Rhoads Energy – an employee owned company was founded in 1917, when Jerome H. Rhoads began selling kerosene from the back of a rail car in Lancaster PA. As times changed, so did our products and services. We are now a full service company that can meet all of your heating and air conditioning needs: from heating oil, natural gas, and propane, to equipment installation and commercial fueling.
Since our founding, the Rhoads Energy Family of Companies has been in continuous operation as a family-owned, locally-based provider of heating and cooling services. Choose Rhoads >

100 years - what it means to us. It’s a story about people — thousands of customers served and hundreds of employees through the decades, who raised families and supported our community. It’s a story of a family-owned company that has stayed true to core values for a century – and a story we’re proud to share.
True to Our Roots. We work where we live, so we’ve gotten to know our customers – often through several generations. It’s no secret that people in our region value personal relationships. Our customers appreciate that they can have a real conversation with anyone on our team – even our CEO. That personal touch sets us apart.
Focus on Service. Our core business involves energy. But we recognize our real impact centers on the comfort of our customers. To succeed, we emphasize strong service and the development of programs that actually make it easier to do business with us.
Value Our Team. We learned decades ago that our employees are the key to continuity and longevity, so we hire and keep good people. Our team has responded with loyalty; average staff tenure is longer than 10 years, and we’ve been honored as one of the Best Places to Work in PA.
Involved in the Community. For decades, we've placed a premium on giving back. We support a range of charitable initiatives, from United Way to local youth sports. We’re even prouder to support our own team members who volunteer their own time and talents for community-building efforts.
