Winter may have officially started in late December, but it arrived in late January here in West Virginia. As temperatures drop, it becomes more important than ever to keep an eye on your fuel gauge – especially If you’re a will call customer.
Running out of fuel during the winter is no fun – apart from the obvious discomfort of not having enough heat to keep your family safe and comfortable, it also creates other complications for your home and family.
Running Out Of Fuel Consequences
If you run out of propane, for example, you’ll have to have your propane system professionally pressure tested – at your own expense. If you run out of heating oil, you might end up with clogged fuel lines as sludge from the bottom of your tank makes its way through your heating system. Run out of either fuel and you could end up triggering a larger and costlier problem, such as frozen, bursting water pipes or mold.
Needless to say, running out of fuel during the winter is definitely something you want to avoid. The question is, what’s the best way to do that?
If you’re a Will Call customer, keep a close eye on your fuel gauge throughout the winter, especially during a cold snap. Please don’t wait until the last minute to schedule your propane delivery or heating oil delivery – we might not be able to get to you before you run out! Order your fuel when the tank is no less than one-quarter full to avoid a no-heat emergency.
