Winter may seem months away. But it’s never too early to think about keeping your home-heating costs under control. While heating oil prices came down compared to last year, and have begun to moderate, there’s no sure way to guarantee that they won’t spike again. There are so many variables that can affect the price of heating oil—from geopolitics to the weather. That’s why we offer several ways to help make sure you’re protected from price volatility. Think of it as a flu shot for heating costs: Whichever way prices go next winter, you’ll be protected from big fluctuations, no matter which option you choose.
Learn about our heating oil payment plans and discover the best option for your family.
This plan is always our most popular, even when fuel costs are low. That’s because it can potentially cut winter bills nearly in half. We use an average based on your past heating oil or kerosene use to spread your costs evenly over 10 months. That make it easier for you to budget your expenses. You’ll avoid unexpected high invoices, no matter how cold it gets or how much fuel you use.
If we have a particularly harsh winter or prices spike, we’ll adjust your payments so you don’t get hit with a large balance in the summer. Likewise, if it’s a mild winter, we can adjust and reduce your payments: The point is to help you save while avoiding big fluctuations.
With this plan, you buy your all your heating oil or kerosene at the start of the season. You get to take advantage of lower off-season pricing, and eliminates the worry about the price of fuel going up. Your price is locked in until you use up your pre-purchased amount of fuel, or after April 30, whichever comes first.
Our Fixed Price Program for heating oil is exactly what it sounds like: We agree on a fixed price ahead of the heating season and when you sign up, you’re locked in at that price. No matter what happens with fuel prices, your price won’t go over the fixed amount. Enroll now. [link tk]
