For Your Information

When delivering fuel to you for the first time, all fuel providers, will require a copy of your Comprehensive Inspection Certificate issued by a licensed technician.   This is a TSSA Mandated inspection on your entire heating system and must be done every 10 years. This keeps you protected and ensures that your equipment is working efficiently and safely at the time of the inspection.  At Foxton Fuels we have both service and delivery within the same company which means that we can take care of all your heating needs.

If you recently purchased your new home, the TSSA certificate is transferable.  Please contact your seller to obtain a copy.

As of January 1, 2013 the installation code for oil-burning equipment has been updated to require all new furnace oil tanks to be installed are required to be double bottom or double walled tanks. Single walled tanks must be installed with drip tray and an audible alarm system. Please contact our service department today for a quote on a new double walled furnace oil tank.
