What Are Automatic Oil Deliveries and Full-Service Contracts?
Full-service oil companies – such as Tragar Home Services, your Long Island green energy company – generally offer full oil heat system coverage, service contracts, budget plans, 24-hour emergency service, automatic deliveries, monthly payment plans and price-protection programs.

Furthermore, automatic heating oil delivery is generally the best way to save homeowners time and guarantee their peace of mind as cold weather hits because they “won’t have to worry about checking [their] fuel gauges, calling for deliveries or waiting for a fuel truck to arrive. Heating oil companies use state-of-the-art software that incorporates degree-day information to calculate each customer’s usage rate and schedules deliveries accordingly,” according to the New York State Oil Heating Association, Inc. (NYOHA).
The home heating specialists at Tragar provide homeowners with not only oil heat service coverage but also automatic deliveries, monthly payment plans and price-protection programs that can help put their minds at ease about heating system maintenance and any repairs that might arise as cold weather hits.
All of these options also allow homeowners to stay within budget without having to worry about rising oil costs in winter.
Benefits of Automatic Oil Deliveries and Full-Service Contracts
There are several advantages to signing up for automatic oil deliveries and full-service contracts from a full-service oil company such as Tragar. According to the Empire State Energy Association (ESEA), benefits include the following:
- Service plans encompass an annual cleaning, tuning and testing of the oil heating system, which is the reason most customers feel the cost of a service plan is worthwhile. “In fact, tests conducted by the Department of Energy have proven that a tune-up can lower a homeowner’s annual heating bill by as much as 10 percent,” notes the ESEA.
- Service contracts shield homeowners from unexpected repair costs and give them a “priority response,” says the ESEA. For example, at Tragar, oil service means 24-7 coverage, a two-hour response time to heating emergencies, two-hour scheduled appointment windows and service from professional, full-time Tragar technicians only.
- Automatic oil deliveries mean homeowners never have to worry about running low or out of oil. At Tragar, the exact day oil is delivered to a customer is determined by our computer that works with our weather monitoring system. Homeowners never have to check their tanks and don’t have to be home. We leave a metered delivery ticket showing the amount delivered and offer 30 days to pay the invoice. “Think of automatic delivery as a time-saver, which can ultimately save you money,” adds the ESEA.
