Since Christmas Eve in 1948, Oehlert Bros. has built a reputation of being a heating oil delivery service that people in Eastern Pennsylvania can count on for prompt and professional heating oil delivery.
We’ve not only stayed in business, but have grown and expanded, by sticking to the core values we’ve had since Bob and Paul Oehlert started Oehlert Bros. in an 1865 farmhouse that remained their headquarters for 50 years. Those values are providing reliable heating oil delivery, honest dealing and building relationships with our customers through outstanding personal service.
How do those values from more than 70 years ago translate into what we offer twenty-first-century customers? Here’s how:
What makes heating oil a great fuel source for heating your eastern Pennsylvania home? Picture a frigid January day. When you come in from the cold, you want to get warm and you want to get warm fast. Heating oil gets your home warm faster than any other fuel source.
And that’s just the beginning of what heating oil offers. Today, heating your home with oil isn’t what it was like a generation or two ago.
Thanks to technological advances, oil heating systems have become markedly more energy efficient. How much more energy efficient? Today’s high-efficiency oil heating systems can reach Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings of almost 95 percent. With more energy-efficient heating systems and technology, such as programmable thermostats, your heating oil dollars will go a lot further!
If you still think of oil heating as smelly, sooty and smoky, it’s time to take a look at today’s oil heating! Today’s heating oil is more environmentally friendly, as sulfur content has been greatly reduced and biofuels made from renewable resources, such as plants and used cooking grease are being added.
Perhaps you’ve gotten a flyer or seen an ad for some new heating oil discounter. They bait with a low price, but you have no idea what you’ll really get. Can they guarantee they’ll have a supply of heating oil so you can trust them if you need emergency delivery? Probably not. Do they offer equipment service? If they do, it’s through some subcontractor you don’t know. Will they even still be in business in a few months? Maybe, maybe not.
While fly-by-night heating oil “discounters” come and go, Oehlert Bros. remains a heating oil and service provider you can count on to be there for you.
From Knauertown to Norristown, Phoenixville to Pottsgrove, Oehlert Bros. provides reliable, safe and courteous delivery of heating oil. Get in touch with us to learn more about our services and become an Oehlert Bros. customer!
