As temperatures start falling, the price of fuel typically starts rising. DVFDA Oilheat dealers who serve Philadelphia, Montgomery, Bucks, Chester and Delaware counties help soften the blow of the heating season’s fuel costs by offering a variety of ways to manage your fuel prices. Here are a few options that many dealers provide:
Budget Plans allow homeowners to make even monthly payments, instead of making payments that change as deliveries increase. The annual total is calculated before the heating season, so any extra deliveries are considered in the calculation.
Capped Price sets a maximum fuel cost for Oilheat users that they’ll never exceed during the heating season. And, if market prices should fall, you’ll benefit by paying the lower price.
Fixed Price locks in a set price for a given period of time that will neither go up nor down. You’ll always know how much you’re paying month to month, but you won’t benefit from dropping market prices. This also means you’ll be safe, however, from rising prices.
Pre-Buy gives homeowners a chance to purchase all of their fuel for the year through the dealer at a reduced cost. This allows you to have fuel you need locked in with a one-time payment, leaving you with no monthly bills to juggle.
Not all dealers offer these programs, and some may only be open during certain times of the year. Be sure to get all the information you can by using our Dealer Locator to find the Oilheat dealer near you who offers the services and pricing options you need. Contact DVFDA if you have any questions!
