The weather in Massachusetts can change drastically through the seasons—and even from day to day! Spring is perhaps the most unpredictable of all, because warmth can sweep in one day and disappear the next. It’s also thunderstorm season in our area. With this lack of predictability comes the potential for homeowners to be unprepared for home heating: but here’s the simple solution. It’s important to place year-round orders for your oil or propane deliveries so that you can be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
5 Reasons to Order a Spring Fuel Refill
1. Keeping Your Storage Tank Full through All Weather Protects It
Many people don’t know that warm weather can cause oil tanks to collect internal condensation and corrode from the inside out. Since this damage isn’t visible to the naked eye, by the time your tank sprouts a leak it will be too late to reverse. The simple fix is keeping your oil tank full year-round. Propane, too, can be stored year-round, as it has a virtually indefinite shelf life.
2. There’s No Downside to Ordering Now
What do you have to lose? Ordering oil or propane now can help you take advantage of off-season pricing and give you a head start on heating during the first chilly day of fall. Oil and propane prices aren’t likely to fall lower than they are right now, so you’re not taking a risk by filling your tank with fuel.
3. Order Online Anytime with Surner
Ordering propane or heating oil has never been easier! You can request a tank fill online any time from your computer or mobile device. It’s simple and secure, and we’ll be sure to deliver your request promptly and reliably every time. Just visit our home page and click “Order Oil” or “Order Propane” in the navigation bar at the top.
4. Spring Temperatures Are Unpredictable
Like we mentioned before, spring can be unpredictable in the weather department. Give yourself peace of mind and the ability to turn on your heat in the case of a cold snap. Placing your heating oil or propane order will give you security through the unknown.
5. You’ll Need Fuel during Summer, Too
Most homes in Massachusetts use oil or propane to power their water heaters, which supply piping hot water for cooking, cleaning, bathing, laundry, dishwashing, and more! Ordering during the warm season will allow you to continue to heat your water for all of your appliances that require it.
