Tune-Ups And Tank Protection

Heating system tune-ups & tank protection

tune ups


Heating systems operate for months on end and need regular maintenance—just like your car. Regular maintenance keeps your system working at peak efficiency and also gives our technicians a chance to catch minor wear and tear before it turns into major trouble down the road.

A heating tune-up keeps your burner working efficiently, which can cut annual fuel use by as much as 10%. It also ensures that your system operates safely.

The best time to schedule your tune-up

Some customers wait until fall and the first cold temperatures to ask us for a tune-up. Unfortunately, that’s a busy time for us because we’re also responding to our first wave of no-heat calls.

That’s why we encourage you to schedule your tune-up between April 1 and Labor Day. It’s easier to get a convenient service appointment during the warm weather months.

Please keep in mind that tune-ups do not wear off. So even if your system is tuned up a few months before the heating season, it will still be in top condition and ready to go when you turn it on in the fall.

We try to call or send reminder cards to all of our customers to schedule their annual tune-ups in the spring and summer. However, you can make scheduling more convenient for yourself if you contact us with a time that works best for you.

Tank Protection


Our TankSure® program eliminates oil storage tank worries. This program gives you:

  • an annual tank inspection to detect corrosion early
  • a $1,800 tank replacement warranty

Preventing fuel problems with UltraGuard

Plugged nozzles, clogged filters and pump screens can impede the flow of oil in your heating equipment, leaving you with an inefficient system—or worse, causing your system to shut down.

That’s why, before we deliver any oil to your tank, we treat it with a special blend of additives called UltraGuard. This prevents the buildup of impurities like sludge in your oil storage tank.

Most additives contain solvents, but UltraGuard does not. If solvents are used to treat oil, in older systems they will cause sediment to break free and clog components.

When we started delivering UltraGuard, we experienced a 20%-30% reduction in fuel-related service calls in the first year of use. Now, problems related to clogged filters and lines have virtually been eliminated!


Because it reduces impurities in your fuel, UltraGuard makes your system run cleaner and more efficiently, lowering fuel consumption and emissions. That’s good for your wallet and the environment. UltraGuard also extends the life of your tank because it contains corrosion inhibitors and built-in cleaning agents.

Because we feel strongly that every one of our customers should benefit from this fuel enhancement, we provide it to all our customers at no extra charge. Contact us to find out more.
