Jeffrey Jennings

Dear Friends,

What an extraordinary winter we had — particularly that brutal stretch of superfrigid temperatures in late December and early January and the nor’easters in March. During the cold snap, we kept all hands on deck, with seven trucks hitting the road for three straight weeks — our only day off was Christmas Day. I even jumped into a truck myself, to help meet the heavy demand for heating fuel. Our new propane division proved up to the task of staying current with deliveries and all service-related issues.

We hope we proved that no one comes through better than our team, no matter how rough the conditions. Throughout the weeks of record cold, not one automatic delivery customer ran out of fuel! All current customers who called either received a delivery within a day or got service the same day they lost their heat. We even delivered fuel to about 200 other people, whose companies were unable to help them. Those folks were so impressed that they switched their service to us!

Here at Jennings, we love what we do for a living, and caring for our customers is a big part of that. We take pride in the effort, attention and goodwill that our people put into their jobs.

As you prepare for the welcome warm weather, remember that we can ease you through the hot months with a cooling tune-up or a new A/C system. We look forward to delivering the best service possible.

Warmly,
Jeffrey Jennings, Co-owner

P.S. Congratulations to the winners of our Nintendo Switch contest: John Hogan, David Green, Brandon Gilbert, Brian Sendrowski and Brian Leyhane!

Annual tune-ups help keep your cooling and heating systems operating trouble-free and at peak efficiency. To encourage everyone to get this important service, we are offering two early-bird tune-up specials.

Tools

  1. Get your air conditioning tune-up done by June 30 and you will receive a $20 discount.
  2. Get your heating tune-up done by August 31 and you will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card! Three winners will be picked at random.

Avoid the rush and schedule these appointments as soon as possible. We may even be able to take care of both tune-ups on the same day.

Please call or contact us to schedule your tune-ups.

Please contact us today to find out more about this special offer: Install a Fujitsu ductless mini-split system by July 31 and save $250!*

Mother and daughter

Surveys have shown that while propane and heating oil customers have exceptionally high levels of satisfaction with the service they receive, most don’t realize all the ways their home fuel can enhance their comfort and save them money.

5 key propane benefits

  1. Clean and green — Propane emits far less greenhouse gas than most other energy sources. Because of the clean-burning characteristics of propane, little maintenance is required.
  2. Cost-effective — Propane appliances can be less expensive to operate than comparable electric appliances, and they last longer too!
  3. Safe — The National Fire Protection Association enforces strict rules about the handling of propane, so few accidents occur each year. Every propane appliance is made with safety shutoffs, and most appliances are equipped with electronic ignition systems to give you years of trouble-free operation.
  4. Efficient — Propane appliances typically reduce energy costs, delivering better value and comfort than other heating sources. Today’s propane furnaces are now as much as 98% efficient.
  5. Flexible installations — Propane tanks can be installed just about anywhere, above or below ground. Additionally, propane water heaters take up less space, have more accurate temperature adjustment and offer more size and installation options.

oil heat “techs” it to the limit

Technology has brought great improvements in efficiency that have reduced annual fuel consumption by as much as 40%, saving oil heat consumers a lot of money on fuel. And because new systems burn cleanly and don’t need as much fuel, they do not pose a hazard to the environment.

Additionally, sulfur levels have been reduced dramatically, improving heating system efficiency and cleanliness and reducing emissions. This reformulated fuel also eliminates the source of most equipment breakdowns. The advent of heating oil with low sulfur content has paved the way for the next generation of compact, super-efficient boilers and furnaces.

Many gallons of heating oil now include Bioheat®, a blend of heating oil and renewable materials like vegetable oils. Because Bioheat integrates seamlessly with all heating oil systems, no changes to your heating system are necessary!

According to a comprehensive report conducted by Brookhaven National Laboratory and presented to Congress by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA), biofuel blends containing 20% or more Bioheat produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than natural gas!

propane power vs. electric power

CLEANER than electricity

Because propane is nontoxic and doesn’t pose a threat to soil and water, (above or below ground), it is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The average propane-powered home reduces carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 30% compared with all-electric homes.

Direct use of propane for space heating, water heating, cooking and drying clothes reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 50%.

MORE EFFICIENT than electricity

Propane is more efficient than electricity when evaluating the total energy consumed (this includes the energy used in the extraction, production, processing and transportation of the fuel to the point of use).

Most high-efficiency propane furnaces feature two-stage gas burners and variable-speed motors to deliver all the warm air you need. That’s why, on the coldest of nights, propane-heated homes are much warmer than those that rely solely on electric heat.

how efficient is oil heat?

Oil heat is efficient and more economical than ever! The latest oil heating systems are small, smart and super-efficient and can save you, on average, about 30% on your annual heating costs. Here are six more quick points about oil heat efficiency.

“Recently, I woke up on a Sunday morning to a 46-degree house. I called the emergency line and Chris from Jennings got right back to me. He was in New Milford and said he would come right down to check things out and fill my tank to hold me over till Monday. He was on time, very friendly and professional. We had a great talk about my system. I LOVE Jennings Oil and would highly recommend them to anyone in the community!” — Wendy Van B.

“John Stietzel was very knowledgeable, professional and helpful with our new fireplace insert setup! I will highly recommend Jennings!” — Debbie S.

“Your guys are just great. They are pleasant and professional and they have been that for several years now. I look forward to them coming to my home.” — Judy M.
