What Should You Know Before Choosing a Heating Oil Business
This video provides information about how to choose an oil heating business.
As cold weather begins, you may be considering finding a new oil company. You may need to decided if you want to lock into an oil price or let the market ride. You do not want to lock into a price based on what you think the market is going to be and if you think you will save money. You want to lock into a price for a heating oil contract that makes the most sense for your family.
If you are consistently buying, the average over the long run will even out.
You want to make sure the heating oil business is registered with the department of consumer protection. You also want to ensure the heating oil business has proper insurance coverage to cover themselves and the customer. If a business has neither, you do not want to do business with them.
You should also know that pay in advance contracts are prohibited. It is illegal for a heating oil business to offer it. If a business does offer it, it is a red flag.
