Now that the new year has arrived, many folks are taking stock of their to-do lists for 2023 and reevaluating their priorities. All household equipment and appliances eventually require maintenance, but is regular service truly worthwhile? On the other hand, do you have systems in your home that have been downright neglected and could use some TLC, stat? Read on to learn more about why, when, and how often your HVAC system needs to be serviced.
Routine maintenance, a.k.a. your annual tune-up, is a critical component of home heating-system care, for boiler systems, furnace systems and water heaters. Tune-ups make your equipment more reliable as well as more efficient. Increased efficiency means you’ll see lowered fuel bills—plus, your home will be more comfortable.
Annual tune-ups are considered a best practice in the HVAC industry. But, some equipment can benefit from maintenance during or near their busiest season. Depending on the type of HVAC system you have, it could be advantageous to have your air conditioner serviced in the spring, and your heating system serviced in the early fall. Your Swezey energy expert can assess your specific equipment and give individually tailored recommendations.
Should your tune-up turn up any problems with your HVAC equipment, you’ll need a team with the know-how to get the job done accurately—and quickly. That’s because with today’s sophisticated equipment, heating-system repair and service is more technically challenging than ever.
Fortunately, Swezey’s expert team is equipped with up-to-date training in the latest technologies and ready for any heating equipment repair. Whether your system is new or old, they’ll find the right fix for your system and your budget. Don’t be left in the cold—keep your home warm and cozy with round-the-clock heating-equipment repair from Swezey.
The good news for our customers is that Swezey’s heating service plans include comprehensive tune-ups and help you keep your equipment for longer, and with fewer repairs. Quality service plans like Swezey’s enable:

The term “heating oil” conjures up different pictures for different folks. Because old-fashioned heating oil once held a reputation as being “dirty,” some people may still think about smelly, smoky heating oil from their grandma’s generation. The good news though – both for heating oil consumers and the environment – is that modern heating oil is a choice you can be proud of, since heating oil has only gotten better with time! In fact, heating oil has continued to evolve to be cleaner and greener, just within the last decade. Read on to learn more about what heating oil actually is, and how it differs from other types of oils – including its evolution from conventional heating oil to today’s cleaner, modern version.
As mentioned above, recent advances in technology have allowed heating oil to burn cleaner, be more efficient and be better for the earth. But what does that mean for modern heating oil consumers?
At Swezey, we proudly deliver Bioheat fuel to our customers. Offering a range of benefits and advantages over conventional heating oil, Bioheat fuel can:
So, what is Bioheat fuel, exactly? It is the heating oil industry’s official name for a fuel that consists of a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products, including soybean oil, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and algae.
Yes, that’s right – heating oil can be made by recycling other types of oils! Plus, with these natural and organic ingredients, it’s no wonder modern heating oil is so much cleaner than in the past. Just take a look at how the numbers stack up:
The evolution from traditional heating oil to the Bioheat fuel we deliver means you can be confident in your choice to rely on modern heating oil for your home comfort.
At Swezey, we know what’s important to you as a modern heating oil customer: fast answers with no runaround; accurate, timely deliveries; and friendly, honest, high-quality service when and where you need it. We’re family-owned for over 100 years, and we have solid relationships with our trusted suppliers, meaning we can pass those benefits on to you.
Whether you’re new to Suffolk County or looking for a new heating oil supplier, we’re here for your home comfort. Contact us with your questions and we can help satisfy all of your heating oil needs. We’d love to welcome you to the Swezey Fuel family. Become a customer today!
On October 5, OPEC announced it was slashing production by two million barrels a day. Within just three days, our suppliers increased the cost of heating oil by 70 cents per gallon. That’s right, 70 cents per gallon.
This is not just impacting heating oil. Expect natural gas, electricity, gasoline, and propane to move higher too. Of course, this is not simply about supply and demand. We’ve learned that when prices move this far this fast, you can always see the impact of Wall Street firms that jump to take advantage of the momentum to make a quick buck. (Or should we say millions of bucks?) It frustrates the heck out of us.
Of course, things can turn around just as quickly. We saw prices spike in spring only to drop by over a dollar in summer. There are just too many variables to know where things will go from here.
We go the extra mile to keep you safe and warm; we will be there when you need us.

Unsurprisingly, we’ve been getting many calls around two connected issues: the surge in fuel prices and supply concerns. People are astounded by how much prices have risen and how fast. So are we. They are also concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine shocked energy markets, sending crude oil to record territory.
To give you a sense of how this affects your heating oil price, in early March, we received notice at night from our suppliers that their prices were going up 20 cents per gallon the next day. The next day, prices went up three more times—a total of 60 cents in just 24 hours. Prices continued to surge—a total of $1.25 in one week. Normally, they might change 5 cents in a week.
We don’t know where things will go from here. One thing we can tell you is that we hate this as much as you do. Some people are under the misconception that when prices rise, we make more money. The opposite is true. People cut back on usage. They have trouble paying their bills, and our receivables skyrocket. Meanwhile, we must pay our suppliers in just ten days. We must borrow much more from the bank. It is an awful mess for everyone.
One thing you can count on is that we will not let you run out. We have been in business for more than 100 years and have very strong relationships with suppliers and financial institutions. We are already getting calls from customers who are with other companies that can’t say the same. These customers are unable to get deliveries for 20 days out. You don’t have to worry about that with us.
If you are having trouble paying your bill, talk to us before it becomes a problem. Many times, we can work out something to give you more time, especially if you’ve been with us a while. We can also set you up on a monthly payment plan.
Nothing will make us happier than when prices start dropping. Until then, trust us to look out for you, and let’s pray for the people of Ukraine.

