BUDGET PLAN (OIL OR PROPANE)

Customers may manage their heating budget by choosing a Budget Plan consisting of 10 equal monthly payments. Service Oil Company will estimate the probable annual consumption based on normal winter weather, fuel prices and individual usage history. At the beginning of the heating season, all budget customers receive ten coupons for equal payments beginning in September and ending in June. In July, refunds are made for any overpayment, or invoices are sent if there are unpaid balances.

 

PRE-BUY PLAN TO GUARANTEE PRICE (OIL ONLY)

Pre-purchase your heating oil and you’re guaranteed a fixed oil price and automatic delivery for the entire heating season. With the dramatic volatility in energy prices, many of our customers are looking for ways to lock in their cost of fuel oil. Our Pre-Buy Plan does just that. Prior to the start of the heating season, Service Oil Company offers its customers the option to pay for a fixed number of gallons at the current market price. If the price goes up or down during the heating season, the customer’s price remains fixed. At the end of the heating season (April 30th), Pre-Buy customers will be reimbursed for any unused gallons purchased at the beginning of the season.

 

PRICE CAP PLAN (OIL ONLY)

If you’re concerned about increasing oil prices then our Price Cap Plan may be the one for you. For an annual enrollment fee, the price of your heating oil will be capped for the heating season. If the price of oil is lower than this capped price, you will receive the lower price at the time of your delivery. Please contact us for details.

 

Enrollment in the Pre-Buy Plans or the Price Cap Plan is available from August through October.
The Plan expires on April 30th.

LIHEAP

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, also known as LIHEAP, helps low-income families pay their heating bills. LIHEAP offers assistance in the form of a cash grant sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat. In Pennsylvania, the Department of Human Services (DHS) administers the LIHEAP program. For more information, visit http://www.dhs.pa.gov/citizens/heatingassistanceliheap/.
