Kerosene Delivery

Our WinterGuard fuel provides affordable heat for homes that use kerosene in New York, Vermont and Massachusetts

The winters in the upper Hudson Valley, the Adirondacks, the Green Mountains and other parts of the Main-Care Energy service region can become downright arctic. Many of our customers have outdoor heating fuel tanks or mobile homes and need fuel that can stand up to extreme temperatures.

If you fall into this category, you probably know how difficult it is to find a dependable, responsive kerosene delivery partner. You don’t have to look any further than Main-Care Energy. With nearly a century of experience serving homes in Albany, elsewhere in the Hudson Valley, and in Western Vermont and Western Massachusetts, we know how to meet the challenges of delivering heating fuel in icy, snowy conditions. Plus, we carry WinterGuard, an ultra-clean kerosene alternative that keeps your home’s system cleaner and running more efficiently, all while withstanding weather extremes in exterior fuel tanks.

What is kerosene?

Kerosene is a transparent liquid fuel derived from crude oil. Produced by refining at extremely high temperatures, kerosene has a much lower “gel point” than heating oil. This means that it can withstand sustained sub-freezing temperatures without thickening and causing issues with heating equipment.

While the term “kerosene” came into use in the 19th century with Abraham Gesner’s patenting of the distilling process in 1854, the product has existed in various forms since the 16th century. It was produced for a time from coal oil and was a more affordable alternative to whale oil for lamplight. It has long had a role in heating and cooking.

Much kerosene use has diminished since the emergence of natural gas, propane and electricity in American homes, but many mobile homes and residences with outdoor tanks still use it. Kerosene also functions as a commercial lubricant, solvent, cleanser and jet fuel.
