Now is the best time to fill your heating fuel tanks – here’s why!

It’s officially Fall here in Connecticut. After a HOT Summer, I’m sure many of us are looking forward to turning off the AC and smelling that crisp, cool Fall air, enjoying some football, and spending some quality time outside enjoying the more moderate temperatures. There’s nothing quite like Fall in New England.

Before you head out apple picking or to a Fall festival, make sure you take a minute to schedule your oil or propane delivery if you aren’t on automatic delivery.

Here’s why:

  • The prices are usually good. When the cold weather hits, the demand for heating fuel goes up, usually increasing prices for in the late fall and winter months. The months in between the extreme heat and extreme cold are typically the best times to fill you take, because people aren’t using fuel as much. Early fall is a “shoulder” season between these periods of peak demand – meaning it’s often the best time to save money on your tank refills.
  • The weather is also more predictable in early Fall. Drivers aren’t dealing with severe cold snaps or snow and ice. Filling your tank now means not having to pick up the phone along with your whole neighborhood once the cold weather strikes. You’ll already be prepared!
  • You’ll keep your family safe and warm. When the cold sets in you and your family won’t be left shivering. Cold and snowy weather can lead to you facing a no heat emergency and paying extra to have an emergency delivery. A sudden cold snap could lead to thousands of people in your area requesting deliveries – which could mean a shortage of drivers and long delivery times. Schedule your fuel tank refill in the early fall and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your family will be safe in any weather.
  • It leaves you more time for fun. When you have peace of mind that you are all set for when the weather takes a turn, you have more time to spend with the family enjoying your cozy fireplace, baking, or enjoying a nice hot bubble bath. Fill your tank now and you’ll make sure you’re good to go when it comes to fall and winter fun.
