Essential Worker Appreciation During COVID-19

Circumstances caused by the global Coronavirus pandemic have shaken up everything we know about “normal” life in New Hampshire. While many of us are spending more time at home, members of the essential workforce continue to provide services to our communities. We’d like to take a moment to sincerely thank the medical professionals, grocery store employees, sanitation workers, teachers, and many others that go in to work each day during these uncertain times. 

Among these workers are employees of oil heat and energy providers. Heating oil and HVAC companies have remained open with adjusted operations in order to continue to provide the necessary heat and comfort services that New Hampshire homes and businesses require to stay safe. If you need a heating oil delivery, an emergency HVAC service visit, or assistance preparing for a future installation or project, know that your heating oil company is still here to serve you.

Safe Heating Oil and HVAC from New Hampshire Service Providers

In order to continue to provide essential services to customers, heating oil companies have adjusted daily operations to comply with CDC guidelines and proper safety protocol. Here are some tips to use when contacting your local heating oil supplier during COVID-19: 

  • Check office hours
    Most heating oil and HVAC service companies have temporarily closed their offices to the public. Office hours may have been adjusted, too. Visit your heating oil provider’s website for updates regarding office hours and procedures so that you have the most up-to-date information.
  • Prepare for your next heating oil delivery
    It’s been a chilly spring here in New Hampshire. And with more time spent at home, that means more heating oil usage. When you request a spring heating oil delivery, you can do simple things like keep a clear path to your oil fill pipe and unlatch any gates or fences in the way to help your fuel delivery driver access your oil tank safely with minimal contact.
  • Follow social distancing during HVAC service visits
    Full-service heating oil and HVAC providers are still available for emergency HVAC service visits. If you need heating service for your oil boiler or furnace, don’t be afraid to call your provider! Service technicians are wearing protective gear, utilizing social distancing, and following safety measures to protect themselves and customers when performing service work.
  • Ask about remote quotes
    Were you planning to upgrade your oil heating system this spring? Contact your heating oil company to see if they offer remote quotes. Many companies are using virtual or telephone quotes to help homeowners stay on track with projects in a safe way.
  • Never hesitate to reach out
    Remember, we’re all in this together. You’ve been able to count on your heating oil company during blizzards, below-freezing temperatures, and power outages. If you have questions or need assistance, contact your local heating oil company.
