Waste Oil Boilers for Vehicle Repair Shops and Oil Change Shops
With the rising costs of labor, heating, and more it’s harder than ever to maintain healthy margins. Now, you can slash your heating bills, reduce waste oil hauling expenses, and keep your crews toasty warm when it’s cold outside.
Boilers and heaters that burn waste oil are just as reliable and long-lasting as boilers that burn natural gas and other fuels. Virtually any type of oil can be burned in your waste oil boiler – engine oil, transmission oil, hydraulic oil, other petroleum-based fluids, synthetic oil – you name it. Burning your waste oil is simple. Collect your oil, just as you would for hauling. Oil is routed from your collection tank to your boiler through a filter to remove debris. The boiler itself runs just like any other.
Now you can keep your shop and office personnel toasty warm all year and say goodbye to your waste oil hauling bills and the “cradle to grave” liability of being on the hook for clean-up if the truck hauling your waste oil were to get into an accident and spill your oil. Typically, Columbia Boiler waste oil heating systems pay for themselves (through cost savings) in just 24 – 36 months.
Replace your existing heater or boiler with a new waste oil boiler and enjoy decades of reliable heat. If you are building a new facility, consider a radiant heat system. Radiant heat provides unrivaled comfort. Plus, in-floor heat keeps your shop floor and vehicles warm and dry no matter how wet or icy it is outside.
What will your employees think about your new waste oil-powered heaters? Delighted! And so will you. Warm, happy employees typically work steadier and miss fewer work days.
All Columbia Boiler waste oil-burning boilers meet EPA guidelines for recycling used oil on-site.

Assembled and Test Fired
Before a boiler is approved to leave our factory, when you select the Factory Package and Test Fire option, our expert team invests 4 – 5 days to fully assemble, wire, and test fire it. During test firing, key performance indicators are carefully monitored. If adjustments are made it will be test fired again to ensure it is running smoothly.
Full assembly, test firing, and monitoring saves you time and money when your boiler arrives. Your team completes minimal assembly, hooks up your boiler, and it’s ready to use. Optional: we will pipe to your accessories then disconnect for shipping to save even more time on arrival.
