Why Now is the Best Time to Fill Up Your Heating Oil Tank

If you want to keep your home comfortable and safe when the winter runs around, you’re going to want to start off the season with a full tank of heating oil. But when should you be buying that oil? You might think that you should wait and purchase it shortly before you’re going to need it–but if you’re buying oil as-needed instead of relying on an automatic oil delivery service, then there’s no better time to purchase than now, as the season changes from summer to fall.

Today, The Oil Peddler will explain why you should think about getting ahead of your heating oil delivery in the Cape Cod, MA area. Continue reading our blog post to learn why now is the best time to fill up your heating oil tank.

Why Order Your Heating Oil Now?

Avoid Winter Prices

The cost of heating oil varies with demand, which is one of the main reasons to choose as needed heating oil delivery over automatic delivery—you can pick your prices! As winter gets closer, or after it arrives, everyone needs heating oil. When your neighbors want heating oil at the same time as you, the prices go up. Ordering now, before they’ve starting thinking about heating, will save you money.

More Convenient Delivery Times

By ordering well in advance of the cold season, you have a lot more leeway in when you receive your delivery. If you’re tight on time and don’t want to have to stress a schedule, ordering early lets you set the time and date. Once winter hits and delivery times get stricter to meet all the requests, you won’t have that luxury.

Fall Can Get Cold Too

As summer gives way to fall, it’s not at all uncommon for Cape Cod to start throwing the occasional chilly night at you. You can never be completely certain that your home isn’t going to end up feeling the chill, and this can lead to a truly terrible night or two if you run out of whatever was left of the previous winter’s supply heating oil. Instead of trying to guess when you’ll need oil, it’s best to go ahead and get stocked up for the season ahead.

Special Delivery Deals Let You Save

To maintain sales throughout the off-season, you can often find great deals on inexpensive oil delivery, or deals with extra benefits you might not get in the winter. Filling up your tank today might save you even more than mere demand and price fluctuations would suggest.

Keep Your System Running Healthy

Heating system costs aren’t limited to the cost of burning oil; you need to pay for upkeep and repairs over time too. A heating oil system without oil can accumulate moisture and corrode, or allow buildup in fuel lines, both of which can lead to dramatically shortening its service life or forcing you to pay for costly repairs. Keeping the tank full will end up saving you money in the long term even if you didn’t get a good deal on the oil, even if you don’t end up needing it for the fall.
