R.F. Ohl has been a family-owned and operated business since 1984, when Bobby and Brenda started the company. Their sons, Steve and Brad started working part-time, after school. The origin of R.F. Ohl started from the need to supply diesel fuel to a water well drilling rig. The well drilling rig used 150 gallons a day of diesel. Bobby decided to buy his own fuel delivery truck, since he had previously worked for a heating oil company, to control some of his fuel costs.
As he was driving to deliver fuel to his well drilling rig, people that knew him, would stop and ask, “Would you deliver heating oil to me?”. Bobby found out what was required to start delivery of heating oil and within a few weeks, he was delivering to his first customer.
Bobby’s sons Steve & Brad helped out after school and on summer vacation, working on the well drilling rig and delivering fuel. Both started working full time for Bobby in 1990. By 1996 the water well drilling business was sold in order to concentrate full time on the heating oil delivery business.
After operating from the family home for many years, Bobby opened an office at the former Eckman Lumber Building in 1999. He started selling propane space heaters and propane & natural gas fireplaces.
In early 2002, Bobby announced that he and Brenda were going to retire in a few months. He had prepared Steve & Brad to continue operating the business. Unfortunately, Bobby unexpectedly passed away from cancer in August of 2002. Steve and Brad knew that they had many customers, family, and employees that depended on them, so they continued on with the plans that Bobby had started.
By July of 2004, Steve & Brad had moved to another location on Rt 209. They started to offer oil burner service and installations.
In 2008, Steve and Brad continued their concentration on home comfort, helping their customers conserve energy. They started offering air conditioning system installations, mini-split air conditioning installation, and repair of air conditioning systems.
Brad was sidelined due to a medical condition and retired from R.F. Ohl in 2015.
In 2019, they purchased their current location in Lehighton, PA. R.F. Ohl currently services over 11,000 HVAC service, installation, and fuel delivery customers in a 50-mile radius of Lehighton. R.F. Ohl continues to "supply your energy and indoor comfort needs."
