Football season is quickly approaching, kids are going back to school and pumpkin-spiced drinks are back on store shelves. Summer is drawing to a close. Fall and the cooler weather it brings will soon be here. That means it’s also time for will-call propane customers to check their tank levels and schedule a delivery if needed.
You may be wondering, ‘Why worry about propane in August?’ There are a few good reasons.
Fill in Summer to Save Later
From a historical standpoint, filling your tank during the summer off-season typically offers opportunities to lock in or buy at a more favorable price than when demand rises during the winter.
If you’re worried about paying for a propane delivery ahead of winter, MFA Oil offers an Even Pay Program. Even Pay allows you to spread your heating costs out based on your estimated propane consumption for the year.
You’re Prepared No Matter the Weather
It is never too early to start getting ready for winter. Scheduling a propane delivery now guarantees you are ready when the weather eventually turns colder. When you fill your tank now, you avoid getting caught off-guard by an unexpected cold snaps. You also won’t have to worry about scheduling a rush delivery.
Spreading Deliveries Out Helps Everyone
We know winter is coming. That means propane demand will be on the rise. You can beat the rush of propane refill requests that normally flood in once cold weather arrives. Acting now helps everyone avoid potential problems caused by logistical bottlenecks. There are only so many drivers, trucks and hours in the day which limit the amount of propane that we can deliver.
MFA Oil works hard to keep all customer tanks well supplied with propane, but some preparation from you is helpful and appreciated. If you’ve yet to check your tank level, please do so now and call your local office if you need a delivery.
