Winter Heating Tips and Recommendations
Watch Your Fuel Level: You can use much more heating oil when the temperatures dip, we recommend that you don’t let your tank go below 1/4 full
before placing your next order. During extended sub-freezing temperatures our delivery drivers are very busy so deliveries can take longer.
Please plan accordingly.
Snow Removal: Keep our delivery drivers safe, always keep your driveway and pathway to your oil fill pipe clean of snow and ice. If you have an
in-ground tank, please mark it for us, sometimes it is dark when we deliver. Plan ahead, order your oil before an upcoming snowstorm.
Emergencies: If you get to the point where you know you are going to run out of oil before your delivery arrives, supplement your oil supply
before you run out. It will avoid inconvenience and sometimes expensive start-ups... and more importantly, keep you warm. You can add other
fuels from the distillate family to your oil tank... diesel fuel (either on-road or off-road) or kerosene (either clear or dyed). While these
fuels will be more expensive than heating oil, they all burn safely in your oil burner. A good rule of thumb for most homes is five gallons/day during cold weather.
