We created the app, you ordered the oil, and we brought the heat. And now we’re ready to spread our wings – err – trucks into Manchester, NH; and Portland and Biddeford, ME.
Yes – it’s true! We’re expanding. We brought the heat so often in our first season that we got the green light to take it to the next level. More bright "rorange" (red - orange) trucks, more hardworking and friendly drivers, and way more comfortably warm living rooms.
We started this company a year ago with a goal of saving people time, money and aggravation by bringing low-priced heating oil into the Smartphone Age. The idea was to get rid of the need to scour the web for a price, try to find a phone number or call the oil company between 8 and 5. With the Heatable app you can order anywhere, anytime, online or with our smartphone app. Just Tap, Tap, Swipe and we Bring the Heat in our freshly painted, bright rorange trucks.
During our first year we limited our market area to the Seacoast of NH and Kittery, ME, because we wanted to perfect our technology and marke sure we could deliver – not just the oil (we knew we could do that) but also the experience that we had envisioned for our customers. But by the end of our first year, we had really gained traction in York County and Seacoast, NH, and the 5-star reviews and recommendations were rolling in. Like, really rolling.
We couldn’t believe it. We had never seen an oil company with so many reviews – let alone happy ones. We. Were. Psyched.
And then came the requests – when are you delivering here? There? Everywhere? It was hard to say no but we had to stick to our plan – so we took down the zip codes from everyone who made a request and started mapping out our expansion.
And now, it’s go-time again. We’ve added 15 new towns to our delivery area and are already bringing the heat in Manchester, Bedford, Goffstown, Hookset, Londonderry and Derry New Hampshire and Arundel, Biddeford, Kennebunk, Oguinquit, Old Orchard Beach, Saco, and Wells with plans to continue to expand. (See where we deliver).
While these are home heating oil markets that have a LOT of competition, no other company makes it as easy (and fun!) to order oil as Heatable does – so we’re crossing our fingers (and toes and trucks) in hopes that the response in our new markets is as warm (hehe, see what we did there?) as it was in our launch market.

Heatable is a new kind of low-priced heating oil company hatched by a small group of forward-thinking and tech-savvy heating oil professionals. Founded in 2018, the company is based in South Berwick, Maine, and currently delivers heating oil to residential customers in the Seacoast of New Hampshire and Southern Maine. Customers can place orders and manage their account whenever and wherever they need to through the company’s proprietary and easy-to-use online and mobile app. Heatable is owned by Dead River Company, a 110-year veteran in the full-service heating oil and propane industry. Heatable operates independently and is focused on heating oil customers who prefer to manage their own heating oil orders and take care of their own equipment maintenance.
