There is a lot of uncertainty in the world these days. That’s why so many of us are looking for ways to get more control of our day-to-day lives.
One of the simplest ways you can do that is by ensuring that your Southern Maine home will always have the heating oil and/or propane it needs this winter to keep you warm and cozy. Automatic Delivery from Pitstop Fuels is the answer!
When you use the traditional “Will-Call” method of ordering fuel, you are responsible for checking regularly how much propane or heating oil you have in your tank.
Here’s a reminder on how to check your tank gauge levels if you’re not already familiar:
Heating oil tank: Look for the clear plastic tube on the top of the tank. There are markings on the outside of the tube that looks like numbers you’d find on a car’s fuel gauge: F, ¾, ½, ¼, etc. Inside the tank is a red marker or a float that indicates how much oil is in the tank. If the marker or float is at the bottom of the gauge or isn’t visible, the tank is empty or almost empty.
Propane tank: Look for the round dial on your propane tank that looks like a speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 40, your propane tank is 40% full.
Running out of propane or heating oil during winter can have potentially dangerous consequences for your home—not only causing a hassle but adding unnecessary expenses, too. Your home is left cold, putting your pipes in danger of freezing on top of the lack of hot water or fuel for a fireplace or stove.
