IT Landes Home Service Team has an oil payment plan for every budget. Choose you method of payments from the following options.

Purchase your fuel oil in advance based on an estimate of how much you’ll use over the course of the heating season. An IT Landes® home heating expert can help you estimate this amount based on your home’s historical usage and weather conditions in your area.

Pre-Buy allows you to:

  • Lock in a pre-season price, so you won’t be affected if prices rise.
  • Make a single payment for the total amount of oil you’re purchasing prior to the start of the heating season.

One risk of pre-buying is purchasing too little oil and having to purchase additional gallons later in the season at market value, which may be higher than the pre-season price.

Pay for your fuel oil via even monthly payments that are calculated based on your previous usage.

With Smart Pay you get:

  • Predictable monthly payments that are ideal for customers who are on a budget.
  • No unexpectedly high heating bills during the heating season.

There is no risk associated with Smart Pay; however, some customers don’t like paying for heating oil during the off-season summer months.

With price cap you’ll never pay more than a predetermined price per gallon for your heating oil. If the price of oil goes down, you pay the lower price. If the price of oil goes up, you’re protected and pay no more than the agreed upon capped rate.

With Price Cap:

  • You’re protected from unexpected spikes in the market.
  • You purchase your fuel oil from IT Landes for the term of the contract.

You do not have to be on a Smart Pay plan to take advantage of a price cap, but many customers opt to include price cap protection along with a monthly payment plan.

IT Landes Home Service Team has an oil payment plan for every budget. Choose you method of payments from the following options.

With Pay-As-You-Go, you pay the current market price at the time of delivery.

With Pay-As-You-Go:

  • There is no obligation to purchase a minimum amount of fuel oil.
  • You can switch suppliers at any time without having to break a contract.

The downsides are fluctuating oil prices and the potential for periodic, large oil bills. If a market event drives oil prices up, you’ll be paying the higher price, and you’ll be paying the total amount at the time of delivery.

FAQ

Purchasing fuel oil can be confusing with the many programs and pricing structures available. Let the IT Landes Home Service Team help. Below are our most frequently asked questions about fuel oil. For additional assistance, call 215-256-4221.

Is your fuel oil price the “best price in town?”

This answer depends on your definition of the “best price.” We always urge our clients to compare more than actual prices. What are the hidden fees, if any? What are the enrollment or service charges? Most importantly – and something people often miss – is the price being quoted a special deal designed to secure your business? Will that price expire after a certain time period?

When reviewing prices, ask questions, read the fine print and be sure to compare all the details of one proposal to another.

How can I tell a good fuel oil provider from one that might leave me shivering on a cold night?

This goes hand in hand with the previous answer. Price is important, but there is more to consider when signing an oil contract. Does the dealer offer service in addition to fuel oil delivery? (This is important to know. You don’t want to find yourself without a contracted repair source if your equipment breaks down on a cold winter night.) Can the dealer guarantee a steady supply of oil all winter? (This goes to reputation and buying power.) What is the “service order” of the dealer? (Are there “rules” that allow some customers to enjoy guaranteed service while others wait their turn?)

Service is very important to consider. What service hours does a dealer have? And what program do you need to enroll in to get service after hours, weekends or holidays if you need it? Is equipment maintenance included in the price – or not?

Will prices be high this year? What will happen?

Unfortunately, we can’t answer this kind of pricing question, but we wish we could! Predicting the cost of any commodity, particularly one as volatile as oil, is difficult (if not impossible). Because we don’t want to mislead our customers, we won’t risk making price predictions that are inaccurate.

We see other oil companies using different names for their programs. How many price protection options exist?

There are only two kinds of price protection: locking in prices and capping prices. Locking in the price fixes the price you will pay during a season. Capping a price establishes a maximum price you will pay during a season, but the price you pay will fluctuate for the duration of that season.

It’s just as important to carefully research your local fuel oil company as it is to research your program options. Ask friends and family for referrals. Ask suppliers for references and ask about licensing. Ask any question that helps you make an informed decision. Selecting the wrong fuel oil provider can leave you out in the cold when you need comfort the most.

There is a lot of talk about helping customers reduce spending on heating and cooling costs. Can you guarantee that your price protection plan will save money?

Reducing your heating and cooling costs differs from helping you protect and predict your fuel oil price. We cannot guarantee that you’ll save money on fuel oil, but we can help you understand and budget for your fuel oil.

If there are no guarantees about the market price, or my potential savings, do I really need Price Protection?

The answer to this question really depends on your preferences and what you want to spend to protect your budget from market changes. Some of our customers buy fuel oil using the day-to-day market price without any negative consequences. However, this strategy is risky because the market can change very quickly. Going with the daily market price can give you flexibility, but no protection if costs soar.
