Heating Oil & Kerosene
Dependable heating for homes and offices

Why choose heating oil and kerosene?

Heating oil and K1 (kerosene) are dependable go-to heating sources for homes and offices and are a great way to enhance warmth with energy-efficient heating equipment.

Ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO)

All of our heating oil is ULSHO, which means heating oil with a lower sulfur content—15 PPM (parts per million) vs. traditional oil of 500 to 4000 PPM. Reducing sulfur means less pollutants and better heating system performance.

A Few Words From Our Customers

We recently moved from Oregon to New Hampshire. I was clueless as to how to manage oil delivery, as our previous homes were natural gas. I called Dead River and they had very knowledgeable staff to answer all of my questions. I’ve had nothing but great experiences thus far. Highly recommend!

A Few Words From Our Customers

I can honestly say having Dead River as my oil company and servicing my needs has been the best experience I have gone through. Being a first-time homeowner and going through this winter was a breeze. The customer service staff are the best.

Your drivers are always courteous and friendly and your ability to keep our oil tank "topped up" without the need to call gives us peace of mind. Thanks for that.