Are you considering upgrading to a new boiler or furnace for your home? If so, you have a lot of things to consider, including the cost. Swezey is here to help! We sell, install, and service high-efficiency heating systems, and our affordable service plans help protect them with regular maintenance tune-ups and coverage of many parts and labor costs for repairs.
Some brands of boilers and furnaces cost more than others. But there’s more than just the name you must look at, and we’re here to help. We will go through your options to make sure that you get the best quality and energy efficiency you can afford in your new heating system.
As you have likely seen in the news in recent months, supply chain issues lingering from the COVID-19 pandemic are plaguing a wide range of industries. The HVAC industry has been affected as well, between labor shortages and shortages in materials such as copper and aluminum.
Swezey has worked hard to maintain reliable access to top-quality heating systems from our suppliers. If your home’s furnace or boiler is getting on in years and not performing as smoothly or efficiently, it is wise not to wait to begin the process of upgrading to a new one. We’ll come out and look over your furnace or boiler and give you a FREE estimate for a new one.
Where your heating system is located in your home can have an impact on the cost of installing it. The cost of installation may be higher if it is difficult to install in the desired location. Since a larger space may need a bigger unit, the size of your home can greatly impact both the price of the heating system as well as installation. The price will also be affected if the new furnace or boiler requires more space or is moved to a different location in your home.
If you currently have an electric furnace and are looking to upgrade to the efficiency and comfort of an oil-fired heating system, for example, it’s going to cost more. You will have to add a heating oil tank to your home and oil lines to your home and possibly make other adjustments.
If you have added finished space to your home since you last replaced your boiler or furnace, such as a home addition or a finished basement or attic, we’ll make sure that your new heating system is able to meet that added need. You will need to add ductwork to those spaces if you hadn’t already, which will add to your cost.
Recent years have shown us the importance of clean, healthy air in your home. If you are upgrading to a new furnace, you may choose to add indoor air quality equipment such as air purifiers or humidity control, which will be an additional expense.
Swezey is your one-stop shop for home heating system installation and service. Contact us today to get started and don’t forget to ask about our service plans!

The bottom line? You’ll want to make sure your AC is in good working order for the next time you need it – whether that’s tomorrow afternoon, or not until spring. There’s no reason to be uncomfortable in your home, and with a few energy-saving tips, you can protect and preserve your investment in your AC system, so it’s ready when you need it.

While high temperatures themselves don’t directly put your air conditioner in a tailspin, we all know that cooling units must work a lot harder when it’s super-hot outside. The extra effort required of air conditioners when it’s sweltering puts added stress and strain on your cooling equipment. So, what can you do? Read on to learn the ins and outs of operating your A/C during the hottest months of the year, and how some tweaks can make a big difference for your unit’s longevity – and your energy bills.
Much like with humans, the older and more out-of-shape an air conditioner is, the more likely it is that the strain of later life and extreme conditions will take its toll. There’s no magic number that can cause your air conditioner to kick the bucket, but technicians have noted that older model A/Cs really start to struggle when temperatures outside approach 100 degrees and stay that way for days or weeks at a time.
Finding that balance between being comfortable in your own home and reducing the stress on your cooling equipment can be a challenge. If you are facing this dilemma, consider:
Whether your A/C needs repair, maintenance, or an upgrade, Swezey is the place to be. Our highly trained, Suffolk County–based team of expert A/C technicians can service all makes, models and systems—old and new—for your home or business.
We’re here for all your Suffolk County home comfort needs and can’t wait for you to join the Swezey Fuel family.
The cost of heating oil and other fuels has increased dramatically over the past year. For our budget-conscious customers, we have put together a program to cap further price increases while also providing protection if the price manages to drop over the next heating season.
Our Price Cap program is good news for our customers, since we are currently able to cap your price $.70 less than the current market rate, as winter future prices are lower than the current price of heating oil. The cost for Swezey to provide downward protection is about $500 for an average home, but we have reduced that cost to $396+tax or, $36 per month added to your budget. That means you’ll be protected both from rising costs, as well as losing out on more optimal pricing if costs fall significantly.
To illustrate, consider this example capped price set at $5.399:
The bottom line is that with the Price Cap program, you’ll be protected from skyrocketing prices – without being married to a mediocre rate if prices fall. So, as you can see, being on a capped budget plan is an excellent offer that can really benefit your costs. Please contact us for the current capped rate, or you can enroll online.
Serving Long Island for more than four generations, we have learned that every customer’s financial circumstances and budgeting needs are different. That’s why we offer Swezey customers our Price Cap program, among several ways to save. Our fuel experts can assess your particular situation and help you weigh your options for what works best for your family.
For over a century, we’ve kept families and businesses in Suffolk County and the surrounding area comfortable with high-quality heating oil and related services. If you’re looking for a delivery, in need of an equipment upgrade or just have a general question for our friendly team, we look forward to hearing from you and hope you’ll become part of the Swezey family!
