Not many people here on the North Shore want to deal with keeping an eye on the fuel gauge of their heating oil or propane tank all winter long – especially once temperatures really start dropping come January and February. Unfortunately, that’s when we’re usually burning fuel the fastest, and when the consequences of running out of fuel are greatest.
The good news is there’s an easy way to avoid the hassles of managing your fuel supply: sign up for FREE automatic propane or heating oil delivery. If you’re unfamiliar with automatic delivery, or if you’re a skeptic of this no-cost service, here are three key questions and answers that should help put your mind at ease.
How does automatic delivery work? With automatic delivery, estimate your delivery date based on your past usage and a “degree day” formula, which calculates how much heating fuel a home your size would use given current weather conditions (One degree day is allotted for each degree below 65 that the average temperature reaches in your location on a given day; for example, if the average temperature is 35 degrees, 30 degree days are added to fuel your estimate).
When your tank reaches about one-quarter full, we will schedule a delivery; there is no need to call or even look at your fuel gauge.
