How To Get Ready for the Heating Season Now

Posted: August 16, 2021

winter hvac prep north carolinaDon’t look now, but September is just around the corner — which means that before you know it, you’ll be reaching for the thermostat to take the chill out of the autumn air.

But we’re not there yet – which makes now the perfect time to take care of the little things that will make the transition from summer to fall and winter go a lot more smoothly in your North Carolina home.

Here are three things you can do right now to ease your way into heating season:

  1. Schedule your annual tune-upPreventive maintenance helps you to keep your heating equipment running at peak efficiency and fix small issues before they become big problems. The earlier you schedule your heating service, the better – not only will you avoid the early season rush, but you’ll also enjoy the performance benefits of a tune-up for a full season. You’ll also leave yourself time if you discover it makes sense to explore a heating system upgrade.
  2. Sign up for Auto-Fill – Want free peace of mind? Sign up for Auto-Fill from Cherry Energy. Our tracking system will estimate when you need fuel based on your past usage and the current local weather, we can deliver your propane or heating oil when your tank is about one-quarter full. You’ll never have to call for a delivery, look at a fuel gauge, or experience a fuel runout again, and you’ll get priority deliveries compared to Will Call service (a real plus in unpredictable weather).
  3. Sign up for a Cherry Energy Pricing Plan – With Cherry Energy’s Prebuy and Price Cap pricing options, you’ll rest easy knowing that the price of your oil will never go higher than it is when you enter into the contract – and with a price cap*, it could go lower. Of course you can always pay market price if you prefer – the choice is always yours.
