Jeffrey Jennings

Dear Friends,

Great news! We now deliver propane and provide installation and repair services for many types of propane systems.

(You may have noticed we have changed our name to Jennings Oil & Propane.) Propane is quickly becoming the fuel of choice for many people — including our customers! And that’s no surprise. Propane is a clean-burning, safe, economical and highly efficient energy source for both inside and outside your home.

Right now, we’re putting the finishing touches on our propane supply terminal to ensure that we always have plenty of fuel on hand. And over the past year, our service team has taken rigorous propane training courses through the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP).

When you join us as our propane customer, we guarantee you:

Please give us a call so we can learn about your situation, show you a host of options and tell you more about our special incentives for new propane customers.

Warmly,
Jeffrey Jennings, Co-owner

fuel your outdoor memories

No other fuel can do as much as propane can to make lounging in your backyard a pleasant experience. And thanks to modern advances in flexible piping, you can now extend your use of propane to a wider range of outdoor products — even refrigerators and fireplaces!

Grill it up

Grill it up
Propane grills light instantly, heat faster than charcoal, and emit less carbon monoxide and soot. They make your food taste better too! For convenience’s sake, higher-end grills offer drawers, side burners, surface lighting and LED temperature displays.

People are taking cooking to new levels by adding cooktops, ovens and rotisseries to their deck or patio.

Swim it up

Swim it up
Whether you have an aboveground pool, an in-ground pool or a spa, a propane pool heater will warm your water much faster — and at a lower cost — than an inefficient electric heater.

Many propane pool heaters include sensors that shut off the unit if water temperatures rise above preset limits.

Warm it up

Warm it up
Take the chill out of the air with portable heaters and outdoor fireplaces, which can raise outdoor temperatures by as much as 30°. They’re great for prolonging your outdoor entertaining season!

Most portable heaters immediately shut down if the heater gets knocked over.

the yellow school bus goes green

Many states in the country have been adopting alternative energy incentive programs in recent years, resulting in more school districts purchasing propane autogas buses, according to the Propane Education & Research Council.

Green school bus

These school districts have realized enormous fuel savings by using propane autogas instead of diesel fuel. Propane costs about 50% less than diesel per gallon and reduces maintenance costs as a result of its clean-operating properties.

Additionally, propane-powered school buses perform better in cold weather than dieselpowered buses. They start more easily and their interiors heat faster so that windows become defrosted quickly.

Kids are benefitting from a healthier ride to and from school as well. Studies show that, when compared with the diesel buses they have replaced, buses fueled by autogas:

the tanks you get

Oil tank

They say you get better with age, but that’s not true of oil tanks. If your oil tank is more than 30 years old, we recommend replacing it.

While it’s true that oil tanks last many years, they eventually do give out. Life spans vary depending on the humidity, the thickness of the tank’s steel and more. And when tanks do fail, it’s hard to see it coming, because they can erode from the inside out.

Today’s oil tanks are light-years ahead of old models. The new generation of aboveground tanks are virtually leakproof and feature:

If that’s not enough, 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!

endless hot water for less money

Showerhead water

Many of our propane customers are upgrading to tankless water heaters. With no tank of water to keep warm, a tankless water heater is is up to 40% more energy efficient than storage tank water heaters.

Tankless units also provide a virtually unlimited supply of hot water on demand. And since a tankless water heater can be hung on a wall, it can free up valuable floor space.

Tankless heaters are extremely durable. You can expect a tankless water heater to last 20 years or more — twice as long as a typical storage tank water heater.

Meanwhile, many of our oil heat customers now use their boilers not only to heat their homes, but to produce hot water for showers, hot tubs, washing machines, dishwashers — you name it. And they get it virtually free in the winter.

It’s called an indirect-fired water heater, and if you have an oil boiler, it can be a phenomenal option.

Anytime your boiler is heating your home, your indirect water heater works for free. It’s like having your cake and eating it, too!

If you have a water heater that is 10 years old or older, start checking out your options today!

Spring flowers

Oil heat and propane are clean, green and economical ways to heat your home! The latest systems are small, smart and super-efficient and can save you, on average, about 30% on your annual heating costs. Plus, there are many different equipment options to fit your budget.

John Bardin

You may know John Bardin as Big John or just as “the guy in the shorts,” but this 25-year veteran of Jennings Oil & Propane now has a new title: propane plant manager.

Construction of our propane supply terminal in Gaylordsville has been under way for a couple of years, and John and his team are ready to go.

“Propane is great, because you can use it so many ways, heating your home, hot water and generators, to name a few,” says John.

“I know this spring we’ll be busy with our trucks on the road making deliveries. I hope our customers also come in to say hello and bring us their portable tanks. We’ll be glad to give them a refill so they can enjoy their outdoor grilling.”

Feel free to stop in and see John and his team at:
10 Allen Drive in Gaylordsville.
