4 Ways You Can Prepare Your Heating System for Winter

Preparing for cooler weather

Fall is here, and even though the trees are still mostly green here in Eastern Long Island, we all know that temperatures will eventually drop and leave us reaching for the heat setting on our thermostat.

Before those leaves start to fall in earnest, here are four things you can do to make your transition to fall a little easier in the weeks ahead.

  • Sign up for a Burt’s Reliable E-Z Pay Plan – If you want to avoid unexpectedly high monthly bills this heating season, try our E-Z Pay Plan, which spreads your year’s energy expenses over 12 equal payments. It’s not too late to enroll in E-Z Pay – contact us to switch from Will Call today.
  • Sign up for a Burt’s Reliable Service Plan – Investing in a high-value Gold or Silver Heating Plan from Burt’s Reliable that covers your routine heating system maintenance will pay off now (with lower energy bills and greater comfort) and later (with fewer heating repairs).
  • Sign up for Automatic Delivery or Tank Monitor service – Running out of heating oil isn’t fun – but you can avoid that hassle by signing up for FREE Automatic Delivery from Burt’s. With Automatic Delivery, we’ll schedule your heating oil fill up based on an estimate of your past usage and the current weather. If you want even more peace of mind, consider adding a Gremlin™ Tank Monitor, which attaches to your tank and constantly measures oil levels. Gremlin Tank Monitors are free to Burt’s Reliable customers with service plans, aboveground tanks and accessible Wi-Fi connection!
  • Consider replacing your older heating systemUpgrading to a new, high-efficiency, eco-friendly furnace or boiler can save you 30 percent or more on your monthly heating bill. The new equipment can pay for itself in as little as three years.
