What makes us different from the rest?

fall 21 newsletterDear Friends,
Going out of our way for our neighbors and friends has been a part of our DNA since our founding. While the range of our products and services has grown considerably over the years, one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to serving the people who matter most to us: you, our loyal customers.

We believe that the trust of our customers is something we must earn and keep every day, with every heating oil delivery, with every equipment installation and repair or service call and with anytime a customer contacts us for help or advice.

We give our customers peace of mind with services like automatic delivery, 24/7 emergency no-heat service, and 24/7 phone access where a friendly, local voice answers— not some stranger in a faraway call center.

And because we’re family owned and locally based, we are deeply connected to the communities we serve. That connection manifests itself in the many ways our company and our staff serve our communities.

As we enter fall and the weather cools down, we look forward to continuing to serve you and to keeping your household comfortable every single day.

bobbyAs part of the Swezey family for 33 years, Bobby Palladino serves as a driver and service technician. He spends his time doing both oil deliveries and service calls for customers throughout the area. When he’s delivering, he makes anywhere from 25 to 28 stops in a single day.

“The people are very nice,” he says, referring to the Swezey team, and notes that he enjoys working for Bruce, Gary, Kent and Michael. “They’re good people.”

When he’s not at work, Bobby enjoys spending time with his family, including his four grown children. He likes to play soccer and follows NASCAR, which he tries to
attend in person a few times a year. “I usually go for the underdogs,” he says, adding, “there’s a lot of young talent coming in now.”

Protecting your loved ones

With our third-party notification program, family members and close friends will never lose heat due to an unpaid bill. If we don’t hear from someone about a bill, we’ll contact their designated third party to make sure they are OK.

The third party bears no financial responsibility, but with this program vital fuel deliveries are guaranteed to be uninterrupted.

We want you to feel good about protecting your loved ones from an unnecessary loss of heat. Please contact us today to enroll.

Ask the expert

Q: My oil boiler is getting old. What should I do?

A: If you think your oil boiler is ready to retire, please contact us to come take a look. If it is indeed time for an upgrade, we can point you in the right direction and help you select a system that works within your space and budget. The latest systems take up far less space than older systems, and with an upgrade you can expect to see 20% to 30% savings in energy costs, based on the high level of efficiency of new boilers.

Ready for winter?

truckAs the cold weather approaches, we encourage you to take advantage of our many programs and services. If you haven’t had a tune-up in the past year, set up your appointment now. This way, if an upgrade is in order, you’ll have time to take care of it before heating season really kicks in.

In addition, if you are not already participating in one of our payment plans or a service plan, contact us to learn more— these are great ways to save money long-term and to make things more convenient this winter and throughout the year.

If there’s snow on the ground, please clear your driveway as well as a path to your tank, and if you have an underground tank, please “flag” the fill pipe so it’s easy to find.

Save On Your Spring Energy Bills: 9 Cost-Effective Ways

energy bill new yorkSpring 2021 has officially begun – but that doesn’t mean your heating equipment is finished for the season – after all, temperatures in Suffolk County can dip into the 50s well into June).
But with a little planning and some simple changes around the house, you can keep those bills as low as possible. Here are some cost-effective ways to help you save energy in the weeks ahead.

9 Energy Saving Tips

  1. Program your thermostat – Proper use of your thermostat could help you save you up to 10 percent on your home energy bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
  2. Weatherize – Now that temperatures are tolerable, it’s a good time to caulk any air leaks around exterior doors and windows that might have widened over the winter. While you’re at it, try replacing door weatherstripping that might have worn away.
  3. Add to your insulation – Most homes – especially older ones – are under-insulated. Adding enough to meet recommended R-Values is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your home’s overall efficiency and comfort.
  4. Change filters regularly – If you have a forced-air system (one with vents rather than radiators or baseboards), the most important maintenance tasks you have is to check air filters regularly, cleaning or changing them when needed. Clogged filters rob your furnace of efficiency by making it overwork to keep you warm; that means higher heating bills and more wear and tear on your equipment.
  5. Drop your water heater’s thermostat temperature – Did you know that about one-fifth of your home’s energy bill comes from heating water? One easy way to save on that part of your bill is to lower the temperature of your water heater’s thermostat from the factory setting (usually 140°F) to 120°F. You’ll save more than 10 percent on your water heating bill and you’ll never know the difference.
  6. Use the sun to your advantage – Keep curtains and shades open in sun-exposed rooms to absorb all that great heat and energy during the day, then close them at night to keep it in at night. Smart window treatments can help manage solar energy throughout the year.
  7. Close your fireplace damper – An open fireplace damper is like an open window; close it when you are not using your hearth.
  8. Keep vents and baseboards clear – Move any furniture, drapery or rugs that keep heat from circulating into the room.
  9. Service your equipment – When it comes to saving money on energy bills, there’s no substitute for routine annual maintenance from an experienced home heating professional. A seasoned technician will help you spot problems early, replacing worn parts before they cost you with diminished efficiency and eventual heating repairs.

Stay warm and save money this heating season with these cost-effective tips and tricks. Want another smart tip? Replace your old, inefficient boiler or furnace with a new, high-efficiency heating system from Swezey.
An oil furnace or boiler upgrade could save you as much as 30-40 percent on your heating bills every month – enough to pay for the replacement in just a few years.
