How do you know when to deliver to my home?
What is a degree-day?
What is a "K factor" and what does it tell you?

- Turn a basement into a bedroom or family room
- Start turning the thermostat up to a warmer temperature.
When I’m on automatic delivery and it’s really cold outside, should I call anyway when I have less than half a tank?
Do you deliver propane fuel?
Why do you fill up my fuel tank during the summer?
Condensation is water that falls off the inside surface of the tank and mixes with the fuel oil and creates sludge. If there is a large accumulation of sludge in the tank and the sludge gets pulled into the fuel line, it may cause a blocked fuel line resulting in a service call to your home.
We treat our fuel with an additive that helps break sludge into smaller particles that don’t clog the fuel lines and allows the product to be burned in your equipment. It also keeps fuel from clogging lines if your tank is located outside and we experience several days when the temperature is very cold.
If your tank has a large amount of sludge and you are experiencing plugging of your fuel lines, we can treat your tank with other products to disperse the sludge.
Another benefit of filling your tank during the summer is you don’t have to worry if the temperatures drop early in the fall, your tank is full and you won’t need a delivery on the first cold snap of the heating season.
