How Rising Energy Prices Affect All of Us

How Rising Energy Prices Affect All of Us

We Know Customers Are Hurting and We Are Working on Solutions

energy prices new jerseyTake one look at the news these days, and you can see any number of factors affecting energy prices across the globe. From a still-tangled supply chain to uncertain geopolitical events, it all affects the price of fuel.

For consumers, this means higher prices on just about all energy. Gasoline costs a dollar more per gallon than it did last year. Natural gas prices have spiked more than 150%, and crude oil prices are at their highest level in seven years.

Electricity is not immune from these increases because the electric grid relies on gas-fired power plants.

JW Pierson Co. knows how much our customers are hurting because of high prices. We want to do everything we can to help.

Small Businesses and Customers are in the Same Boat

Please know that we want energy prices to go down as much as you do. When energy prices surge, local fuel companies like JW Pierson don’t make more money. We make less. Think of it like an increase in the price of coffee or milk. Your neighborhood grocery doesn’t see an increase in profits, but some Wall Street investors do!

While we all hope for energy prices to decrease, our team wants to work with you to get through this challenging time.

Contact us as soon as possible if you are having trouble with your bills. We can generally find a solution for customers as long as they get in touch early.

There Are Ways to lower your Monthly Energy Expenses

While that’s nothing any of us can do to lower global energy prices, there are some tried and true steps homeowners can take to get more bang for their energy buck:

  1. Invest in a smart thermostat like the RedLINK Wireless Comfort from Honeywell that JW Pierson installs. These devices adjust your home’s temperature when utility prices are higher, saving you money on energy.
  2. Get your heating and cooling equipment tuned up. Our technicians will get your equipment working at peak efficiency, so you use less energy.
  3. Stop heat and cool air from escaping your home with additional insulation and weather stripping. Properly insulating your home can save you up to 20% annually on heating and cooling costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

We’re Always Available and Ready to Help

Anytime you want to discuss ways to reduce your energy costs and handle payments more efficiently, we are available. And rest assured, JW Pierson continues to have sufficient supply to ensure all our customers get the heating oil they need— — no matter the cost or difficulty we face.

Thank you for your understanding and loyalty during these challenging times. Feel free to contact us anytime.
