All year long you take steps to stay safe and keep your family safe in your Hudson Valley home. Winter brings its own unique set of safety concerns. There’s cold, snow, and ice to contend with. Our region has already had a record-breaking winter in terms of temperatures, and more biting cold days are still ahead of us. Keeping everyone in your home warm enough throughout whatever remains of winter will require the consistent delivery of heating oil.
Each time you get a heating oil delivery this winter, there are things you should be mindful of and do beforehand that will help protect your home, your property, and our delivery personnel.
Valley Oil is committed to making your heating oil delivery even in tough weather conditions. Let’s review some of the important steps you can take to help the Valley Oil team deliver your heating oil safely and efficiently all winter long.
Tips For A Smooth Heating Oil Delivery
Please take the following steps to prepare for the safe and efficient delivery of your heating oil this winter season:
Make sure our delivery crew will have safe access to your property. Clear away any snow or ice that has accumulated on your walkway and driveway. Make sure there’s a safe path to your oil fill pipe that’s at least one foot in width.
Make sure your fill pipe can be easily and safely accessed. Keep it free of snow and ice. We also suggest that you mark your fill pipe with a brightly colored flag. That will make it more visible during and following a storm so you can more easily clear a path to it and our delivery personnel will always be able to find it.
Keep a watchful eye on your fuel levels. Changes in the weather could cause your heating oil usage to increase dramatically. Call Valley Oil for your next delivery before your tank is less than ¼ full—even sooner if a winter storm or cold snap is in the forecast. Don’t procrastinate. Demand is always higher during the winter months, and you don’t want to be at the end of a long line of deliveries when you’re running low of oil and could potentially run out. Being without heat on a cold day can put your family and home at risk.
Sign up for automatic delivery. Running out of heating oil is frustrating, inconvenient, and potentially dangerous. You don’t want to put your family’s health and safety at risk. Avoid the headache and risks associated with a run-out by signing up for automatic delivery. We’ll do all the calculations and schedule your heating oil deliveries so that you always have enough.
