Snow and packed ice make it challenging to access your home for deliveries. To ensure timely delivery of your heating oil this winter, we recommend following these simple steps:
Please clear any snow and ice from areas leading to and around your fuel fill pipe. This will help to ensure the efficient delivery of your heating oil or propane. Keeping paths clear also helps other public utility companies or public safety officials respond to emergencies.
This is very important! Be mindful of uncovering exhaust vents from heating systems. Vents on the sides of homes can easily become blocked by high snow, and could even result in heating system malfunctions, carbon monoxide getting into the home, and create a safety hazard. Please make sure that your exhaust vents are clear of all obstructions.
Also, exercise caution when clearing the snow from around your tank and lines so that you do not damage them.
Check the area above your tank for accumulating snow and ice which damage equipment and cause spills.
We appreciate your cooperation during this record breaking winter weather.
And remember, whatever storms winter sends our way, we're always here for you – 24/7!
