Your Heating Season Checklist
Test your heating system.
Check that the thermostat is in the “heat” or “on” position, turn it up at least 10 degrees higher than the room temperature, listen carefully for your heating equipment to switch on, and if it doesn’t, press the reset button on your burner’s relay once. If your heating system still doesn’t switch on, call Phillips Energy.
Sign up for automatic delivery.
You won’t have to worry about running out of propane or heating oil, or calling to schedule a delivery. Instead, Phillips Energy will take care of everything for you.
Enroll in a Heating Service Agreement.
You’ll enjoy a free annual cleaning and preventive maintenance, 10 percent discounts on parts and labor needed for repairs, and greater peace of mind, knowing that your equipment is serviced by a certified Phillips Energy technician.
Schedule your heating system’s annual tune-up.
Preventive maintenance can improve your system’s efficiency by up to five percent or more, protect you against an untimely mid-season breakdown, and extend the life span of your heating equipment.
Keep a shovel handy.
Upper Tidewater doesn’t get nearly as much snow as our neighbors up north, but we all know how unpredictable winter weather can be, so please remember to clear a path to your tank, mark your fill pipe, and most importantly, stay safe and exercise caution this winter!
