Irving has local home and business heat offices in Brewer and South Portland. In 1972 Irving opened its first U.S. site in Bangor, ME.  We now have over 160 Irving convenience stores across Maine.

In the Community:

From Portland to beautiful beaches to hiking trails, Maine has a lot of great things to offer. When we’re not enjoying the natural beauty of Maine or helping its residents with their Heating Oil, Propane, and Diesel needs, we help support its local communities.

At Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems our Fuel the Care program provides free fuel gift cards to parents who must frequently travel to provide their children with urgent medical care, helping them focus on what’s most important – their children’s health. In addition to providing families with over $1.7 million in fuel gift cards, Fuel the Care has also provided $350,000 in funding for research into childhood diseases.

In 2011 Irving supported the Catholic Charities of Maine with their annual golf tournament, where a team of Irving employees participated in the tournament. Recently, we were at the Susan G. Komen Rally for the Cure Tournament. Supporters enjoyed a great day of golf while helping to raise over $10,000 for the battle against breast cancer.

Irving is also proud to support the Portland Pirates and the Portland Seadogs.

Choosing the Best Heating Oil and Propane Supplier for Your Business

If you are a business owner or manager, no one needs to tell you how tough the current business climate is.  The energy industry is no different and the effect it could have on your heating oil or propane supplier may give you cause for concern.

Unfortunately, over the past two years several fuel suppliers have gone out of business, leaving their customers without service. This is especially troubling when customers have paid for fuel that they never received.  With prices rising, many consumers are drawn to the discount fuel supplier.

 

Here are some things you might consider as a business owner before you decide on your fuel supplier:

  1. Can they supply all of your fuel needs in all your locations?  If your business runs on more than one type of fuel and has multiple geographies, it may be easier to have one supplier for all these fuels and locations.
  2. Are they a full service provider? Or do you need to call another vendor or two to service the equipment you use in your business everyday?
  3. Do they have a long history and will they be there for the long term?
  4. Can you call them anytime if your business has an issue? Or do you get an answering machine after hours or on weekends?  Can your business need wait until Monday morning?
  5. If you lock-in, are they purchasing your gallons at that time?

Like our residential customers, we recommend you use the Better Business Bureau as a reference for your fuel supplier. Irving Energy is proud to have earned an A+ rating on the Bureau’s reliability report. View the full report on Irving Energy.  The more you know about your energy provider, the better decision you can make for your business.  The last thing you need as a business owner is lying awake at night wondering if your fuel supplier will be there in the morning.

Welcome to Our Blog

Valuable information and good conversations – that sums up what we are looking to accomplish on Irving Energy’s Blog.Blogging Is Communicating

We wish to provide readers of our blog with relevant and valuable information on topics related to all things heating oil, propane, and diesel. Irving Energy is fortunate to be made up of hundreds of great people with boatloads of knowledge and years of experience about keeping you warm and fueling your business. If you have questions like what’s the trend in heating oil prices, is price protection a good option for me, or how should I keep my furnace running efficiently, then the team here has answers.

Right now we get to share this knowledge with our customers on the phone, via email, or face to face in our customers’ basements, driveways, and front porches – we have thousands of conversations with our customers every day. Our blog gives us another venue for these conversations.

We know how we are going to start and even have our first few posts written, but beyond that we are looking for your feedback and comments to determine where we end up. We can’t have a good conversation without at least two people involved, so we’re looking forward to talking with you.
