Oil & Gas Safety Tips

Seasonal-Unoccupied Homes

No matter how you heat your home, maintaining your oil heat or natural gas heat to a certain level is critical. Freeze-ups in an occupied/empty or unoccupied dwelling or home can cause expensive losses. Water from broken pipes can flood a house in a matter of hours causing structural damage to the house and loss of personal property.

Remember that you have a responsibility to protect your home against damage arising from a drop in or loss of heat. This scenario can result in frozen pipes and water damage.

You should arrange for supervision of your home if you plan to be away from the premises for any length of time. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Fuel Delivery Lines

As our valued customer, we would like to make you aware of a potential problem that could occur with an unprotected fuel delivery line. These unprotected fuel delivery lines are made of copper and if in contact with concrete or below ground, may deteriorate, resulting in a line leak. In the event of such a leak, oil could be released, causing environmental damage that will require a costly cleanup.

To avoid this exposure, both financially and personally, we suggest that you have your fuel delivery line updated to a new, protected material.
