Most people have a lot on their plate these days, with a full agenda of school, work, after school, after work and even holiday activities jamming up their calendars and keeping them on the run.
When you’re living inside of a nonstop to-do list like that, it’s easy to forget to check the gauge on your heating oil tank; when a sudden cold snap hits, you could find yourself on the wrong end of a no-heat emergency.
Being without heat during winter in Connecticut is not fun. Unfortunately, it’s not the only problem or cost that can arise from a fuel run-out. For one thing, you’ll have to pay for an emergency fuel delivery; for another, dredging up the sludge from the bottom of your oil tank can wreak havoc on your fuel lines.
The bottom line is the running out of heating oil (or propane) is something you want to avoid. The good news is that you can make run-outs much less likely when you sign up for automatic delivery from Hocon.
With automatic delivery, we’ll estimate your fuel usage using advanced computer modeling based on your past usage and the current weather (measured in “degree days” for a home of your size in our area). When your tank reaches about one-quarter full, we will schedule your delivery.
That’s it – no more fuel gauge reading or calling in for an oil delivery.
Want another big perk? As an automatic delivery customer, you will receive priority service during periods of high fuel demand; as a Will Call customer, you may have to wait for your heating oil delivery.
There is no fee charged for automatic delivery because it benefits us, too: if we know when you need heating oil, we can schedule our delivery routes more efficiently, which means we can serve more customers and avoid having to divert crews to deal with emergency run-outs.
