There are a number of good reasons to switch to a propane company in Montgomery County on an average day, from the better rates to the environmental friendliness. At GasTec, we know that better than anyone! However, there are some particularly compelling reasons to make the switch during the summer and early fall. Here are some of the factors that make now the best time to convert your heating system over:
1. More Scheduling Time – In the summer, your home heating needs will be practically nonexistent and your hot water heater will be under significantly less pressure. Thus, you will have some leisure time to decide about updating your system that you may not have if your old setup goes in the middle of winter. Because there are fewer people who are desperate to replace their heating systems in summer, there is less demand for services, installations, and repairs. What this means for you is that we are in a better position to visit you and set up an installation schedule at your convenience than we might be at other, more demanding times of year.
2. Prices Are Lower in Summer – For reasons of supply and demand, propane often comes at lower rates when the weather is warm. In consequence, setting up a new system and getting your propane tank filled now will represent the best value for your money. If you wait much longer, the prices will rise again for the season, and you will have to contemplate whether converting is worth it in winter. Speaking of which . . .
3. You Don’t Want to Be Stuck in Transition when the Weather Turns – There are very few things that are as unpleasant or uncomfortable as having no heat or inadequate heat when it’s 22° outside. And Pennsylvania is known for having cold and sometimes even harsh winters. The last thing that you want is to wait until your current system finally conks out, leaving you with few options and possible last-minute scheduling issues. Having the work done should never feel like a disagreeable thing that you have to put up with – no matter how happy you are with the end result!
