New to Home Heating Oil

Whether it’s your first time using home heating oil, or it’s the first time you’ve chosen Oil Patch Fuel to service your Philadelphia area home, we’re happy to help answer any questions you may have!

Home heating oil is a tried-and-true method for keeping homes warm, and for good reason. Not only is it effective at combating freezing cold winters, it’s also a viable option for environmentally-conscious homeowners. It’s also not as expensive as it used to be, either, with prices actually decreasing compared to 30 or 40 years ago.

More and more homeowners are opting for oil central heating over electric or gas systems. It’s also safer, as well, as home heating oil is not combustible in its liquid state, and if there was a leak, the smoke would be visible as opposed to clear gas.

Why CHoose Oil Patch Fuel for your Philadelphia home heating oil needs? 

Oil Patch Fuel Corporation has served the greater Philadelphia area for over 30 years.

In many cases, weather permitting, we deliver all oil the same day your order is placed. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

How much does your heating oil cost? 

The cost of our heating oil is based on several factors, which means that it fluctuates day-to-day, especially in colder months. The most up-to-date pricing can always be found on our online ordering page. 

What are the requirements for same-day delivery? 

Again, due to the nature of the industry, our same-day home heating oil delivery service requirements change on a day-to-day basis. In most cases, our customer support can advise you on the expected timeline of your delivery, and you may request any updates by calling us at 215-492-1900. In instances of severe weather, such as blizzards or ice storms, your delivery may be delayed. 

Do I have to be home for every single delivery? 

No. The only delivery in which we require homeowners to be present is the first delivery, in which our heating oil delivery drivers will inspect your tank for safety and integrity issues. 

What happens if issues are found with my heating system? 

Safety is our main concern. If there are issues with the heating oil tank or lines within your home, we will not complete the delivery until the issues are addressed. Fortunately, we do offer maintenance services or, if needed, full tank replacements. All of our services are fully-insured.
