News And Tips

What Does Your Oil Provider Offer You?

Matt Polsinello - Wednesday, March 19, 2014


In recent years, there have been several mergers of local oil companies. When these mergers are done right, there is care and consideration for the adjustments customers may have to make. Not all oil companies are the same, customers should consider what they are looking for in an oil company and ask the right questions. Below are a few questions you should ask your new oil company to make sure you receive the service you are accustomed to.

Q: Does your new oil company offer dependable service?

A: Not all oil companies have a full time service department. Make sure you are protected, by finding an oil company that can offer 24-hour emergency service by trained technicians. Being stranded without heat in the middle of the night is never a good position to be in.

Q: Does your new oil company offer service agreements?

A: A service agreement can be worth its weight in gold and other times they are not worth the paper they were printed on. The words “service agreement” mean different things to different people. A true service agreement should include annual maintenance and cover parts and labor for major service repairs. However, some oil companies’ versions of a service agreement are a fee that allows you to be their customer and includes an annual cleaning. Read your service agreement before you pay for an overpriced cleaning and you don’t get the coverage you deserve.

Q What is the Price?

A: As important as this question sounds, it should only be a part of your overall decision of which provider to do business with. Choosing an oil company based on price alone can often lead to disappointment. The cheapest oil is usually not the best oil and rarely does the service of a discount oil company match that of a full service oil company.

Q: How do the oil price protection programs work?

A: Most reputable oil companies offer some form of seasonal or annual price protection for heating oil. These programs save customers hundreds every year. However, be cautious because not all price protection programs are the same. Many oil companies charge an annual enrollment fee to participate in the programs, which can actually increase the cost per gallon substantially. Also, read the fine print and make sure you are comfortable with the terms of the agreement.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Polsinello Fuels at 465-3535.

Important Questions to Ask Your Fuel Provider

Matt Polsinello - Wednesday, January 22, 2014


As winter sets in, the fuel consumption of your heating system is sure to increase. As you know there are plenty of companies willing to deliver fuel to your home but are they able or willing to service you properly? Here are a few things you should ask your fuel provider to ensure you receive the service you may require during the heating season.

  • Are both service and fuel available from your company?
  • Do you provide 24-hour emergency service?
  • What type of training do you provide your service technicians?
  • How do I reach you in case of emergency at night?
  • Does your company offer service agreements?
  • Does your company offer fuel-purchasing agreements?
  • Is your company a member of any associations within your industry?

These questions should help you when making a decision about a potential fuel company. If you have any other questions about how a full-service company is different please feel free to contact Polsinello Fuels, Inc. at 465-3535.

Save Money In 2014 With New Equipment

Matt Polsinello - Wednesday, January 08, 2014


As temperatures this winter continues to drop it is important to remember the sting of high heating bills can be reduced with new high efficiency equipment. The latest technologies in hot water heaters and home heating equipment can reduce your energy consumption and improve the comfort of your home. Typically, these new high efficiency units can pay for themselves in just a few years. Also, when we talk about the improved efficiency of the new equipment it is easy to get caught up in the cost vs. savings discussion and forget about the environmental and safety benefits of new equipment. Did you know that there have been advances in oil heat technology that allow for an oil-fired furnace to operate at 96% efficiency? That is 10% higher than the highest efficiency furnaces of most manufacturers. Also, there have been significant advances in water heaters. On-demand water heaters are the latest technology in the water heater arena. These new units do not store hot water like conventional water heaters so there is no wasted energy keeping unused water warm. On-demand water heaters are much more efficient and nearly impossible to run out of hot water. If you are interested in reducing your energy consumption and improving the comfort and safety of your home call Polsinello Fuels at 465-3535.
