There are so many benefits to Oilheat:
- Oilheat is a great value: Oilheat has a long history as the value leader in New York - and has cost less than natural gas for the majority of the past 20 years.
- Oilheat means full service: Downey Energy is a full-service Oilheat and energy company. We help our customers get the most value for their energy dollars with 24-hour emergency service, comfort system upgrades, budget plans, service plans and price protection.
- Oilheat is safe: Oilheat is non-explosive and doesn't ignite at room temperature. It is stored safely inside a tank on your property.
- Oilheat is environmentally friendly: Changes in fuel composition are leading Oilheat to a cleaner, greener future. New York State requires that all Oilheat be "ultra-low sulfur" - producing fewer emissions than ever before. Future blends of renewable Bioheat® fuel and reduced-sulfur oil "may well become the preferred fuel for lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S.," according to the Energy Research Center.
- Oilheat is reliable: There is no need to worry about world supply of crude oil - with over 70 oil-producing countries, the U.S. is not dependent on any one source for our supply. In addition, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in the United States has a capacity of over 727 million barrels - the world's largest emergency crude oil stockpile.
For every season and every reason, nothing beats propane. Downey Energy delivers propane, and installs and services propane equipment. We also offer our customers two comprehensive propane service plans and a propane-fired water heater service plan.
Propane is "exceptional energy" for many reasons:
- Propane is versatile: It can be used to power so many things: home heating systems, water heaters, stoves and ovens, fireplaces, barbecues, hot tubs, garages, clothes dryers, swimming pools, outdoor lighting, generators and much more.
- Propane is economical: Propane is competitively priced, and has consistently cost much less than electricity.
- Propane is efficient: Propane home heating systems can be up to 95 percent efficient. They make more heat with less fuel, and they're especially more efficient than electric heat pumps.
- Propane is dependable: Propane can be stored safely in a tank on your property, and since it's off the grid, it works when and where other energy sources do not.
- Propane is clean: Propane has long been recognized as a "green" energy source. By using propane, you can help cut emissions and protect the environment.
- Propane is safe: The propane industry has developed strict codes and regulations, and required preventive maintenance programs ensure that homeowners stay as safe as possible.

Downey is one of the few local suppliers of kerosene. Kerosene is used for many different needs, such as heating mobile homes and trailers. It is particularly well suited to outdoor storage because it resists "gelling up" and usually remains available to the heating system even on the coldest nights.
