Heat USA provides benefits to over 80,000 members nationwide, making us the largest heating oil buying group in the United States.
Heat USA members spent over $155 million dollars on heating oil, system service and new heating equipment last year. That's a lot of buying power.
That's the value of our free service contract (market value of $200-$300) for an average consumer using 700 gallons a year.
Our buying power translates into greater savings and negotiating leverage for you.
Heat USA is endorsed to over 18,000,000 US households by hundreds of membership organizations nationally who offer our program as their exclusive energy discount benefit.
