As cold winters arrive, it is important to do all that one can to prepare. One of them is to make sure that your home heating system is running efficiently. When you use heating oil, you will have to make sure that your tank has enough heating oil. This will require a fuel oil delivery from a professional fuel delivery company. As you prepare for your oil delivery, there are some things to do first. These tasks will help make things easier for your delivery guys. This article discusses some tips to help you best prepare for a #2 heating oil delivery. This will keep your heating system up and running for the frigid winter months.
Clear Away Fall Leaves And Shrubbery
Fall leaves are beautiful. However, there can become a hindrance should they get in and around drains, pipe, and so forth. Similarly, shrubbery is an important feature of beautiful landscaping. Still, if they are located around the fill pipe area of your home, they can hinder your heating oil delivery men from being able to easily access the same. As such, they should be properly cleared away.
Making Your Home And Fill Pipe Visible And Accessible
As fall gives way to winter, beautiful orange, and brown leaves give way to bright white snow. As beautiful as snow can be, it can make every house look the same. Also, it can become dangerous to traverse when slippery. Both of these realities can become problematic for delivery men trying to deliver #2 heating oil to your home. Therefore, shoveling snow to ensure your driveways are clear and accessible, as well as the areas around the filling pipe. Also important is ensuring that the lot or street number for your home is clearly visible from the street. This allows the delivery men know which house is yours. Finally, ensure that the fill pipe for the oil tank you wish to fill is clearly identified by a distinguishing mark.
Leave The Gate Open
If your fuel oil delivery men need to go through an access gate to get to the fill pipe, then you will need to make sure that they can safely and easily access the gate. Therefore, if you normally leave the gate locked, then leave it unlocked for the fuel oil delivery men.
Anything can happen on the day of delivery and before that may require your attention or input. In the event that there is an emergency or an occurrence that needs your attention, the delivery men will need to contact you. Therefore, it is important to give them your best contact (preferably mobile) number. This allows them to contact you quickly. Even in the event that all goes smoothly and the delivery men wish to confirm arrival on, and completion, of the job, a contact number is still very useful.
