Buying or Selling a Home with Home Heating Oil

Buying or Selling a Home with Home Heating Oil 

If you are buying or selling a home that is oil heated, make sure to spend some time speaking with the heating oil dealer.  They can tell you more about:

Equipment History & Service 

The home’s oil heat provider can help give the new owner information on the equipment, installation dates, service repairs and other history. They can also make informed recommendations on upgrades or system enhancements that could save you money in the future.

Equipment Upgrades 

Upgrading a heating system before the sale may make the home more desirable, thanks to lower fuel use. Upgrading after the sale will make the new homeowners more comfortable and help them save money. 

Service Contract Transfers

There are several full service heating oil dealers who will allow the transfer of an existing service contract at the time of the sale.

Final Tank Reading

Contact your heating oil dealer for a final tank reading just before closing for an accurate accounting of the value of the oil. 

Don’t forget to ask your heating oil dealer about:

  • Bioheat® Fuel

  • Emergency Services

  • Automatic Delivery

  • Service Agreements

  • Loyalty Programs

  • Conservation Tips

  • Efficiency Upgrades
