Dear Friends,

Our dedication to exceptional customer service is as old as our company. We’re proud of the wealth of experience we bring to every delivery, installation and repair. But we also embrace modern technology because it allows us to serve you even better and make your life easier.

One of the most exciting developments has been launching our new website at the end of summer. You can open your own online account with us! This will let you view your invoice and pay your bill online, schedule a delivery and sign up for services such as automatic deliveries, paperless billing and AutoPay.

Check in often to read blog posts featuring energy-saving tips and information, or “like” us on Facebook to keep up with news and offers. While you’re at it, make sure we have your current email address and cellphone number so we can reach you immediately if necessary, such as during winter storm emergencies.

Please let us know what you think about our easy-to-navigate website and email us your suggestions about how we can make doing business with us even easier and more convenient.

Rest assured that we will never stop looking for ways to serve you better. Your comfort and peace of mind will always be our top priority.

Please don’t hesitate to call or email us to let us know how we can help you this season.

Warmly,

Autumn leaves

We value all feedback we get from customers, and use it to improve our service. But when you say great things, we like to share it with everyone. Here are a few comments we’ve received recently:

“Thank you for your good service and top-grade oil. My furnace is in good condition because we buy oil from your company.” — Mary O., Roxbury

“From the people who answer the phones to the mechanics who came out to the house over the years, thank you. It wasn’t an easy burner to fix and it wasn’t easy accessing it because of the narrow stairs.” — Lorraine V., Newtown

“Thanks for getting out quickly today and identifying my air conditioning problem. Once again I appreciate your effort, follow-up and dedication to excellent customer service, not only for this, but other issues. This is what makes for loyal customers.” — Robert S., New Fairfield

The American oil revolution is bringing lower prices and plentiful domestic supplies. But that’s just the beginning. A new formulation of heating oil is becoming available that burns super-clean, is ultra-efficient and is infused with renewable BioHeat®.

Cleaner than ever

While solar energy and wind power continue to capture headlines for their potential, one of the exciting developments in the energy world has been the expanded use of BioHeat® fuel.

This is a combination of low-sulfur heating oil and biodiesel, which is made domestically from dozens of natural sources, including soybeans, sunflowers and pumpkin seeds.

As the most refined grade of heating oil, BioHeat® fuel burns significantly cleaner and has little negative impact on the environment. When used with a technologically advanced oil heat system, it produces near-zero levels of particulate matter during the combustion process.

What’s more, BioHeat® fuel is made in America and requires no modifications to your existing system.

Production is up, prices are down

The new American oil revolution is now a reality. Domestic oil production just reached its highest point in 43 years! As a result, most experts expect oil prices to stay lower for the foreseeable future.

Higher efficiency and bigger savings

The oil heat industry continues to make technological breakthroughs that promise a new era of higher efficiency and bigger savings for everyone fortunate enough to heat their home with the new heating oil.

What about the tank?

A heating oil storage tank offers an important advantage: the ability to safely store an adequate supply of heating oil that’s ready for immediate use whenever a need to heat the home arises.

Today’s aboveground tanks are worry free and virtually leak proof. Most oil tanks are now built of corrosion-resistant materials. In many cases, new aboveground tanks are double-walled and come with alarm systems if there is any discharge.

Plus, the newest generation of aboveground tanks generally can be installed in small or unusually shaped spaces.

In short, today’s tanks provide peace of mind and convenience—in addition to all the other benefits of heating your home with oil!

The greater the efficiency, the MORE you SAVE! This chart shows average savings from upgrading to a new system with 85% efficiency.

Three ways to use less oil

Use less oil

  1. Distribute heat evenly in rooms by running a ceiling fan in reverse. By recirculating the warm air trapped near the ceiling, you can lower your thermostat.
  2. Install smart programmable thermostats to automate your home temperature settings. You could reduce heating oil usage by up to 10%.
  3. Add outdoor reset controls to your boiler. Your boiler’s water temperature will automatically adjust, depending on the outdoor temperature. This can save you hundreds on your annual fuel bill.

Savings comfort plan

What happens if your furnace or boiler conks out this winter? Do you have a plan? Thinking ahead could save you time, money and comfort.

That’s why we offer service plans for your heating system. Depending on the plan you choose, you can save 10% on all covered repairs or get free repair coverage. And after your system is tuned up, you will experience fewer breakdowns and be guaranteed top efficiency. All service plan customers receive priority service, too!

The savings on just one big repair can pay back your service plan investment. Why not enroll today?

Tune-up winners

This spring we announced a drawing to win a $100 gift card, open to everyone who completed a heating system tune-up between April 1 and August 31.

Congratulations to our three lucky winners!

Of course, everybody who had a tune-up done is a winner because their system is now ready to take on another tough winter.

Q: What does it mean when you say you install equipment the right way?

A: Installing a new oil heating system the right way requires skilled technicians with specialized training. Some contractors will be glad to sell you equipment at a low price — but may take installation shortcuts that could cost you more money in the long run.

Q: How do you decide which heating system is right for my home?

A: Jennings Oil has experience installing many different types of systems. This gives us the flexibility to provide the right solution for your home, which includes saving you money on fuel and making your home more comfortable. We stand behind our work with a 1-year workmanship warranty.
