Adding "New Technology" in the '30s
When fuel oil began replacing coal as the primary home heating source in the Worcester area in the 1930s, ckSmith changed with the times, adding fuel oil delivery to our customer services. Services for converting from coal heat furnaces to oil, installation of Oilheat systems in new homes and buildings, and the services to support oil-heating systems were added to meet customer needs.
