Clean Burn vs. Energy Logic vs. Clean Energy: Which Waste Oil Furnace Is Best for Your Large Facility?

If your business is housed within a large warehouse or facility and produces a significant volume of waste oil throughout the year, investing in a waste oil furnace is absolutely a smart investment. Bigger facilities with a substantial amount of waste oil many times can recoup their furnace purchase costs quickly, then continue to turn their waste oil into free heat for years and years.

While the benefits of heating your shop with waste oil are universal, not all manufacturers deliver the same level of value or return-on-investment. This is especially true for facilities with 7, 8, or 9+ bays or a large footprint. Selecting the best furnace for your large facility means choosing a large capacity furnace that’s also efficient enough to burn waste oil all winter long.

To help you decide which high-volume waste oil furnace on the market is the best fit for your business, we’ve compiled a comparison of two of the most recognized waste oil heaters alongside Clean Energy’s all-new CE-440, our largest furnace yet.
