don't run out of heating oil rhode island

In these unprecedented times, you’re probably spending a LOT more time at home than you normally do – which means it’s more than likely that you are using more heating oil than expected to keep your family comfortable.

The question is – given all that’s happening right now – how do you avoid an unexpected heating oil runout that can compound the stress of social distancing?

4 Ways to keep from running out of heating oil

  • Allow extra time for your heating oil delivery – Don’t wait until the last minute to buy heating oil – you’re probably using it more quickly than you think, putting yourself at risk for a run-out. Rather than ordering when the tank is no less than one-quarter full, consider not allowing your heating oil tank to reach less than one-third full before placing your heating oil order. Remember: at Discount Oil Brokers, you can usually get your heating oil delivered between one and three days, depending on where you live.
  • Make sure we have your correct contact information – Make sure we have your current cell phone number and email address so that we have multiple ways to contact you; this way, you won’t miss a heating oil delivery that’s been scheduled. This is a fluid situation, and we are in uncharted waters – we will update our COVID-19 page to keep you apprised of any change in our services.
  • Keep your heating equipment properly maintained – Regular, professional heating maintenance from a reputable heating service technician will help keep your furnace or boiler running at peak efficiency, which means your equipment will use less fuel. Professional service will also help spot oil leaks, performance drop-offs, and other problems before that could lead to bigger problems down the road.
