Fuel Run-outs: An Easy, No-Fee Solution
Besides the obvious problem of having a dangerously cold house, you’re also courting more serious issues, including frozen water pipes, a long-term mold problem, or clogged fuel lines caused by the thickened oil at the bottom of your tank. If you’re a propane user, you’ll also have to pay for a pressure test before you can restart your system.
Those are some compelling reasons to avoid a fuel runout! The question is, how do you do that?
Watch Your Fuel Supply
If you’re a Will Call customer managing your own heating oil or propane deliveries, it’s crucial to keep a close eye on your fuel gauge throughout the winter – especially when temperatures drop suddenly (the way they have been the last few weeks). The rate at which you use fuel can increase dramatically (by 40 or 50 percent, in some cases) depending on how cold it is, so be sure to make monitoring your fuel tank part of your weekly routine.
Of course, if you don’t want to go through that hassle, there is an easier and FREE alternative to will call delivery: automatic delivery from FSi.
