Lower Temperatures AND Lower Heating Costs?!
Temperatures in New York City and on Long Island typically plummet around this time. For example, in December 2018 the daily high temperature was an unseasonal 61ºF, but in January 2019 the daily high was down to 49º and temperatures stayed much closer to freezing throughout the rest of the month.
And yet, this year hundreds of New Yorkers have found their home heating costs dropping along with the temperatures! “How can it be?” you ask. How can you keep warm during the coldest months of winter AND save on your home heating costs at the same time?
The answer is simple, and we can help. Just ask about any of these great savings:

NY Clean Heating Fuel Credit

This fuel costs about the same as regular heating oil, but it helps New Yorkers save on their energy costs by burning much cleaner and more efficiently. In addition, some Bioheat fuel users in NYC and on Long Island are eligible for a state tax credit. That’s right — your fuel purchases could lead to a bigger tax return!
