Get Off the Oil Price Roller Coaster in These Volatile Times
We don’t need to tell you that energy prices have been going up. Pandemic-related supply chain issues have already caused oil prices to rise. Then, global crude oil prices soared to over $100 per barrel for the first time in eight years after Russia invaded Ukraine in late February.
These economic issues affect Long Island families at the gas pump, in air travel, and on their heating oil bills. Unsurprisingly, we are talking to many customers about how they can avoid unpleasant expenses throughout the year.
While there’s not much any of us can do about global energy markets, Burt’s Reliable offers one way to remove uncertainty from your home energy budget.
Our EZ-Pay Program
If you pay for your home heating oil in full on delivery, you’ve probably had the shock of a higher-than-expected payment during the peak of the heating season. With Burt’s EZ-Pay program, we put you on a monthly payment plan based on your usage history.
We take your previous fuel usage and spread your predicted costs equally over 12 months. No more bulk payments in the dead of winter — you will know exactly what your monthly heating expenses are, making it simpler to create a household budget.
Even better, it’s completely free to join!
We’re Here If You Need to Talk
We hope you’ll contact us about our monthly budget plan. It’s a fantastic way to avoid the ups and downs of the energy price roller coaster.
We also understand that many of our customers are worried about their finances, and we want you to know we’re here for you. With over 100 years of home heating service under our belts, we can help you get the most out of your oil-fired systems.
