Benefits of Oil Heat Service Contracts and Automatic Deliveries
When you own a home, there are many things to consider and maintain, as well as many costs to cover. Let Tragar Oil, your Long Island green energy company, take the worry out one of them: your oil heat service.
Our oil heat service coverage, automatic deliveries, monthly payment plans and price-protection programs can help put your mind at ease about heating system maintenance and any repairs that might arise as the cold weather hits. All of these options allow you to stay within your family’s monthly budget without having to worry about rising oil costs in the winter.
Experts at the Empire State Energy Association agree, “It makes sense for every home and business to have some sort of emergency heat coverage, such as a service contract,” adding, “Service plans are a convenient way to cover the annual costs of preventive maintenance, repairs and replacement parts for your heating system with one low payment,” thereby lowering the cost of heating repairs for those homeowners who have service contracts. Furthermore, the ESEA, says, “Most customers feel the cost of a service plan is worthwhile just for the annual tune-up. Annual cleaning, tuning and testing can help to increase your heating system’s performance and longevity. In fact, tests conducted by the Department of Energy have proven a tune-up can lower a homeowner’s annual heating bill by as much as 10 percent.”
Here at Tragar Oil we have a variety of options to help give peace of mind to homeowners as temperatures drop. At Tragar, oil service means 24-7 coverage, an average response time of two-hours time for your heating emergencies, two-hour scheduled appointment windows, and service from professional, full-time Tragar technicians only. Think of a service contract as an insurance policy that protects your home in case of an emergency – such as smoke billowing from the chimney or no heat on a cold night – knowing a professional is only a phone call away.
We also diagnose the problem and give you the repair rate before starting. The price is the same if the repair takes 20 minutes or two hours. All repairs come with a 30-day guarantee.
All of our coverage plans do require an annual heating oil delivery agreement, which means automatic deliveries are scheduled. The advantage of that is we watch the tank so you don’t have to do so. ESEA agrees: “Think of automatic delivery as a time-saver, which can ultimately save you money.”
We at Tragar have been delivering oil for almost 60 years, and we have the tools to monitor your consumption pattern and determine approximately how many gallons you use per day. The exact day you’re delivered oil is determined by our computer that works with our weather monitoring system. So you never have to check your tank and don’t have to be home. We leave your home with a metered delivery ticket showing the amount delivered and offer 30 days to pay the invoice.
In addition, our monthly payment plan – called the EZ-Pay budget plan – takes the cost of your annual heating gallons and divides the total over 11 months, making it easy to stay within your family’s budget year-round.
We also offer price-protection programs to meet the various needs of our customers. These programs include fixed-price, fixed gallon, cap rate, guaranteed ceiling, and market variable discount options.
So be sure to contact Tragar today to learn more about our oil service programs, as well as to set an annual inspection and cleaning for oil and gas heating systems.
