When is the Best Time to Fill Your Fuel Tank?
Why Fall Is the Smartest Time To Schedule a Delivery
Even as you enjoy the last weeks of summer, the pace is starting to pick up. Kids are heading back to school for sports, and schedules are filling up for September and beyond. That to-do list of fall season prep is starting to get a little longer, too.
This year, as a part of those to-do’s, make sure you place an order a fuel delivery before we get too deep into the season. Why’s that? There are a few good reasons:
- It’s the “off” season. Propane and heating oil prices traditionally rise as demand increases—and that demand is highest in the late fall and winter months. Early autumn is largely considered a “shoulder” season between these periods of peak demand—meaning that early fall is often the best times to save money on your tank refills. You can also save by enrolling in our EZ Pay Budget Plan, which keeps bills manageable no matter what happens with prices.
- The weather is still mild. We usually see our first frost by mid-October, but sometimes it can come as early as late September. Schedule your fill up now and you’ll be ready for any sudden weather shifts. With weather seeming less predictable by the day, you don’t want an unexpected deep freeze to catch you unprepared. No-heat emergencies can be costly and are no joke! You’ll want to have a full tank of fuel on-hand to keep your family safe and warm.
- It helps you extend the season—for less. Late summer and early fall can be glorious. Whether you’re planning to fire up your propane grill for those lingering balmy nights, spend a cozy night by your fireplace, or enjoy your propane-heated spa for a luxurious soak, you’ll need plenty of oil or gas to deliver comfort now—and into the cold weather months. You can also take things off your to-do list for good when you sign up for automatic deliveries or our wireless tank monitoring services that help you save even more time and money.
