The pandemic has changed a lot about the way we live day-to-day: many of us are working at home, studying at home, and putting off our normal winter getaway plans.
One consequence of all those changes is that most of us are spending a lot more time within our four walls than we usually do, and that has an impact on how much energy – including heating oil – we use.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to keep a close eye on your heating oil tank gauge this winter, especially if we get a visit from the polar vortex in the coming weeks. During winter, you might use a much as eight gallons of heating oil per day – or even more if temperatures reach into the teens and single digits, or if you have a large home.
It’s also important to be more cautious than usual about the amount of notice you give us for your heating oil delivery. Please make every effort to request a delivery when your oil tank is no less than one quarter full. Better yet, sign up for FREE automatic heating oil delivery from JW Pierson and let us manage your heating oil deliveries for you (automatic delivery vastly reduces the risk of a run‐out, at no cost to you).
If you already get automatic deliveries, please let us know if your lifestyle habits have changed in ways that might impact how much fuel you use so we can adjust your delivery schedule. Some changes that could affect the amount of fuel you use include:
Once we know about these changes, we can adjust your delivery estimates so you can get your fuel on time.
