Winter is full swing and the holiday season means plenty of fun with friends and family. Unfortunately, when you’re caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s easy to forget one of the most important things—scheduling your heating oil delivery. Before you get too far down the list of things that you need to do before hosting during the holiday season, take some time to schedule your heating oil deliveries.

When Should I Schedule My Heating Oil Delivery?

If you are planning to host guests over the course of the holidays, you should budget for more heating oil than you would typically use. Heating rooms that are typically unoccupied and keeping the thermostat set high enough to keep everyone comfortable will increase the heating oil that you need. Adjust your heating oil delivery schedule accordingly and make sure that you will be receiving them before you run out. Scheduling your heating oil deliveries early will ensure that you never need to call in a panic during inclement weather or during business holidays, when our delivery schedule is impacted.

Is Automatic Delivery Right For You?

One of the best ways to avoid worrying about scheduling your heating oil delivery is enrolling in automatic delivery. Stover Energy offers complimentary automatic heating oil delivery that removes the stress from receiving high-quality heating oil on a regular basis. We will monitor your heating oil levels and keep your tank filled through the holidays and beyond so that your home is always comfortable and warm.

How Can I Prepare for My Heating Oil Delivery?

Once you have finished scheduling your heating oil delivery, you can prepare for your driver to arrive. If it snowed recently, clear your driveway. Avoid parking your car in a place that could block a heating oil truck from reaching your home. If it will be snowing, mark off any landmarks in your yard and your heating oil tank with small flags. Putting a little bit of time into preparing your property for a delivery will ensure that your delivery goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.
