Five Things to Look for in a Heating Oil Supplier

Posted: June 3, 2019

Heating oil supplier

If you have ever comparison shopped for heating oil here in Rhode Island, you have probably noticed that there is no shortage of discount fuel companies out there selling it at prices that seem too good to be true.

As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

If you’re searching for a new heating oil supplier for your Rhode Island home, here are five things to look for beyond the per gallon price of your heating oil:

  1. Experience – Look for a heating oil supplier who has been there and done that for decades – and has the customer testimonials to prove it.
  2. A reliable supply of heating oil – 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.
  3. A range of support 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 one of our famously brutal New England winter nights.
  4. Great payment options – 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 and pricing options that will ease the burden of winter bill paying.
  5. Professionalism – No one can stop a person from buying an oil truck and hanging a shingle as an oil company – or from sending technicians and drivers to your home without properly vetting them. Do you really want those people in your home? We wouldn’t. Look for a heating oil supplier that stands by its work and is up front and honest about what it offers – and what it doesn’t.
