The largest factor that separates us from our competitors is experience. We were one of the major pioneers in the waste oil heating industry, and have been building waste oil heaters since 1976. No other competitor has been building and selling waste oil heaters as long as Lanair.
The top competing waste oil heater manufacturer’s technology has been fundamentally the same since around 1993, and they all still share the same basic mechanics. For example, all of the high quality waste oil heaters today pump oil to the burner under pressure, where the oil is mixed with low-pressure air for atomization prior to combustion. All manufacturers pre-heat both the waste oil and low pressure air, and all major waste oil heaters can handle burning dirtier oil.
Many years ago, waste oil heater technology greatly varied from manufacturer to manufacturer, but now there are very minor design differences which has resulted in increased trust and dependability for the waste oil industry as a whole.
Because the technology is so similar, Lanair has chosen to set itself apart from the competitors by providing Factory Direct Manufacturing & Sales, a key element in Lanair holding the position of low-price-leader in the waste oil heater industry.
Lanair includes free Factory Direct Customer Service via Telephone ( FOR LIFE! ) to all customers. Most competitors cannot provide this service, and you will end up having to pay for someone to come on-site and fix your heater. At Lanair, if you ever have a problem, just give us a call and we’ll do our best to walk you through whatever issues arise, and if a Lanair part needs to be replaced, you can order it directly from us and replace it yourself, essentially cutting out the “middle man” and saving yourself labor costs.
