Services Department

We have seven service vehicles at our disposal and our service technicians can do it all Рfrom changing an oil tank-gauge, an oil tank, annual cleaning, to installing a full heating system from scratch. We also provide free quotations: for example, if you are building a new home, or just changing your heating system,  we will quote you the total cost.

Automatic Delivery

Automatic Delivery is a free service that we offer to our customers. The colder it is, the more often we go. Our state-of-the -art computer system is able to project when your residence requires oil, based on weather and your historic consumption.

Budget Plan

This is an interest-free plan designed to spread your heating costs over a 12 month period. We estimate what it will cost to heat your house for the winter: for example, say $3,000. Divide that by 12 equal payments and your budget is $250 per month from September to August. If you have a debit at the end of the 12 month period, you pay it in August. If you have a credit, we reimburse you or you can carry the credit balance forward to next winter.

In-House Accounting

In-House accounting has attracted many new customers. We do our own invoicing, billing and statement mailing from our Local Offices. We control all the accounts. If a discrepancy is apparent with your account, it will be dealt with immediately.

  • high-efficiency burners
