A Ridgefield, CT man and his business partner have created an app to simplify the process of buying home heating oil, according to News 12 Connecticut. Steve Williams co-founded FuelSnap, an online marketplace catering to home heating oil customers.
The idea for the company began in 2016 when the creators created a better way to keep track of heating oil, rather than relying on a float gauge or automatic home heating oil delivery, with the Smart Oil Gauge, a device that allows homeowners to track their heating oil tanks from their phones.
Smart Oil Gauge is now available in hundreds of HVAC supply houses around the country. The company’s FuelSnap also allows homeowners to check local oil prices for heating oil right in an app, or from a website, and reorder with the touch of a button. The system also sends out email and text alerts to let homeowners know when it’s time to buy more oil.
