As the State begins to reopen, we have also reopened our office and services to normal business, as normal can be during these difficult times. Our office will be reopened on June 15, 2020 for walk in business. As our entry area is small, only one customer may enter at a time and we do request that a mask be worn during your visit. Our recommendation to our customers is call first to request an appointment so no one is left standing outside in wait. We will accept cash payments; however, we prefer that another type of payment be made. The transference of cash increases the risk to you and our employees in handling money, please take this into consideration when making your payments.
Our drivers will continue to not accept cash payment on delivery. As the drivers are on the road all day and in and out of their vehicles, it is more difficult for them to wash their hands, put masks on and off, or protect themselves against the virus. Payment arrangements should be made with the office when your order is placed.
Our service technicians are provided with proper PPE to enter and service your heating and cooling needs in your home. We do request for technicians to have direct access to your system if possible. Allow our technicians to complete their work while maintaining distance and make payment arrangements with our office staff so the technician can avoid person to person contact.
Except with these adjustments, business is open as usual for all your needs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office for further information.
Make sure your family has a safe and comfortable home to stay in all winter. If you have a propane- or natural gas-fired heating system that is over 15 years old, chances are that you are due for an HVAC upgrade. With technology ever-increasing the efficiency of gas-fired equipment, your family can stay warmer without fear of breakdown; all while enjoying consistent, efficient heat year-round.
Upgrading your heating oil equipment can increase your HVAC system’s efficiency by at least 28%. Heating equipment efficiency is measured in AFUEs, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. With the advancement of technology and an ever-increasing need to cut back greenhouse gases, natural gas and propane equipment are now rating AFUEs of 96%! This means that a new high-efficiency heating system will save you a noticeable amount of money each season.
