation during the warm-weather months.

If you’re not on our automatic delivery schedule, call us to request a fill-up so we can help you head off any condensation problems with your heating oil tank.

Save Time and Worry with Automatic Delivery

Most of Broco Energy’s heating fuel customers have chosen to take advantage of our automatic heating oil delivery service. This is a proven method that allows us to manage your fuel supply, freeing you up to handle other important household tasks during the heating season. Here is how it works.

Our computer system tracks how much fuel your home will typically use based on how cold it is outside and your fuel usage history. We will deliver fuel automatically to you, usually when your oil tank gets to be one-quarter full (or 30% for propane tanks). The result: minimal chance of a run-out, no more calling for a delivery and no more monitoring your fuel levels on your own.

So, instead of having to call us every time you need more oil or propane, you don’t have to do anything! Our driver will simply come to your home and fill your tank based on the schedule we have built for you.

There is no need to schedule and wait for deliveries, and you’ll avoid the expense and hassle of having your system tested and primed for restart—something that is required after a run-out. Please note that automatic delivery does not include burner service, additives or treatments.

However, when you’re a Broco Energy automatic delivery customer, your price per gallon is better, and you won’t see any extra charges. You’ll be billed automatically too, on your credit card, using a debit card or by ACH. It can’t get any easier than that!

Calling for Your Deliveries

If your fuel needs are not that constant, or if you prefer to manage your heating-oil or propane orders directly, then we recommend staying on will-call. For will-call deliveries, you place your order over the phone or at your fuel account online, and we’ll deliver to you the next time we’re in your area. Please note that will-call deliveries start at a minimum of 100 gallons.
