ckSmithSuperior uses Injection Blending to make precise Bioheat blends
Bioheat, the combination of biodiesel and standard home heating oil, is the safe, energy efficient, and clean future of home heating oil, when blended and delivered properly. Bioheat is part biodiesel, reused plant, cooking, vegetable or other discarded oils, and standard home heating oil in certain percentage blends, like 20% bio and 80% heating oil or B20. Currently ckSmithSuperior delivers a B40 blend, where the fuel you're getting to your home is 40% biodiesel and 60% home heating oil. The key to safe and reliable bioheat is through the blending process where bioheat is created. All home heating oil starts with 5% biodiesel, the remaining 35% is blended into the home heating oil through injection blending. Injection blending is where the biodiesel is injected right into the home heating oil, another blending process is called "splash" blending, where the desired amount of biodiesel is just added to a delivery truck, like adding cream to your coffee in the morning. Splash blending can create uneven levels of bioheat inside the delivery truck, where the top of the truck could be 20% bioheat and the bottom could be 80%. Injection blending allows for precise blending amount all controlled by a computer, below you can find a link to a video that showcases the exact injection blending system ckSmithSuperior uses.

Will was fantastic. He not only showed up on time and performed all services wonderfully but he also helped walk us through a problem area we are having. He spent time explaining all the proponents of the issue and helped us get to the bottom of who to contact next. He went above and beyond for us and it made what could have been a difficult day easier.

Jim was professional, courteous, and efficient while visiting for our annual cleaning.
Also, longtime customers but first survey we are completing it because Jim took the time to explain everything and then reviewed the survey with us. In the past the paper just landed in a pile, never even knew a survey was attached.
Thanks, Jim - you are great!

Ed came to fix problems with the new furnace installed on 8/22/23. Replaced control unit, found and repaired 3 leaks. Ed was very thorough with the repairs as well as testing everything multiple times to ensure the proper function of all system components. I would gladly have Ed return for maintenance if the occasion arises. I was extremely satisfied with his work ethic and demeanor.

We have had only good experiences with the ckSmithSuperior service staff. They installed a propane heater and mini splits, both of which were done professionally and in a clean, workman-like fashion. When service has been needed, it has been easy to schedule, at a convenient time, and all issues were addressed. Our most recent oil burner cleaning was completed by Tim Sheperd who was courteous, friendly, efficient, and thorough.
