Company Fuels Southern N.H.

Ciardelli Fuel Co. has served the region for 61 year

MILFORD – In the past 10 to 15 years, Ciardelli Fuel Co. has made a lot of strides with adding on services and qualified employees, allowing them to be the home heat and comfort specialists they are today.

Operating out of Milford, this third-generation family owned and operated company has been keeping its customers warm in the winter and cool in the summer for 61 years.

Matthew Ciardelli, president of Ciardelli Fuel Co. said, “A lot of people here are full-time, and that full-time support allows us to meet demands like in the cold weather we had.”

He said the company is just shy of 60 employees, and just opened a location in Keene last year. They’re currently servicing the southern part of the state, reaching as far east as Manchester, servicing 58 towns. For the customers they serve in that area, Ciardelli said, “We strive toward providing the best service all the way through from the time a customers calls to when the job is complete,” adding that, “We set ourselves aside as a full-service vendor and focus on the customers experience.”

As far as services go, Ciardelli offers 24/7 emergency calls for propane leaks, propane smells, oil leaks, no-heat situations (when it is freezing out) and will typically wait until the following morning or next business day for no hot water calls, no heat situations (when it is not freezing out) and air conditioning calls.

Other services offered are propane, oil and HVAC, which include fuel oil, propane, premium diesel, kerosene, installations, hearth products and burner sales and services.

This past winter presented Ciardelli crews with the challenge of keeping up with service calls during that cold spell of subzero temperatures.

“I’m proud of the way our staff stepped up in the extreme cold. We experienced some customer growth because of it, and we’re looking forward to more in the future,” Ciardelli said.
