Best choice is have 1 company for maintenance, and a 2nd, preferably delivery-only, for oil. Plus there is no conflict of interest for rich burn settings
This is what I do. I use a local heating/cooling outfit for the yearly boiler service, and I have three different local oil distributors that I call for price before ordering fuel oil.
I just had oil delivered today, and I ended up paying $3.87 a gallon; a few weeks ago, gasoline was cheaper, so the fuel oil would have been as well. Prices tend to bounce wildly this time of year. With the recent trend upwards, I figured I better order now rather than wait another week.--
