Home Heating Fuel Degree Days Automatic Delivery Program Ensures You Won’t Run Out When It’s Most Needed

Burke Petroleum always strives to provide our customers with the best service possible. Our Degree Days Automatic Delivery Program is just one example of our commitment to superior customer service.

Our automatic delivery program provides our customers the convenience of not having to call and schedule home heating fuel deliveries, as well as offering the peace of mind that they will not run out of fuel during the cold weather. Automatic deliveries are made at predetermined increments based on a special mathematical formula that takes a number of factors into consideration, including:

  • Usage history – what constitutes a comfortable indoor temperature for you
  • Base temperature – the outside temperature above which the home needs no heating
  • Daily outside air temperature
  • Other factors, such as:
    • Insulation levels
    • Amount of solar radiation reaching the interior of a house
    • Number of operating electrical appliances (e.g. computers raise their surrounding temperature)
    • Amount of wind outside
    • Indoor relative humidity
