Let’s face it: no matter how many ways you find to save energy and make your home run as efficient as possible, heating a home in a cold climate like ours can still get expensive.
The good news is that Burt’s Reliable offers a number of ways for you to save money during heating season. Here are a two of the big ones:
- Switch from another heating oil supplier – When you become an Burt’s Reliable heating oil customer, you’ll also save more on your taxes than you will with most oil suppliers in our Eastern Long Island service area. That’s because we offer B20 Bioheat® – a fuel that qualifies you for a 20-cent per gallon clean fuel credit on your New York State income taxes. Very few companies delivery such a highly refined, clean-burning fuel, which can save you an average of $150 a year in tax payments!
When you file your taxes, just be sure to include your usage statement (which we mail to you at the beginning of every year), and follow NY State eligibility rules and instructions.
- Switch to automatic delivery – With automatic heating oil delivery from Burt’s, you’ll reduce the risk of running out of fuel – a problem that can cost you in more ways than one. For starters, you’ll have to pay an emergency fueling charge so our crews can get your heating system back up and running quickly. You may also end up needing to service your furnace or boiler as sludge from the bottom of your near-empty heating oil tank makes its way into your fuel lines.
