Prep For Winter with a Heating Oil Delivery

5 Ways to Make Sure Your Winter Is Warm and Hassle-Free

heating oil Ridgefield, ct Don’t wait until the first frost: Fall is the time to make easy preparations to make sure you are warm and comfortable all winter. Filling up your heating oil tank is a good place to start.

There are plenty of smart reasons to schedule a heating oil delivery before the deep cold hits. One reason is that you might be able to save a little money. As temperatures fall, demand goes up, and prices increase. Filling your tank now may help you avoid an expensive fill up later in the season.

It’s also a great item to knock that item off your to-do list—for two reasons. Fall is a busy time of year, and as it gets closer to the holidays the pace doesn’t slow down. Filling up your tank now means you won’t have to think about it—or worry about whether you’ve got enough oil to get through an unexpected polar vortex or nor’easter. Another reason not to wait to order fuel is timing: When a storm or extreme cold is in the forecast, suddenly everyone is ordering heating oil. We’ll never leave you in the cold, but a full tank now means you don’t have to think about a snowstorm next month.

Your Winter Prep Checklist

Having a full tank of heating oil is a great way to start the season, but there are other easy steps you can take to make sure you stay warm and comfortable all winter.

  1. Get a tune-up. It ensures your system is running at peak efficiency—which can lower heating costs by as much as 10%. It also helps prevent breakdowns. Have a service contract with us? A tune-up is included in your plan.
  2. Don’t have a service plan? With our Essential and Essential Plus plans, you’ll enjoy priority service, 20% off repairs, tank monitoring, plus that seasonal tune-up.
  3. Sign up for automatic deliveries. This free service eliminates the need to call for deliveries and makes runouts a thing of the past.
  4. Keep fuel bills manageable. Our Budget Pay plan spreads fuel costs over 12 months, eliminating big winter bills. We also offer pre-pay and price cap options at the start of each season.
  5. Prep for safe deliveries. Be sure the path to your fill pipe is free of debris and branches, and clear a path (about a foot wide) after a snowfall. Marking the location of your underground tank with a flag or wide ribbon makes it easier for our crews to find. And please keep in mind that our trucks need a 9- to 10-foot-wide path to maneuver safely—and we cannot deliver fuel if your driveway isn’t plowed and free of ice. Marking the edges makes it easier to navigate, especially on steep driveways. Remember, just because you can get your car down your driveway doesn’t mean our 15-ton fuel truck can make it too.
