The Benefits of Central AC

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Summer is in full swing, and it’s a hot one! Having the right cooling system ensures that you and your family can enjoy relief from those scorching, summer days in the comfort of your own home. Central air conditioning systems are among the most beneficial cooling systems in existence. Some of the benefits include:

  • Larger cooling range – Central air conditioning systems provide the ability to cool an entire house at the same time, whereas window and wall units can typically only cool one room at a time.
  • Lower utility/energy costs – Window units tend to use more energy, as they are constantly running. Since it only takes one system to efficiently cool your whole house, you will not have to have multiple units running at once, resulting in lower utility bills.
  • Better air quality – Today’s central air filters are able to remove most pollutants and allergens from the air. This can also result in better respiratory health.
  • Less noise – Central air conditioning systems are much quieter than window units, which are known for being loud when running.
  • Takes up less space – Central AC requires no inside space to be used for installation, reducing clutter.
  • Easy to operate – most central AC controls are very simple to use.
  • Can also provide heat – Some central AC systems can also conveniently provide heat in the winter with the flip of a switch.

What to do if You Smell Propane in Your Home

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, July 07, 2015

Propane is a fuel that comes from oil refining and natural gas processing. It is used by over 60 million Americans for heat, hot water, cooking, fireplaces, dryers, vehicles, swimming pool heaters and more, making it one of the most versatile fuels in existence. Since propane is naturally colorless and odorless, odorant is added so it can be more easily detected. It is very serious if you smell propane in your home, so you need to be sure to take the appropriate measures.

If you smell propane in your home, here is what you should do to ensure the safety of yourself and others:

  • Leave the building immediately
  • Do not turn light switches on or off
  • Do not do anything that can cause a spark (using a lighter, smoking, using hairspray,etc.)
  • Leave doors open
  • If it is safe, turn off the gas supply at the tank
  • Do not re-enter the building if you are outside
  • Once you are safe, call your gas supplier and emergency personnel
  • Keep yourself and others out of the building until help arrives

Tankless Water Heater Benefits – Plus, Your Chance to WIN!

Matt Polsinello - Thursday, June 18, 2015

Ever thought about switching to a tankless water heater? Not sure what the difference is between conventional water heaters and tankless? A tankless water heater is as simple as it sounds – a water heater that does not store water in a tank. Instead, these types of water heaters produce hot water only when it is needed which makes them very efficient. They have been popular in Europe and other countries, but are beginning to grow in popularity in the US because of the benefits they offer.

Some of the benefits of having a tankless water heater include:

  • Space Saving: Aside from being small and compact, tankless water heaters are usually installed on a wall, where they hang nicely out of the way.
  • Built to Last: Unlike conventional water heaters, tankless water heaters are not made to be “disposable.” Once installed, they will supply your home with hot water for years to come.
  • Unlimited Hot Water: Tankless water heaters supply steady hot water by using highly efficient heat exchangers to instantly heat the water.
  • Energy Efficient: Since tankless water heaters do not heat and store hot water, they usually only run when you need them to. This can result in lower energy costs.

Contact us today to find out how a tankless water heater from Polsinello Fuels can benefit you and your home! Plus, ENTER TO WIN a brand new Rinnai tankless water heater with full installation by Polsinello Fuels!

No Hidden Fees with Budget Friendly Options

Matt Polsinello - Thursday, June 11, 2015

There are many ways our family owned and operated business achieves this. At the top of the list, we have “No Hidden Fees!” And the lowest monthly payments available!!

In addition to our “No Hidden Fees” policy, we offer our customers multiple budget friendly programs to help them manage the fluctuating heating oil and propane pricing. They include two types:

Prepay Programs – Up Front Payment

  • Capped: A capped prepay program dictates how high the price will be throughout the year, if the price is lower, the customer will receive the reduced rate. (Oil only)
  • Flex: A flex prepay program does not lock or cap the price; it offers an overall discount of $0.15 per gallon upon enrollment. (Oil & Propane)

Budget Programs - Monthly Payments

  • Fixed: A fixed prepay program locks the price of propane and is typically a discounted price for an entire year if it is paid up front.
  • Capped: A capped budget program limits how high the price will go from month to month, if the price is lower, the customer will receive the reduced rate.
  • Flex: A flex budget program does not lock or cap the price, it offers an overall monthly discount of $0.10 per gallon.
