The 3 Biggest Heating Oil Scams:
Budget plans are supposed to help you right?
One of the biggest marketing companies in the heating industry tells their oil heat company clients, to offer budgets because:
"Budget Plans Put the Customers to Sleep"
- MARKETING RECOMMENDATION
I was in the board room of many oil companies (BIG and small)
and I was privy to many conversations like this:
"Once a customer was on a budget program
they were put to sleep and they didn't notice what they were actually paying per gallon"!
Every time I heard
"Put the customers to sleep"...
it sent chills up my spine!
I'm not saying that any heating oil companies are planning to rip you off.
What I am saying is;
"When it comes to choosing your oil company ...
You need to be careful."
Can your tech fool your heating system into burning more oil than it should?
YES, and it can cost you a lot more money.
Listen up and I’ll tell you exactly how it can be done.
Your burner is set to run using a specific nozzle that is designed to allow a certain amount of fuel per hour to flow into your system.
Each nozzle is set up and stamped on the side of each nozzle with a gallons per hour reading.
If you want to find out the correct nozzle suggested for your burner system it should be stamped on the burner along with the manufacturer information.
It’s usually found on a little plate right on the front of the burner.
Top nozzle manufacturers have developed nozzles that have smaller incremental sizes.
For example, it use to be that some nozzles were set in increments of a half gallon per hour or more.
The more sophisticated nozzles allow for incremental changes of as little as a .10 per gallon.
Doesn’t sound like much right?
But Let’s Do The Math
An average house burns about 1,000 gallons per average heating season.
At a larger nozzle size of just .10, the numbers can add up fast.
1,000 gallons X .1 gallons per hour =
an extra 100 gallons of fuel burned that season.
100 gallons of fuel X $6.50 a gallon =
an extra $650.00 per season sucked right out of your wallet.
Are you beginning to get the picture?
A special report on saving money on your heating oil bill here.
The fact is tune-ups act as insurance from breakdowns and burner failures.
That means getting a good tune-up reduces the risk of your heating system going down in the middle of winter because the nozzle in your system gets clogged or plugged up and your system fails.
Here’s the thing… there are over 30 steps to a good tune-up.
- you'll save money on fuel use
- help prevent and reduce breakdowns
- and reduce maintenance costs
Done correctly it'll save you money.
So how much does your tech do for you when you’re paying him to tune up your heating system?
There’s a complete tune-up video and checklist in my special report here.
Here’s a BIG tip…
Even though the tech is supposed to change your oil filter, what kind of filter is he using?
According to top nozzle manufacturing experts, paper filters are finer than felt or woven filters and they will filter your oil better than the other filters available.
What kind of filter do you have in your system?
Don’t think it’s a big deal?
Statistics show that 87% of heating system failures occur because of a clogged nozzle.
So when it’s 5 below, your teeth are chattering and you’re wondering if your pipes are freezing and you’re waiting for your oil tech to come to fix your system you just might be reconsidering the type of filter you’re using in your system.
