Cold Weather Warning!
Tuesday – January 2nd, 2018
Extremely low temperatures are unfortunately in the forecast for the remainder of the week. Temperatures this low for an extended period of time leads to frozen water lines and the potential for burst pipes and damage to your home. If you have force hot water baseboard heat or hydro air in your attic then precautionary steps should be taken to prevent frozen water and supply lines.
- Caution Using Programmable Thermostats – It is recommended that you remove the programmed temperature change, which lowers heat when you are not home, and set it to manual setting at a comfortable setting in the high 60’s to low 70’s. Your thermostat should remain in manual setting until the cold snap is gone. This will help to maintain a steady temperature in the house, which will reduce the chance of your heating system remaining dormant which can lead to freeze up.
- Caution Using Alternative Heat Sources - If you use alternative systems (Wood / Pellet or Ductless Systems) to save money on fuel, proceed with caution as this also may lead to frozen pipes. Using alternative heat sources, can cause your primary heating oil system to not be as reactive in zones which are more susceptible to freezing, whereas if your oil heating system is in continuous operation the chance of this happening is greatly reduced.
- Monitor Your Fuel Use and Oil Gauges – The program used for automatic delivery can run into issues when this type of cold freeze happens, meaning it may predict that you have more fuel than you actually do. If your oil gauge is near 50% or 1/2 tank it would be advisable to call our office so you can be put on the delivery schedule for the following week.
Remember that the cost of an emergency repair is significantly more expensive than fuel savings and a frozen pipe could lead to extensive damage to your home and belongings. Your oil usage during this cold snap will be greater than usual. Due to this freeze, it also means that more customers may need emergency service than usual which may have a great impact on the time needed to be dispatched to your repair.
By applying these preventative steps, you are going to be much better off in the long run.
We wish you a Happy New Year and Appreciate Your Choosing Stormville Oil!
