HeatingOil.com and Heat USA (heatusa.com) are the same company with different names and different 800 numbers. Same CEO, employees and address. They are nothing what they claim to be. HeatOil.com and Heat USA represents itself as a Consumer Advocate Company. Supposedly servicing its paying member at Heat USA. HeatingOil.com is free, getting you the lowest price on fuel and heating equipment. Not true, don't believe it. Go see their website. Do they list oil prices you should be paying? No. Call their customer service. Ask them what you will be paying. They won't tell you. HeatingOil.com says, trust us to get you a lower price. Don't do it. You'll be paying so much more. I paid close to a $1.00 more per gallon for heating oil. HeatingOil.com says they'll save you hundreds of dollars on heating equipment. I paid close to $2,000.00 more as a member of Heat USA. So to all my fellow homeowners please do your homework, be your own consumer advocate and you will see why I say "Stay Away from Heat USA and HeatingOil.com."

I signed up with Frank Bros. Fuel Co., Bay Shore, NY for my heating oil and service of my heating equipment in February of 2009. It took Frank Bros, until October 2009 to come to my home to inspect and tune-up my boiler (as old as the house is, 20 years) and separate oil fired hot water tank (8 years old). Within 24 hours of this wonderful tune-up (I have one done every year) my working water tank burst causing a foot of water throughout my basement (24' X 46'). Frank Bros. then sends their equipment sales manager and tells me the best way to go is a new boiler with a reserve tank which will cut down my oil consumption by 30%, cost $6,000.00. I have the boiler and tank replaced with all new everything. I find out 6 months later I could have done the same thing for $4500.00. So, not only did Frank Bros. cause my water tank to burst they over charged me $1500.00. The icing on the cake is now my oil consumption is higher then it has ever been in the 10 years owning this house. Frank Bros. website and radio adds all proclaim "Honest People Providing Honest Service". Does anyone see that at my home? So, to all my Long Island neighbors, please don't believe Frank Bros. Fuel Co. You might be their next victim.

Businesses at MerchantCircle can and will remove any negative comments or reviews at this website. This is very unfair to the consumer who is not able to read the negative reviews that the businesses do not what consumers to read. Try writing a negative review at their website: merchantcircle.com, it will be eliminated within days by the business it was written about. Try to call their 800 number from their website: merchantcircle.com. 800-305-9203. It always says this business is temporary closed or want to charge you $34.95 to talk to them. Consumers need to stand up to these so call consumer advocate websites otherwise we the consumer will get taken and scammed into thinking these businesses have only wonderful reviews and do business with them. Stay away from MerchantCircle.
