How Does It Work?

We use a Johnson Degree Day Meter to track outdoor temperatures every 15 seconds. Using this data along with fuel usage history, we are able to create a custom delivery schedule and accurately estimate when it’s time to fill your tank. You will receive efficient deliveries without even picking up the phone!

Will Call vs. Automatic Delivery

Making a decision for your home comfort and household spending requires research. When you compare will call to automatic delivery, there is a clear winner:


Automatic Delivery

  • More efficient fill ups
  • Greater cost savings
  • Less chance of running out of fuel
  • Custom delivery schedule
Will Call

The Solution to Staying Warm

Automatic delivery is the best way make staying warm easy. Customers that sign up enjoy complete convenience and gain peace of mind. With your tank levels closely monitored, the likelihood of a no-fuel emergency is much lower, but not completely impossible. Automatic delivery customers are still responsible of checking tank gauges every so often and must inform the energy provider of any changes that might affect fuel usage, like an increase in household size or property additions. Running out of fuel can cause unnecessary safety risk and potential damage to your heating system.
