Posted: September 4, 2018

Now that Labor Day 2018 is officially behind us, it’s time to start preparing for the heating season to come here in Southern Maine and New Hampshire.

Here are five things you can do to make your transition to fall go more smoothly:

  1. Enroll in SimplePay – Avoid unwanted heating bill surprises by signing up for our SimplePay monthly budget program. We’ll estimate what you pay for your propane or heating oil deliveries based on your past usage (or an average for a home your size in your area, if you choose to become a new P. Gagnon customer), then spread that cost over the year, giving you predictable monthly payments.
  2. Consider a Price Protection PlanCheck out our Price Protection options here – or contact us directly to see what program is right for you.
  3. Sign up for Automatic Delivery – Running out of fuel can be inconvenient, costly, and even dangerous here in the Seacoast area. But with Automatic Delivery – available for your propane or heating oil – you can avoid that hassle and never have to check your fuel gauge again. The best part? Automatic Delivery is FREE.
  4. Learn how to program your thermostat – If you don’t make full use of your programmable thermostat, you’re missing out on one of easiest ways to save on monthly heating bills; in fact, learning how to set your thermostat properly can cut your energy bills by 10 percent or more, says the U.S. Department of Energy. If you don’t own a programmable thermostat, let us know – we have several economical, easy-to-use models to choose from.
  5. Schedule your preventive maintenance – You paid a lot for your home furnace, boiler, water heater or A/C system; protect that investment with a P. Gagnon & Son Service Plan, which includes an annual tune-up and much more. If you own your heating oil tank, sign up for TankSure®, too: you’ll get annual oil tank inspections, corrosion protection, and even a $1,000 tank replacement coverage.
