What You Need to Know about Automatic Oil Delivery

If you keep your Cape home warm with reliable heating oil, you probably already have heard about the valuable benefits of automatic delivery. But do you really know the ins and outs? Find out the major differences between automatic delivery and will call and why so many MA homeowners choose to leave their fuel supply to the experts.

How Does It Work?

We use a Johnson Degree Day Meter to track outdoor temperatures every 15 seconds. Using this data along with fuel usage history, we are able to create a custom delivery schedule and accurately estimate when it’s time to fill your tank. You will receive efficient deliveries without even picking up the phone!

Automatic Delivery vs. Will Call

It is always important to weigh your options when making choices for your home comfort and household spending. When it comes down to it, the benefits of automatic delivery outweigh will call significantly:

Automatic Delivery

  • Total convenience
  • More efficient fill-ups
  • Greater cost savings
  • Less chance of running out of fuel
  • Custom delivery schedule
Will Call

  • Order fuel as need based on daily rates

The Bottom Line

Automatic delivery is the best way to make staying warm simple. Customers that sign up gain peace of mind, save money, and enjoy complete convenience. With your tank levels closely monitored the likelihood of a no-fuel emergency is much lower, but not completely impossible. Automatic delivery customers are still responsible for checking tank gauges every so often and must inform the energy provider of any changes that might affect fuel usage, like an increase in household size or property additions. Running out of fuel can cause unnecessary safety risks and potential damage to your equipment.
