Most Maine oilheat consumers recognize their heating oil company as a local, family-oriented company that goes above and beyond. That’s true whether it’s delivering heating oil, providing superior service, or taking extra care of their customers—especially during the winter.
An independent consumer survey once asked Maine homeowners who heat with oil whether they trusted their heating oil company or other energy providers more. Homeowners chose local heating oil dealers by almost a four-to-one margin!
Trust is the foundation on which your Maine heating oil company operates, and they are proud to have earned the confidence of so many customers. Consider your Maine heating oil company your energy savings partner who takes pride in delivering service with a personal touch.
If there’s a no-heat situation related to equipment failure, that’s when a certified heating oil service technician steps up to help. Often, they’re available 24 hours a day in the event of a customer emergency.
Being a service technician is a job that requires a high skill set, and Maine is fortunate to have the MEMA Technical Education Center (MTEC) in Brunswick. The nonprofit center is funded by members of the Maine Energy Marketers Association (MEMA).
The center is owned and operated by more than 300 Maine and New England member companies, who help to design educational programs, donate equipment, and hire graduates from the school they themselves fund. This means that almost all MTEC graduates get hired upon graduation.
Since its founding, MTEC has helped to jump start the careers of high school graduates as well as veterans transitioning to civilian life.
If you’re looking for a well-paying job in a very stable industry with a lot of room for growth, consider MTEC’s Oil Burner Technician Training program as an option.
