“Bringing the Heat” to Midcoast Maine Since 1946
Oil is highly stable and one of the safest and most reliable sources of residential and commercial heat. Number 2 heating oil contains 139,000 Btu’s per gallon, making it a powerful source of heat during Maine’s cold winter months.
“As a builder and home owner, I have worked with Colby & Gale for over 10 years. Prompt and courteous service provided by skilled technicians is their standard.”

Former Project Manager, The Knickerbocker Group
Heating Oil is Efficient
Modern oil heat systems are highly-efficient and since oil burns at a high temperature it heats your home and water very quickly. Reports show new, energy efficient oil heating systems, when properly maintained can save homeowners as much as 50 gallons of fuel each year.
Heating Oil is Environmentally Friendly
Newer oil-burning systems are much more environmentally friendly than older designs. Since 1970, oil burners have become 95 percent cleaner and markedly more durable as technology improves. Plus, unlike older oil systems, new oil heating systems produce no soot, dirt, or air contaminants.
Heating Oil is Popular & Safe
Nearly 70% of homes in Maine heat with oil. Heating oil is safe. It takes an advanced high-tech burner to ignite the oil. If you drop a match into heating oil it will go out as if dropped into water. Heating oil must be vaporized before it will ignite or burn.
