Affordable Fuels: Sunbury Heating Oil for Residential Homes

If you’re one of nearly 10 million Americans who depend on heating oil to stay comfortable during the long Pennsylvania winters, you know how important it is to find a dependable and economical home heating oil company that you can rely on.

That’s where Affordable Fuels’ Sunbury heating oil team comes in.

Thanks to Affordable Fuels you can keep your family warm and cozy from the fall through the spring, and forget about the logistics.

Once a customer, you will be added to a delivery schedule based on your home’s energy needs. However, if you need an additional delivery, they can take care of that too – they will even deliver just 100 gallons. Most local companies require a 150 gallon minimum.

Because the company focuses on Northumberland, Union, Snyder, Montour, Dauphin, and Juniata Counties, they are able to provide more efficient service for their customers.

Since 2000, Affordable Fuels has grown their customer base to over 5,000 customers in the region. To meet the needs of the community, Affordable Fuels has three delivery trucks, so whether it’s a scheduled delivery or an emergency on a Sunday afternoon, they will be there when you need them the most.

They will also work within your budget. As a LIHEAP vendor (Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program) they will work with customers on a one-on-one basis to determine a payment plan that is within your budget, even stretching payments over the entire year. This eases the burden of very high heating bills in the coldest winter months, when demand is at its peak.

They promptly and professionally deliver the following:

  • Heating oil
  • Premium diesel
  • Gasoline
  • Dyed Kerosene

They don’t stop at delivery, though. They also offer a range of maintenance and repair services, including:

  • Full HVAC service
  • Installation of furnaces, boilers, and HVAC systems
  • Repair of furnaces, including seasonal cleanings
  • Emergency service
  • New and used heating oil tanks
  • Skid tanks

Heating Oil Has Made Great Strides in Emissions Standards

Classified as #2 heating oil, this petroleum-based product can be used to power oil furnaces, boilers, generators and even swimming pool heaters. New oil heat systems on the market can generate heat using water or steam, warm air or hydro-air and can be integrated into air conditioning and radiant heat systems.

Many consumers believe the oil heat industry had made little progress during the past 50 years. Others have the misconception that petroleum oil is an outdated, expensive and environmentally unhealthy heat source. Nothing could be further fro the truth.

The fact is that oil heat meets all standards of the Environmental Protection Act due to its lower production of sulfur and ability to burn cleanly. Burner emissions ratings are approaching near-zero levels thanks to the work conducted by the National Oil heat Research Alliance (NORA). Established by Congress in 2000, this organization governs the research, development, training and regulations of the oil heat industry.

Sunbury Heating Oil Customers Prefer Fuel to Electricity or Natural Gas

Cozier Homes

Many Sunbury heating oil customers report their oil-heated homes feel consistently warmer and cozier than homes that use electricity and natural gas. And there’s a good reason for that. Oil produces the hottest flame, which means the home is heated more quickly while consuming less fuel. Heating oil can also provide faster, less expensive, and hotter water than gas or electric.

Safer Energy

There are also a few safety factors that Sunbury heating oil customers like to point out. Unlike natural gas, oil heat is not combustible, which makes it a safer alternative. Additionally, an oil system will warn you of dangerous carbon monoxide levels by issuing smoke and soot, unlike a gas system. To address other safety concerns, some new boilers are being installed outside the home.

Lower Cost

Sunbury heating oil customers also benefit from a variety of buying methods that suit their unique needs, including cash on delivery, automatic delivery, will-call and full-year contracts. Budget plans can also be calculated into manageable monthly payments so that higher winter costs do not become financially burdensome. Customers also appreciate the simple usage statements they receive since oil heat is measured in gallons instead of difficult to comprehend gas terms.

Affordable Fuels will also work within each customer’s budget. As a LIHEAP vendor (Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program) they will work with customers on a one-on-one basis to determine a payment plan that is within your budget, even stretching payments over the entire year. This eases the burden of very high heating bills in the coldest winter months, when use is at its peak.

Middleburg Heating Oil Customers Save Money

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating oil is not only 16 percent more efficient than natural gas, but it has also been cheaper in 12 out of the past 18 years.

You can also combat costs by making simple improvements to your system, such as replacing an old thermostat, insulating pipes and ducts or scheduling a tune-up to check for proper adjustments and clogged ignition parts. These low-cost strategies can sometime knock 25 percent off your energy bill.

If your home is not already equipped with an energy efficient oil heat system, upgrading your equipment will also help you get the most out of each gallon of oil. Depending on your old appliance, this investment could cut oil fuel consumption by a substantial 30 to 50 percent. The federal government has extended the personal tax credit for energy efficient appliances that are purchased in 2011. These include water heaters, furnaces, boilers, heat pumps and central air conditioners.

Delivery Options for Sunbury Heating Oil Customers

In addition to reliable, 24-hour emergency service, Affordable Fuels offers two delivery options for Middleburg heating oil customers.

With the Automatic option, you receive regularly-scheduled deliveries. This is a hassle-free way to ensure your system never runs out of the fuel it needs. Although we monitor your oil usage, should your tank somehow become empty, you will receive priority service.

Middleburg heating oil customers who want to have a more active role in monitoring their own fuel usage levels can sign up for Will-Call deliveries. You should contact us when the fuel level decreases to a quarter tank. A run-out will require system priming, which incurs an additional fee. You will also need to contact us at least 48 hours in advance. Will-Call deliveries can be made for less than 100 gallons and customers must be home to accept the delivery.
