Your oil tank is a very important part of your heating system that needs to be kept clean and working in order to heat your home efficiently. Knowing more about how your tank works can help you know when something might not be working right and whether it’s time to call for a repair. Here’s a handy infographic to help you learn the basic parts of a typical indoor tank.
Automatic delivery is a time saver and stress-reducer for many of our customers. You never have to worry about whether your oil tank might be low. We offer worry-free automatic delivery service that will determine when you need oil to be delivered to your home. But with thousands of customers across Nova Scotia how do we determine when each customer will need oil? As magical as it might seem, we have a trusted system to figure it all out, it’s called Degree Days.
The Degree Day system is a model that combines 2 statistics – historical daily outdoor temperatures and the amount of oil your home consumed last season.
Using these numbers, we calculate a customer’s burn rate or how much fuel they are likely to consume depending on the outside temperatures and determine if they will be in need of a fuel delivery soon.
Next thing you know you’re getting a fuel delivery just when you need it most, no magic needed! Let us worry about your oil tank so you can focus on what matters most to you! Contact your local branch to sign up for automatic delivery.
