Surner Heating Fuel Programs

In recent years, the volatility of the energy markets have affected everyone on some level. We at Surner Heating know all too well the ups and downs of the fuel oil market. Due to these inconsistencies, we have consistently offered fuel programs to our customers in Hampshire and Franklin Counties to help stabilize our customers' heating costs.

Surner has developed two different types of fuel programs, full-service and self-service, in order to best serve all of our customers. With full-service, you have the quality, service, and personal touch you have known for the last fifty years, giving you the options and choices your family needs. Surner’s self-service program is our discounted fuel company. Same Surner name, different Surner price.

We have realized that not all of our customers want our full-service amenities, which is why we have developed Surner Discount Oil, an online-based company. You order your fuel online and it’s delivered promptly to your door. It’s that simple. There are no extra services, just discounted fuel.


FUEL CONTRACT OPTIONS

Pre-Pay Fuel Plans

Fixed Price Plan

This is a locked in price plan. You will know what your cost per gallon is and be protected from any price increase that may occur over the course of the heating season. However, if the market price drops below your contracted price during the season, you are still committed to your fixed rate. Fixed Price deliveries begin on September 1st and continue until all gallons ordered are delivered.

Discount Off Market Plan

With this program, you do not lock into a fixed price. Return your signed contract for a specified amount and at the time of delivery, your account will be billed for the gallons delivered at market price less a 15 cent per gallon discount. The price will be discounted from the current market price at time of each delivery. Market Plan deliveries begin September 1st and end the following May 31st or until dollars contracted for are used.

Discount Off Market Plan with Cap Protection

You will receive a 15 cent per gallon discount off market price with a ceiling (cap). With this program, the price will be “capped” at a not to exceed price. Whichever price is lower, your discount off market price or your cap price, is what will be charged. You will have a ceiling with no floor. The best of all worlds. There is an additional cost for this insurance protection. Cap Protection deliveries begin September 1st and end the following May 31st or until gallons contracted for are used.

Should your account run out of prepaid gallons/dollars, you will be billed at the market price on the day of delivery for any gallons delivered over your prepaid amount.

Budget Plans

Surner offers 3 options for our 10-month budget plan. Estimate how much fuel you will use during the heating season multiply by the appropriate price and divide by 10 months. This allows you to make equal monthly payments instead of coming up with a large payment at the time of delivery. Payments are made from July through April and contract deliveries are made beginning September 1st.

Fixed Price Budget

This is a locked in price plan. You will know what your budget payment is each month and be protected from any price increase that may occur over the course of the heating season. However, if the market price drops below your contracted price during the season, you are still committed to your fixed rate. Fixed Price deliveries begin on September 1st and continue until all gallons ordered are delivered.

Market Price Budget

We make an educated assessment of what the price range may be this coming heating season. As the season progresses we may need to make an adjustment to your budget payment if prices increase or decrease more than anticipated. This is to ensure that at the end of the plan there will be little or no balance on your account. We also now pay 4% annual simple interest on your credit balance at the end of each month. Market Plan deliveries begin September 1st and end the following May 31st or until gallons contracted for are used.

Market Price Budget with Cap Protection

Our Budget Plan customers can also benefit from downside protection for a nominal monthly fee. Think of this as a ceiling without a floor. You will never pay higher than your predetermined cap price per gallon, but you can enjoy a savings if market prices drop, no matter how low they go! We also now pay 4% annual simple interest on your credit balance at the end of each month. This is our most popular plan and is the best of all worlds. Cap Protection deliveries begin September 1st and end the following May 31st or until gallons contracted for are used.

Should your account run out of budget gallons, you will be billed at the market price on the day of delivery for any gallons delivered over your budgeted amount.
