Top-Rated for Safety, Efficiency and Comfort

heating oil Chester county, pa The benefits of heating with oil include staying warm and toasty even on bitter cold winter nights. Why is that possible?

Heating oil produces a tremendous amount of heating energy, providing both efficiency and comfort. For every gallon of heating oil consumed, nearly 140,000 Btu’s of heat are produced. That’s the equivalent of about 70,000 60-watt lightbulbs! It’s also far more heating energy than an equivalent amount of natural gas, propane gas or electricity can generate.

How Safe Is Heating Oil?

Did you know that heating oil cannot explode? The fuel that sits in your tank is as likely to explode as the water in your backyard swimming pool. It’s that safe.

Plus, with a heating oil tank on your property, you can always count on having a secure, on-site supply. Heating oil is easily transported and handled by highly trained professionals, who use equipment and techniques that keep safety at the forefront.

Additionally, a heating oil system poses a very low risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If an oil burner malfunctions (most often due to a lack of maintenance), the safety devices in the unit will typically shut the heating oil furnace or heating oil boiler off.

Our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is made from locally sourced products, which helps in reducing waste within our communities.

The B20 part of B20 Bioheat Plus fuel stands for what percentage of the fuel is made with biofuels. That means that our Bioheat fuel is made with 20% biofuels.
