Tips to Prevent Heat-Loss, Fuel Runouts, and Heating Equipment Breakdowns in CT

Check Your Oil Tank Regularly

If you are on will-call oil delivery because you prefer to manage your own fuel storage tank levels, be sure to check your tank gauge regularly so you know when you’re starting to run low. Please remember that to account for delivery scheduling, you should order oil when your tank is no lower than 1/4 full.

Switch to Automatic Oil Delivery

The easiest way to ensure you’ll have heat when you need it is to sign up for our convenient automatic fuel oil delivery service. We’ll remotely monitor your tank, keep an eye on the weather for you, and deliver oil before your tank runs empty. The best part about automatic fuel delivery is that it doesn’t cost you anything extra—simply contact us to get enrolled today.

Don’t Skip Your Annual Heating System Tune-Up Service

The best time of year to have this maintenance performed is each fall—right before your equipment works its hardest. If there are any issues with your heating system at the time of your maintenance visit, you’ll have time to correct them before winter sets in. Haven’t had a tune-up yet? Schedule this service today with Brothers Mechanical!

Consider an HVAC System Upgrade

If your heating equipment has seen better days, upgrade the components of your heating system or install a brand-new one. Whether you choose to replace your complete system with a newer, high-efficiency model or to correct parts-related issues found at the time of your tune-up, don’t risk operating old, inefficient, and potentially unsafe equipment for another winter.

Choose a Full-Service Energy Provider

Take preventative measures that can save you a fortune but won’t cost you one, like trusting a full-service energy provider with your total home comfort. Unlike discount heating oil providers, Brothers Oil and Brothers Mechanical has the expertise it takes to care for your heating system to ensure it is operating efficiently year after year. There’s no need to settle for the bare minimum when you can get more value for your money by selecting Brothers Oil and Brothers Mechanical as your full-service fuel and HVAC service provider.

Enroll in a Service Contract for Greater Protection & Access to Emergency Service

While the act of enrolling in a service contract alone won’t help you prevent a heat-out emergency, the services included—like your annual tune-up and discounts on system repairs—will. The better you take care of your heating equipment, the better it will be at keeping your home warm safely and without interruption.
