Ready to upgrade your heating oil system?

Generally speaking, if your home is already built with a heating oil system and you’re planning to upgrade, you may find it makes sense to replace your equipment with the same type of system you’re currently using.

Upgrading Your System

Our Residential Energy Advisors can help you choose whether to stay with heating oil or convert to a propane system. Each advisor focuses on what will work best for your lifestyle and energy-saving goals. Every boiler and furnace installation includes a free initial year of the SharePlus Service Plan, which covers the cost of your first tune-up.

Heating Oil & Kerosene

Heating oil and K1 (kerosene) are dependable go-to heating sources for homes and offices and will provide warmth during those cold winter nights. Plus, with our ultra low-sulfur heating oil, your system burns cleaner.

Furnaces vs. Boilers: which is better?

Boilers and furnaces provide whole-home heating in slightly different ways. 


By definition, boilers heat your home with water. Pipes throughout the home convey comfortable, radiant heat to every room.


Furnaces move warm air throughout your home with a duct system. Furnace systems are also called “forced air.”

Home heating tax credits & rebates

When you install ultra-efficient home heating equipment, there are often tax credits or manufacturer rebates that cover a portion of the equipment costs. Simply put, you get credit for choosing a more efficient, greener heating option.

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.
