2021 Fall Newsletter

Here we go again

I’m sure you share the frustration felt by all of us here. The optimism of spring — when we thought we had finally beaten COVID-19 — quickly vanished as the highly transmissible Delta variant curtailed our much- anticipated Hot Vax Summer. Now, as we enter the fall heating season, I want to assure you that […]

Snapshot

All of us wish Jenny Hartman congratulations as she embarks on a new phase in her life: retirement. After nearly 28 years in the home comfort business, as both customer service representative and credit & collections manager, she wrapped up her office duties on September 30. “I started with a small family-owned business called Lou’s […]

Avoid Wrong Turns — use propane appliances

It’s amazing how many different ways you can use propane. It’s a super-versatile fuel that can power fireplaces, clothes dryers, outdoor grills, space heaters, water heaters, generators, and more. Of course, a propane furnace or propane boiler can heat your entire home as well. Truly, propane is energy for everyone. Because propane burns hot and […]

Repair or Replace: which way should you go?

If your boiler or furnace is at least 15 years old, consider replacing it soon; the performance and reliability of heating equipment typically deteriorate after 15 years (sooner if maintenance has been neglected). And just like computers and smartphones, heating equipment becomes outdated over time. With better technology, a new high-efficiency heating oil system can […]

Don’t get lost converting to another fuel

The most refined grade of heating oil available, Bioheat® fuel is one of the cleanest-burning heating sources for your home. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions significantly, and no changes to your existing heating oil system are necessary. Higher blends of Bioheat fuel burn even more cleanly, with fewer emissions than natural gas or electric heat […]

Navigate Your Way To Safety

Keep the area around your heating equipment as clean and clutter-free as possible. Never store anything flammable near your heating system. If you ever smell gas, leave your home right away. Report the problem from another location as soon as possible. Install carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in your home, following the manufacturer’s instructions about location […]

Light The Way

Have you ever considered adding a propane fireplace insert? You should since it has efficiencies that can go into the 90% range. That’s so much more efficient than a wood fire! Up to 90% of the heat produced by a wood-burning fireplace goes straight up the chimney! When you have a propane fireplace, it’s easy […]

Ask The Expert

We can install these monitors for all automatic delivery customers with an aboveground tank and an accessible Wi-Fi connection. You can also download […]

What’s Cleaner—Bioheat fuel or electric heat pumps?

Do you think electricity is a clean fuel? Think again. Although electric appliances and electric heat pumps don’t produce any emissions at a home, the power plant that generates the electricity probably does. Those power plants, many of them coal-fired or powered by natural gas, are among the largest sources of greenhouse gas pollution in […]

Treat Your Water Right

We install various types of home water filtration systems including a reverse-osmosis system. One of the most effective water treatment systems available, this type of filtration uses air pressure to make your water pass through a semipermeable membrane. Almost all contaminants are filtered out with this system, which fits under your sink or can be […]
