3 Easy (and Early) Ways to Tackle Heating Season Stress This Year

Stress free

Well, here we are on the verge of fall here at the North Fork (believe it or not…especially with the weather we’ve been having). Before you know it, there will be a chill in the air that makes you reach of the thermostat – and you’ll have the heating bills to prove it.

The good news is with a little planning and the help of some convenient Burt’s Reliable services, you can avoid some of the stress that can come once heating season begins in earnest.

Here are three easy things you can do now to make things go a little more smoothly as we transition from cooling to heating season here in Long Island:

  • Sign up for an Burt’s Reliable Service Plan – An annual tune-up helps your boiler, burner or furnace run at peak efficiency – and helps our technicians spot small problems before they become big headaches. The earlier you get your annual service call in, the better – not only will you avoid the early fall rush, but you’ll also enjoy the performance benefits of a tune-up for a full heating season. Burt’s offers Silver and Gold level Comfort Plans for your heating oil-fired system – both of which include tune-ups plus repair savings, further discounts, and more. Contact us to discuss which Comfort Plan is right for you.
  • Enroll in Auto Pay – Fast, convenient, and secure, our Auto Pay service streamlines bill paying and helps you avoid late fees. You can make automatic payments with your MasterCard, Visa Debit or Discover Card – and if you’re an automatic delivery customer, you can start getting your statements by email to cut down on paper clutter.

  • Consider a Gremlin™ heating oil Tank Monitor – Did you know that Burt’s Reliable is the only fuel company on the North Fork that provides FREE oil tank monitoring*? With Tank Monitoring, our delivery teams will know exactly how much fuel is in your tank at all times (you will, too, thanks to its proprietary app for your smartphone). With this precision, Burt’s Reliable customers can rest assured knowing that they will get exactly the fuel they need, exactly when they need it.
