The Value of Full Service
When searching for an oil or propane provider in your area, there are various questions to consider when comparing one company to another. Are they competitively priced? What are customers saying about their experience with the company? What types of services do they offer? And, most importantly, what value will I get for my money?
Discount Fuel vs. Full Service
Choosing a discount fuel provider over a full-service provider may sound like an appealing option, but other than paying a slightly reduced price for fuel delivery, you’re getting no benefit. In fact, when considering a discount provider, you’re forgoing important factors such as reliability, safety, and critical service—all which add great value to your overall home comfort.
Value in Service
Here’s how a full-service supplier can provide the greatest value for your money:
Automatic Oil/Propane Delivery
Winter weather in New England can be harsh and unpredictable, and it would be detrimental to the safety of your family and your home if your fuel tank hits empty. Automatic delivery service ensures that you’ll always have fuel in your tank throughout the heating season, without the need for you to remember to schedule a delivery. Best of all, this convenient program is offered free of charge to customers.
Round-the-Clock Emergency Service
Should your heating equipment malfunction in the middle of the night leaving you without heat, no need to panic. Just pick up the phone and call your full-service energy provider to get your heat back up and running in no time. Otherwise, you’ll be scouring the phone book to find an HVAC provider available to come out after hours, and you’ll probably pay through the nose if you find someone willing to make the trip. So much for your discount fuel savings!
Service under One Roof
When you choose a trusted full-service provider, you know that you only need to make one phone call should you need heating system repair, equipment installations, air conditioning service, or fuel delivery (and you don’t even need to call for delivery service!). You also have peace of mind knowing that you’re getting expert, reliable service for all of your home comfort needs. No discount provider can offer that level of commitment to their customers.
The Numbers Don’t Lie
Consider this; a well-tuned furnace runs more efficiently, which in turn can reduce your fuel consumption by 10%. If you burn 1,000 gallons, that comes out to 100 gallons of savings. Let’s say the current market price of oil is $2.529/gallon; your savings would be around $253 for the year. In contrast, if you switch to a company that does not tune your furnace so efficiently, yet saves you $0.10/gallon over 1,000 gallons per year, you save only $100. Which would you rather?
The choice is clear—by choosing a local full-service provider, you’re choosing high-quality service AND great value for your money. Contact the experts at Arbor Energy to help with your home comfort needs today!
