Get Energy Star Rated Products with Polsinello Fuels

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, January 19, 2016

We always strive to provide the best products to go along with our quality service. That is why we offer our customers Energy Star rated products to ensure they have the most energy efficient equipment possible.

But, what makes a product “Energy Star” material?

Let’s start with what Energy Star is. According to, Energy Star is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.” There are several strict factors that are taken into consideration before a product is given the Energy Star sticker.

Some of these factors include:

  • Whether or not the product in question has an automatic “sleep” or “rest” mode.
  • Televisions must only use 3 Watts or less of electricity when turned off.
  • Refrigerators must be at least 15% MORE energy efficient than the “minimum federal efficiency standard.”
  • In regards to products that cost more than their less efficient counterpart, the consumer must be able to make the difference back in energy bill savings.
  • Energy consumption of the product must have the ability to be measured and tested. If you can’t test it, it can’t be approved as Energy Star.
  • Light bulbs must use at least 2/3 less energy than their less efficient counterparts.
  • And many more strict regulations!

Polsinello’s Involvement in the Community

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, January 05, 2016

As a local business, we at Polsinello Fuels Inc. are honored to have the loyalty and support of our surrounding community.

The Polsinello family enjoys doing what they can to give back to the community that has trusted our service for over 60 years. This means supporting several charities, as well as raising funds for a charity of our own to help make a difference.

Some of the charities and organizations we are proud to support are:

  • Little Leagues
  • Kiwanis
  • Commission on Economic Opportunity
  • Local Fire Departments
  • Local Police Benevolent Associations
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund
  • Sisters of Mercy
  • Various scholarships for local students
  • Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany
  • The A.L.S. Foundation
  • St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation
  • Concerns U
  • Community Hospice

In addition to supporting local charities and organizations, we created the Polsinello Foundation which provides scholarships to local students. We believe that an education is essential whether it be college courses, vocational training or a tech school. However, some programs do not offer tuition aid and scholarships the way that traditional universities do. Therefore, students attending vocational training tend to be limited when it comes to financial aid options. That’s where The Polsinello Foundation comes in!

For the past 13 years and counting, The Polsinello Foundation has raised and awarded over $100,000 in scholarships for local students pursuing vocational degrees. At our annual Golf Outing this past July, we raised $21,000 for young adults in vocational programs including:

  • Automotive Mechanics at Hudson Valley Community College
  • Hairdressing at ORLO School of Hair Design
  • Plumbing at Worcester Vocational Technical School
  • Culinary Arts at Schenectady Community College

Pellet Prices Are on the Rise – Why You Should Switch to Oil Heat

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, December 01, 2015

Have you been heating your home with wood pellets? This year, many pellet-users are switching to heating oil because the price of pellets has gone up immensely. Formerly, heating with pellets was known for being able to save you money. More recently, it has been noted that the prices of pellets have been increasing since earlier this year. Despite the fact that pellet stoves generally cost less to install than oil heaters, the price of the pellets themselves are the problem. When you combine that with shipping costs, it is clear that it is becoming more cost-effective to use oil heating systems as opposed to pellets.

Some of the benefits of heating oil include:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Energy efficient
  • Virtually unlimited supply
  • Safe (non-explosive)
  • Fast-acting
  • Economical

To learn even more about the benefits of heating oil, click here!

If you’re currently using pellets or any other type of heating system, and you’re thinking about switching to oil, contact us today to discuss your options!
