What is BioFuel? Does it help my system?
BioFuel is an American-made fuel primarily made from soybean oil. It decreases our carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse gas emissions to levels lower than that of even natural gas.

What Our Customers Say
We are very happy with the work.
Moyer & Sons fills and has filled a number of our needs as home owners. They retrofitted our 1947 Cape Cod with central air conditioning. Their plumbing services have replaced sump pumps, installed a water powered backup sump pump (saved the day during the Nor’easters of a few years back), replaced our on-demand water heater when the one that came with the house started leaking, maintained our furnace and A/C, replaced outdoor faucet connections, it’s a pretty long list.
Recently, they replaced our oil tank, since the one we had was most likely original to the house (1947, remember?). They arrived on time, removed the old tank from the basement, installed a new tank, tested it, and cleaned up after themselves before leaving. We are very happy with the work.
Have complete confidence in their ability to get each job correctly.
Most impressive local firm I could find to help us out a tough and desperate situation.
Just had a new furnace / boiler installed in my house. I must commend the Moyer team of Thad and Dan for an excellent job…very neat and clean installation. The old furnace was poofing soot , and yet they removed the old unit cleanly without a spec of dirt from the removal. The installation of the new unit was very professionally done and all the plumbing work looks almost like a work of modern art. Kudos to the whole Moyer team also Jim Smith in sales…who promptly came to our assistance with several alternatives and clear explanations of each different furnaces. His follow through in helping us decide and arrange financing was a great help. Looking forward to years of using Moyer Indoor / Outdoor for our furnace maintenance and as our NEW oil supplier… Most impressive local firm I could find to help us out a tough and desperate situation.. Thanks to all of you who made it a great experience.
