The National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) has developed an industry wide standard for safety training. Our personnel have completed the Certified Employee Training Program (CTEP) which was developed by the NPGA. The safety of our customers is our first priority. Propane, when installed and handled properly, is a safe, clean and efficient fuel for every home!

Why it’s Soooo Good to Have Propane

Matt Polsinello - Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Do you currently use propane or oil? Propane is a popular source of energy in homes and is one of the newest services Polsinello offers to customers. Here are some of the benefits of using Propane in your home:


Propane is over 10% more efficient than oil equipment. Your new propane furnace will be up to 98% efficient versus an oil furnace which is only 87% efficient.


Reduce your carbon footprint with less greenhouse gases than oil equipment. Propane is an approved alternative fuel according to the Clean Air Act of 1990.


Save space with smaller and efficient equipment. Say goodbye to your oil tank! Propane equipment is generally smaller, and can sometimes hang neatly on a closet or basement wall.


Enjoy all propane has to offer – cooking, drying, hot water, ambience and heating. It is more than a heating fuel – it can power your appliances, including your fireplace!


Now is the time to buy, 0% interest for up to 12 months. Installations are eligible for 0% interest financing through Polsinello Fuels. Call us today! Offer expires 3/31/13 and cannot be combined with any other offers. Offer available exclusively to new Polsinello propane customers.

Cold Weather Alert: Tips for Keeping Your House Warm During the Winter

Matt Polsinello - Friday, January 25, 2013

Winter is in full force, but don’t let the cold weather get you down. It’s important to take the necessary steps to protect your home from the frigid conditions.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind for those cold nights:

Maintain Your Heating System

Maintaining the heating system in your house is just as important as maintaining your car. If your heating system is in need of service, be sure to call immediately. Polsinello Fuels is available 24 hours a day for emergency service. In the middle of winter, no heat can cause frozen pipes and a host of other problems in your home.  

Check Oil & Propane Levels   

Don’t wait until the very last minute to order heating oil and propane. This could potentially leave you without heat on the coldest nights. Polsinello Fuels offers Automatic Delivery as an option for oil and propane. This enables you to go on with your daily schedule, while Polsinello monitors and managers your heating oil or propane supply. Let us worry about your oil & propane deliveries! 

Don’t Block Heating Vents or Radiators

Blocking heating vents and radiators will limit your heating system’s ability to warm your home and reduce your home’s overall efficiency. During the coldest days of the winter, heating systems need every bit of help they can get. Don’t let your furniture, children’s toys or drapery get in the way!
