Convenience At Your Doorstep

admin September 15, 2017

It may be a little too early to fret about another frigid winter, but it’s not too early to prepare for it. While we can’t promise an unlimited supply of hot cocoa and reruns of ‘A Christmas Story’, we can help you stay warm with an uninterrupted supply of fuel even in the nastiest of weather conditions.


Propane to the Rescue!

admin August 17, 2017

Propane is the hero of home fuel! Its uses vary from heating systems to cooking to pool heaters, often enabling homeowners to run almost their entire home on one source of energy. Thanks to North Shore Oil’s automatic propane delivery, there’s one more thing that propane can do to make your life easier – show up in time to save the day!


One of the benefits of using heating oil to safely fuel your home comfort is having a supply close by. However, having a storage tank on your property requires that you watch out for any signs of problems before they turn into costly repairs or cleanups.


Stay Safe With North Shore Oil

All year long, propane is the fuel of choice for grills, pool heaters, fire pits and other home appliances. Having your propane stored right on your property is one of the benefits of being a North Shore propane customer. As with any fuel, however, it’s important to know the proper way to react in the rare occurrence of a leak. By following the proper protocol, you can keep your home, family and equipment safe.


Did you know that 80 percent of the year’s fuel usage takes place within three to four months? There is a way to take control of your winter heating bills with the various payment options offered by North Shore Oil


What you lack in control over the weather outside, you can make up for with control over your energy usage inside during the dog days of summer. Here are some energy conservation tips from North Shore Oil to cool things off a bit.


Spring Into … Winter ?!?!

admin March 14, 2017

Here we are in the middle of March. While baseball teams take part in spring training exercises in sunny Florida or Arizona, we in Oswego County are looking at a few more weeks of sub-freezing low temperatures … some days even sniffing single digits! If you were hoping to ease your heating equipment out of its seasonal duty, not so fast! Looks like we’re going to need that heat a little while longer. And whatever fuel you need to stay warm during the cold spell, North Shore Oil has you covered!


Automatic Penguin Pilot

North Shore Oil offers the convenience of auto delivery for both heating oil and propane because we understand that you have enough on your plate without having to worry about keeping track of your fuel level on a regular basis.


Last weekend’s lake-effect snow gusts blanketed our region with the white stuff pretty quickly. Fortunately, Mother Nature has already melted much of it away. Next time we might not be so lucky, though. With January here and winter in full effect, now is the time we like to remind folks in our area about some of the steps they can take to ensure reliable fuel deliveries when they’re needed most.


Last month we offered some valuable tips to lower your energy costs this winter without lowering your comfort level. Here are seven more cool tips from the U.S. Department of Energy that will help you conserve both energy and cash this holiday season.


Energy Saving Ideas for Winter

Are you looking for ways to lower your heating costs without lowering your comfort level … or emptying your wallet? Read on for winter energy savings ideas from PopularMechanics.com, U.S. News & World Report, and energy.gov.


Like our surfing penguin who stays down for anything, heating oil expenses for this winter are expected to remain on the low end of the spectrum. That’s the word, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). The EIA’s recent Winter Outlook predicts that heating oil expenditures will increase by 38% compared to last winter, but still remain below normal.


The Propane Education & Research Council has a new spokesperson … or should we say spokes-animal? It’s Blue the Dog, a cheerful, loveable and energetic canine who trails his “owner,” as he delivers propane to the customers of a local independent fuel dealer. Sound familiar?


To escape the summer heat, New York boat owners often take to the waters. Whether your outing is a leisurely weekend puddle jump or a weeklong retreat, North Shore Oil Company is here to help fuel your maritime voyage with two premium marine fueling options.


If there’s one thing the last few years have proven, it’s that the weather can be unpredictable. The dramatic week-to-week shifts in temperature can throw your heating bills for a loop, and planning your finances around uneven payments can be tricky. Wouldn’t it be easier to pay one even and predictable monthly payment instead of paying for all your fuel during the winter months? With a North Shore Oil Budget Plan, you can.


As a North Shore Oil customer, you know better than most that nothing beats the versatility of propane. The “exceptional energy” you get from North Shore Oil is very safe to use and store over periods of time. Still, we’d rather be safe than sorry, and we place the well-being of you and your family at the top of our list of priorities. Below are six safety tips to remember in the unlikely event of a leak.


Stay Inside – Pay Online!

As anybody who’s spent a winter in Oswego County knows, it can get awfully cold around these parts. That’s why North Shore Oil has Northern and Central New Yorkers covered with our very own residential heat wave to help you stay cozy, even when howling winds and heavy snowfall have other ideas. So when it comes time to pay your home energy bills, why would you want to leave your summer-in-February sanctuary?


Our wide range of home comfort products and services are designed to give you the cozy warmth your household needs with the flexibility and convenience your daily life demands.


With all the hectic energy of the holiday season, it would certainly be nice to ask for more hours in the day on your wish list. While that’s a miracle beyond our powers, we do have the next best thing to save you time and reduce stress: automatic heating oil delivery.


On the Road with North Shore Oil

North Shore Oil does more than fuel your home – we power you up the road, too. That’s right – in addition to carrying heating oil and propane, we supply branded and unbranded gasoline and diesel.


Catch the Heat Wave with Propane

admin October 14, 2015

Out on the surf, the perfect wave is an elusive thing; it takes patience, skill and even a degree of spiritual intuition to ride one. Just ask our surfin’ penguin mascot. Luckily, catching the heat wave in the middle of a cold upstate winter is a lot easier than hanging ten. At North Shore Oil, we call it hanging four, because that’s the number of simple steps it takes to become a North Shore Oil propane customer.


We think all our customers should be enrolled in automatic delivery, because we understand that you have a whole lot to keep track of, and your heating oil supply shouldn’t be one of them. So leave your heating oil to us! Of course, if you would rather have a hands-on approach to your home heating by watching your levels and calling for deliveries, you can always opt for our will-call delivery service.
