Dependable warmth—season after season

Welcome Home to Heating Oil

Having a warm home hasn’t always been as easy as simply turning up the thermostat. In fact, it’s only been a couple generations since homeowners stopped hand-shoveling coal into their furnaces. But by the mid-1930s, Americans had found a better way: home heating oil. With its convenience, safety and warmth, it became the go-to choice—especially here in Northern New England. Today’s advancements in oil-fired boiler and furnace technology mean greater energy-efficiency, a warmer home and lower energy costs.

Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil – Better for You and the Environment

All heating oil within Dead River Company’s New England footprint is now ULSHO. ULSHO is a type of heating oil with lower sulfur content than traditional heating oil. Traditional heating oil has anywhere from 500-4000 PPM (parts per million) and the new ULSHO will have 15 PPM, making it a cleaner and more efficient heating oil. Reducing the sulfur content of heating oil means less pollution, a positive impact on the environment and our health, and better heating system performance.
