Is propane more expensive than heating oil?Yes. All fuels are rated based on their heat content. The unit of measure is a British Thermal Unit (BTU), which is the amount of energy needed to raise one pound of water one degree. Heating oil contains 140,000 BTUs per gallon, whereas propane contains only 91,300 BTUs per gallon.

Price Protection Programs for 2022 - 2023 Heating Season

For over 25 years, Hart & Iliff has offered a winter price protection program for our heating oil customers.  Initially, we offered both a fixed price and a capped price program.  In the last few years, we transitioned away from a fixed price, because it offers no downside protection, if the price drops.  Even though it’s been clearly disclosed, each time prices drop during the winter, customers are extremely unhappy about being locked in at a higher price.  For example, during the 2014/2015 heating season prices dropped $1.40 per gallon during the winter.  This could easily happen again this winter.

Comfort Line - Spring/Summer 2022

Unsurprisingly, we’ve received calls about two connected issues—the surge in fuel prices and supply concerns. Russia is the world’s third largest oil producer, generating approximately 11% of total world production. The Russian invasion of Ukraine shocked the energy markets, sending crude oil to record territory and spiking all energy prices. We saw increases from our heating oil suppliers of more than $1.50 per gallon in less than a week! People are also concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel. You can count on the fact that Hart & Iliff will not let you run out of oil. We have been in business for more than 130 years and have very strong relationships with suppliers and financial institutions.

"We are very pleased with the service you gave us in fixing our air conditioner. Each person who came to home was understanding and sympathetic to the situation at hand. The number of days and long hours the team worked during the one of the hottest summers on record, far exceeded our expectations. Thanks to all who worked to get our air conditioner back on-line."
