Dependable Kerosene Delivery on the North Fork

Burt’s Reliable provides kerosene for Long Island homes and businesses

Do you use kerosene to keep your North Fork home or business warm?

If so, you know that it can sometimes be hard to find kerosene delivery. We invite you to take a look at Burt’s Reliable, which has long been the kerosene delivery service that so many in eastern Long Island, from Calverton to Cutchogue, know that they can count on.

Who uses kerosene on Long Island’s North Fork?

You may have thought that using kerosene for heating gave way long ago to heating oil, natural gas and propane, but there are still a lot of homes and businesses in our area that use it. And Burt’s Reliable is here to serve them.

Who uses kerosene? For one, people who own mobile homes and other homes that do not have basements. Without basements, the tank for your heating fuel must be outside. It gets cold outside here on the North Fork. That cold can create a problem if you use No. 2 heating oil, the most common heating oil.

In cold weather, heating oil can begin what is called gelling— when heating oil thickens in the cold. If heating oil gels, it can reduce or possibly even block the flow of fuel into your heating system. That can shut your system down and lead to some expensive repairs. But you won’t have that problem with kerosene, because kerosene doesn’t gel.

Kerosene’s other advantage is that it offers versatility. Not only can it run your home’s heating system, it can also be used to for fueling stoves for cooking and lanterns for lighting. That comes in handy during a power outage.

You don’t need a special tank to store your kerosene. It can be kept in the same high-quality tanks that Burt’s Reliable offers for heating oil users.
