Three Ways to Smooth Your Transition to the 2018/19 Heating Season

Writing notes

You wouldn’t know it by the weather we’re having here in Massachusetts, but fall is only weeks away – which means that cooler weather is just around the corner.

That makes this an important time for you as a homeowner – with a little planning and the help of some convenient services from Needham Oil & Air, you can set yourself up for a stress-free transition into heating season.

Here are four things you can do in September to make things go a little more smoothly in the months ahead:

  1. Schedule your heating system tune-up – If you haven’t done it yet, now is the time to get your heating system tune-up out of the way. The earlier you do it, the better – not only will you avoid the early autumn rush, but you’ll also enjoy the performance benefits of a tune-up for a full heating season. Needham offers high value Service Plans for heating oil- and natural gas-fired heating system that include tune-ups, repair savings, reduced or eliminated fees, and more (by the way, fall is a great time to get your cooling system maintenance out of the way, too).
  2. Enroll in “the Autos” – Choose FREE Automatic Delivery and let Needham worry about managing your heating oil – our software will estimate when you need oil based on your past usage and the current weather. You’ll never have to look at your fuel gauge again, and you can say goodbye to heating oil run-outs.
    If you want a fast, convenient, and secure way to pay your bills, try our Auto Pay service, which streamlines bill paying, reduces paper clutter, and helps you avoid late fees. Just set it and forget it – you’ll never think about paying your bill again.
  3. Switch to SmartPay – An high heating bill can be a real shocker, especially around the holidays. But with Needham’s SmartPay budget plan, you’ll avoid that problem because you’ll know exactly what your bills will be every month. We’ll simply estimate a year’s worth of your typical heating bills and divide that total into 11 equal payments (with one adjustment payment).
