Benefits of Heating Oil:
- Efficient: With 140,000 British Thermal Units (BTU) per gallon, Heating Oil is the hottest burning fuel in the market today. With higher heating temperatures, your heating system will heat faster than other equipment (such as gas), thus reducing the amount of fuel you would burn comparatively. So on those days you need quick heat, oil heat will heat faster than waiting on your electrical heat pump.
- Clean: Advances in today’s oil burners has allowed most oil furnaces to compete with other heating equipment in being the cleanest burning source of heat. With the proper maintenance, such as annual tune-ups, modern oil systems produce nearly no soot. In fact one BTU of oil burns less pollutants then one BTU of natural gas, which is why oil heat does not have any clean air restrictions.
- Safe: Unlike natural gas, oil cannot ignite until the temperature is 140 degrees or higher. Even if temperatures were to reach 140 degrees, before heating oil can be burned it must be turned into fine vapors and ignited. As for all equipment, we strongly recommend regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure maximum safety and operations of your heating equipment.
- Budget Friendly: We want all of our customers to take advantage of our EZ-Pay option. Approved customers are able to split their bill into monthly installments making it easier to manage. Furthermore, those who pay on time each month will receive a $0.05 credit back to their account at the end of the season. Visit our payment options (link) page for opportunities to save further.

Furthermore, our service is performed by well trained professionals. Our objective is to bring you total heating and cooling comfort seven days a week.
