Northboro Oil delivers a superior grade of heating oil to all customers at no additional charge. Our fuel, known as Heating Oil Plus™, uses a multipurpose additive to keep your system clean, enhance burner performance and simplify maintenance.
Heating oil provides the highest quality warmth of any heating fuel, and it's the value leader in Massachusetts nearly every year, when compared to other fuels. It also has a clean, green future, due to the introduction of renewable Bioheat® fuel and the transition to reduced-sulfur fuel. In fact, the Energy Research Center has reported that a blend combining biofuel and reduced-sulfur heating oil "may well become the preferred fuel for lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S." These advanced blends are compatible with existing heating oil equipment.
Automatic delivery of heating oil is an excellent service that makes refilling your tank more convenient and reduces the amount of phone calls you have to make. Northboro Oil tracks your supply and delivers automatically any time your supply runs low. We set your delivery schedule based on the home's past usage rate, then adjust it to reflect the severity of the winter, which we track using a degree-day system. You can rest easy, knowing your heating oil supply is in good hands, with Northboro Oil's automatic delivery service.
NOTE: If you are on automatic delivery and you think your usage rate has changed, please let us know. (The most common reason for a change in fuel rate is building a new addition on a home.)
Benefits of Heating Oil
Heating oil is the best fuel for home heating because it is safe, clean and economical.
Nothing beats the safety record of heating oil. The fuel's composition is very different from that of either gasoline or utility gas. For example, heating oil cannot even burn in a liquid state, and it is not explosive. In order to light heating oil on fire, you must heat it above 140 degrees - the temperature at which it begins to vaporize. That's why you can store a substantial supply of heating oil on your property without risk or regulation.
Heating oil has a long history of being the best value for home heating in Massachusetts. Natural gas is sometimes less expensive, but over the long haul, heating oil is the proven leader in affordable home heating.
Heating oil burns so cleanly that its emissions aren't even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act. The introduction of new blends such as Bioheat® fuel and reduced-sulfur heating oil will make our fuel even cleaner in the years ahead.
Heating oil produces the hottest flame of any home heating fuel, heating your home faster, with less fuel, and keeping your rooms at the temperature you want.
The heating oil industry's hard work to produce energy-efficient equipment has paid off: Some new heating systems have efficiency ratings of 90% and over! Compared to a heating system from 1973 that took an average of 1,294 gallons to heat a home, a modern heating system takes an average of only 833 gallons!
Petroleum products such as heating oil are derived primarily from crude oil produced in North America, where the supply has grown in recent years. The U.S. is now the world's leading oil producer. U.S. heating oil imports have fallen to their lowest level in 20 years. The largest international supplier of heating oil to the U.S. is Canada, followed by Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Mexico. Heating oil customers can count on reliable supply for years to come with reduced dependence on the Middle East.
