How To Choose A Heating Oil Supplier

If you have shopped for a new heating oil supplier recently here in Connecticut, you probably know that there are quite a few “discount” fuel companies out there selling oil at prices that seem too good to be true.

The problem is that you usually get what you pay for.

Characteristics of a good heating oil company

If you’re searching for a new heating oil supplier, here are five qualities you should look for beyond the per gallon price of your fuel:

  1. Longevity – Look for a supplier who has a long track record of heating oil delivery success – and has the customer testimonials to prove it.
  2. Reliability – Ask your prospective heating oil supplier if they have their own fuel storage facilities – or if they have great relationships with regional heating oil suppliers in case of a winter demand crunch. Without a “plan B”, your supplier candidate probably won’t be able to ensure reliable heating oil deliveries.
  3. Comprehensive services – Look for companies that offer expert installations, professional preventative maintenance, and 24/7 heating system repairs in addition to heating oil deliveries – that way you’re covered in the event of an emergency on a frigid New England winter night.
  4. A customer-first mindset – A heating oil supplier should always put your comfort and safety first – and one of the most important ways to do that is to provide flexible, money-saving payment plans that will ease the burden of winter bill paying.
  5. Integrity – Look for a heating oil supplier that delivers on their promises and stands by their work.
