Have you ever heard of automatic fuel delivery and wondered if it would be a good fit for your home? After all, winter around these parts is no joke, and you don’t want to mess around when it comes to having enough fuel oil or propane gas in your storage tank. However, though we love automatic fuel delivery, we feel it’s only fair to give you an overhead look at both the pros and the cons. Here are the most frequent benefits and drawbacks of automatic delivery that our seasonal and year-round Cape Cod home heating customers experience.
Pros of Automatic Delivery:
There’s no added fee for automatic propane or oil delivery.
You might assume that this convenient service costs more or that companies encourage signing up to sell you more oil or gas than you actually need. If this is the case, you’ll be surprised to learn that automatic delivery is available to customers at no additional cost.
You can feel peace of mind and security that you’ll have fuel when you need it.
Nothing says security like knowing you have a full tank of gas or heating oil when a winter storm is on the forecast. Snow’s Fuel Company’s automatic delivery will give you the warm fuzzies every time.
You can mark “check fuel level” off your weekly to-do list.
Our customers love not having to make “check fuel level” and “order oil” part of their weekly to-do lists. After all, you have enough to worry about during the winter and holiday season. Why not let us simplify your process for no extra cost or hassle?
Cons of Automatic Delivery:
You won’t need to make special trips back to the Cape to check your fuel level.
We understand that for seasonal homeowners, it can be difficult to leave the Cape all winter long with nothing forcing you to come back every now and then. With automatic oil or propane delivery, you won’t be required to check your fuel tank so frequently, and the only thing bringing you back before spring or summer will be your own free will.
You won’t get the pleasure of warming up over a cup of hot chocolate after having to trek out in the snow to check your fuel level.
When your slippers and pajama pant hems are wet from the snow outside, nothing says “recovery” like bundling up in a blanket and drinking hot chocolate. Automatic delivery may remove this simple pleasure from your winter routine.
Chances are high that you won’t get to see a Snow’s delivery driver in the middle of a cold winter night.
Since automatic fuel delivery significantly reduces your risk of a no-heat emergency, it’s likely that you’ll only experience regular daytime fuel deliveries. If seeing our delivery drivers in your driveway in the middle of the night and paying emergency priming and refill fees is something you enjoy, automatic delivery may not be for you.
