Car Repair Shops - Waste Oil Boiler Installations

These are just a few of the car and truck repair shops we've worked with who are saving thousands of dollars every year in heating costs by recycling their used oil onsite for heat recovery. They've also eliminated their expenses for used oil disposal. Utility bill savings typically pay for a new system in 24 - 36 months. With minimal maintenance, waste oil burning boilers and heaters run for decades. Radiant floor heat is cost-effective in new facilities. Unit heaters are cost-effective for new and existing car and truck repair shops. Click photo thumbnails to see larger photos and photo captions.
