We also have a dedicated staff of caring employees who are always ready to help you. They live in the communities they love to serve, and they understand the needs you have. Their knowledge and commitment help us to deliver not only Bioheat® fuel, but quality and value—all backed by many decades of heating oil experience. Here are five other ways we stand head and shoulders above the competition. We call it the Westmore Advantage.
Guaranteed Fuel Supply — In 1982, Westmore Fuel put a plan in place to guarantee fuel supply to its customers — even under the most extreme conditions. Our 1.2-million-gallon marine storage terminal, along with strategic supplier alliances, takes away any worry about any supply shortages. Not every fuel oil company can make this guarantee!
Environmentally friendly products — Westmore Fuel has been leading the way in providing Bioheat ® fuel, which burns cleaner, emits less pollutants and produces more BTU’s per gallon than natural gas. Read more about Bioheat vs. natural gas
Superior equipment service — All our service technicians are Westmore Fuel employees who have received the best training and certification. That means you can expect consistently expert, clean and courteous heating equipment service from our service department team.
Reducing heating costs for customers — Westmore Fuel remains committed to helping its customers reduce the cost to heat their homes. Through higher-efficiency fuels and heating oil systems, as well as the technology of smart-homes conservation, Westmore Fuel does everything we can to help customers lower their energy consumption. We also offer multiple pricing and payment options to help manage costs.
Delivering a remarkably safe heating fuel — Heating oil is not explosive — it won’t even burn if a lit match is dropped into it. An oil burner heats oil to 140 degrees and atomizes it to make it ignite. A heating oil system also cannot generate dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in the home without first emitting visible warning signs of a system malfunction. See Bioheat® vs. Natural Gas.
Westmore’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Policy
Westmore’s policy has long stressed our fundamental commitment to comply with all environmental, health and safety laws and regulations. Although 100% compliance is an operational goal, accidents of permitted levels can occur.
