How to Avoid a No-Heat Emergency This Holiday Season

People who use Bioheat® fuel oil in Massachusetts or Connecticut typically have a routine for placing their delivery orders. Maybe you check your tank gauge every Saturday, or you have a reminder on your calendar to order fuel on the 1st of each month. These are all great habits that can help you avoid the scary situation of a no-heat emergency: those circumstances are never fun, especially during the holiday season!

Here are a few more tips to help ensure that you have seamless warmth at your Western Massachusetts or Northern Connecticut home this holiday season. After all, your warmth and safety are our top priority.

Top Tips to Avoid a No-Heat Emergency During the Holidays in MA & CT:

Monitor your fuel tank gauge regularly

If you’re a homeowner or business owner in the Western Mass or Northern CT area, you know just how cold temperatures drop. Colder weather means you’ll need more fuel to keep your property warm and cozy, so it’s more important than ever to regularly check your oil tank gauge and order when the marker reaches ¼.

Order a fuel delivery in time

We offer a two-day delivery guarantee, but severe winter storms and holidays can interrupt even the fastest fuel delivery routes. We recommend ordering when your tank gauge is at ¼ in order to leave plenty of time for your fuel delivery to arrive. One way to help ensure fast delivery is to clear the path to your oil fill pipe of debris, ice, and snow.

Plan your fuel orders around holidays

Holidays also affect our two-day delivery guarantee. To receive Bioheat® fuel oil before a holiday, please refer to the text beneath this chart to find out when to place your order by. Typically, we need at least three days to deliver fuel when holidays stand between your order date and delivery date. That means that if you want a fuel delivery before Thanksgiving, you must place your order no later than 4:30 p.m. on the Monday evening before the holiday. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
