The Right Payment Plan for Your Heating Season Budget
With summer in full swing, it’s likely the upcoming heating season is the last thing on your mind. But what if we told you that NOW is the smartest time to plan for winter fuel costs? Payment plans offer the flexibility of choosing how to purchase your fuel and the security of predictable payments.
- Annual savings
- Predictable energy bills
- Protection from market fluctuation
Which Plan Should I Choose?
When you sign up for a payment plan before winter arrives, you can take advantage of lower preseason rates or spread costs evenly throughout the year. These plans are built for flexibility, which is why you have a variety of options to choose from:
Purchase your heating oil in advance at a low, fixed price. We will help estimate how many gallons you will need for the season, then you pay up front. With that taken care of, you can spend your winter totally worry-free!
Fixed Price Budget Pre-Pay Plan
Similar to the Pre-Pay Plan, this option allows you to contract for a specific number of gallons at a set price for the heating season. But, instead of paying up front you can divide the cost into five equal installments.
Instead of juggling sky-high fuel bills in the winter and barely-there bills in the summer, a budget plan distributes your annual fuel costs into even monthly payments. We will estimate your annual oil use based on your history, and divide that into 12 or 10 installments. You have your choice of a 12-month or 10-month plan.
What about Downside Protection?
The oil market can be unpredictable to say the least! Downside protection is an additional, optional policy that will guarantee that you always pay the lowest possible price for your heating oil. If market prices drop below your fixed price, you will pay the lower price. This option is available for Pre-Pay and Fixed Budget Pre-Pay Plan for up to 2,000 gallons.
