When Should I Order Home Heating Oil in Massachusetts?

When you hear word of the latest snowstorm in the forecast, does a small worry pop into your mind? Have I ordered heating oil recently, or am I starting to run low? Many Massachusetts homeowners order home heating oil on a will-call basis, which means they manage their own fuel deliveries instead of having them automatically delivered. If you’re a will-call customer, we’re here with some tips on how to know when it’s time to place a fuel oil order.

Order Oil When Your Storage Tank Level Reaches 1/4

We always recommend that will-call fuel oil customers place their orders while they still have at least ¼ capacity remaining in their oil storage tanks. This gives you plenty of home heating fuel to last until your delivery is made.

How to Check Your Oil Storage Tank’s Fill Gauge

Take a trip down to your basement and find the small glass cylinder on the top or side of your oil tank. It should read just like your car’s gas gauge: Full, ¾, ½, ¼, and Empty. As a reminder, you’ll want to order by the time the top of the marker reaches the 1/4th indicator.

Reading your fuel oil storage tank is simple, but shouldn’t be taken lightly. There are dozens of factors that can affect your fuel usage, such as outdoor temperature, winter storms, amount of traffic in your home, and furnace or boiler efficiency. Check regularly to ensure that you don’t run out of fuel, or contact us to request automatic oil delivery and let us take care of your delivery schedule for you.
