Premium Heating Oil. Ultra Comfort.

Home heating oil is safe, environmentally friendly, and reliable—it’s a fact. That's why nearly 5.7 million homes across the country rely on heating oil as a primary heating fuel—it burns hot, and it heats efficiently. If you own one of the hundreds of thousands of homes in Southwestern and Central Pennsylvania relying on oil as your main heating source, look no further than Shortway Service, Inc. for mistake free, fast service.

Better Than “Ordinary” Oil.

Shortway Service, Inc. only uses Ultra Heat Premium Heating Oil because it has a technically superior additive that helps prevent the formation of sludge, water and algae in your fuel storage tanks. Our customers benefit because less sediment means nozzles, screens and electrodes stay clean—keeping your equipment running better and burning fuel more efficiently. That lowers your fuel bills, reduces the need for repairs, and it costs no more than ‘ordinary’ heating oil!

Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit

Through 2023, homeowners can claim a FEDERAL tax credit as part of the the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit, renamed and enhanced as part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

Starting in January 2023 and each year through 2032, eligible households can claim a tax credit of 30 percent of the cost of qualified energy efficiency projects, up to $1,200 per year.

Annual tax credits will apply for specific improvements, including $600 for natural gas, propane or oil water heaters and $600 for natural gas, propane, or oil furnaces or hot water boilers.

In addition, consumers can get a $2,000 credit for electric heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, biomass stoves, and boilers. The tax credit for installing heat pumps or heat pump water heaters does not count towards the annual $1,200 limit.

This new annual limit, available for the next decade, means you can plan multiple upgrades and improvements and spread the costs and incentives according to your home energy budget.
