Get to Know Your Fuel Part 1: Heating Oil

- 5:03 pm - June 14th, 2016

What do you know about the fuel that heats your home?
Take a few moments to think about it …
If you get it from Glider Oil, you know first of all it’s either heating oil or propane. That much is a given. Second, you know you can count on it to be delivered promptly thanks to our convenient automatic delivery and C.O.D. delivery options. And if you’re like most people, at this point you’re probably thinking, “What else is there to know?”  
At Glider Oil, we want you to be fully satisfied with your home heating choice. That’s why our website explains several of the most important benefits of heating oil: safety, abundance, cleanliness, dependability and energy efficiency. As a New Yorker, you get to enjoy all of these along with the added advantages of using ultra-low sulfur heating oil.
Ultra-low sulfur heating oil, or ULSHO for short, is heating oil that contains no more than 15 parts-per-million (PPM) sulfur. Whereas heating oil in some neighboring states can contain as much as 500 PPM sulfur, New York is one of the only states that require all residential heating oil to be ULSHO. Using ULSHO to heat your home results in:
  • Healthier indoor air quality
  • Improved heating system performance
  • More efficient home heating
  • Reduced pollution
  • Cleaner neighborhoods and a cleaner planet
As an environmentally responsible home comfort provider, Glider Oil is proud to offer all our heating oil customers a clean, continuous supply of ultra-low sulfur heating oil, along with all the benefits of doing business with a dedicated, local, family-owned full-service company. If you’re interested in signing up for automatic heating oil delivery, please contact the Glider Oil office closest to your neighborhood.
