When you expand your use of propane appliances and rely on Walton’s for propane delivery, you’re going to see the savings.
Because propane is such an efficient fuel, your energy expenses will go down—especially if you replace inefficient electric appliances with propane models. Plus, at Walton’s, if you get both heating oil and propane from us, we reward you with a special “dual fuel” rate so you save money on each fuel delivery.
People in the Keystone State love the comfortable, consistent heat that’s delivered by a propane gas furnace, which produces much higher indoor air temperatures than electric heat pumps. This guarantees that you will stay warm and cozy during chilly winter nights.
People also love the terrific benefits of creating memorable meals with their propane gas stove/cooktop. From more precise cooking control to quicker temperature changes – especially for lowering or shutting off – propane gas is the way to go.
If you have an old wood-burning fireplace, it’s easy to convert to a safe, clean-burning propane gas insert.
With a fireplace that runs on propane gas, you’ll never have to get up and put another log on the fire or wait to make sure the fire is extinguished before you go to bed or leave the house.
You’ll get a better value too. With efficiency ratings over 90%, propane fireplaces can offer very efficient space heating to parts of a home. By comparison, traditional wood-burning fireplaces are only about 15% efficient. That’s because wood fireplaces use an open damper, which enables large amounts of heat to escape. In contrast, sealed propane gas fireplaces keep more heat radiating into the room—without any ashes and other mess to clean up.
Cut your clothes-drying costs in half with a propane-fueled dryer! These units take less time than electric dryers to reach the temperatures needed to dry clothes evenly.
Their moist heat also causes less wear and tear on your clothing, while the heat from electric dryers has been known to burn or discolor fabrics. Once your selected level of dryness is achieved, moisture-sensing controls turn your propane dryer off.
Keep these benefits in mind as you look for the propane dryer that’s right for you—whether it’s for a weekly laundry marathon or the occasional light load.
Propane water heaters offer roughly double the water recovery rate of electric models, yet they typically cost up to 30% less to operate. They take up less space while fueling some of the most efficient water heating technologies currently on the market. Propane water heaters also offer a higher level of accuracy when it comes to temperature adjustment, along with providing more installation choices and size options.
Finally, there are also many ways to enjoy your outdoor living space with propane without breaking your budget. It can be anything from grills, firepits and lighting to patio heaters and pool heaters.
If you already have multiple outdoor propane appliances, ask Walton’s to install a propane gas outlet box. This lets us connect all of your outdoor appliances to your main propane tank. You’ll never worry about running out of propane when you’re hosting a backyard barbecue!

There are many misconceptions about oil storage tanks that need to be addressed and cleared up. This is especially important if you’re buying or selling an oil-heated home. With that in mind, here are answers to some of the most common questions we get about heating oil tanks.
Heating oil tanks can last for decades, but like anything else, they eventually need to be replaced. Life spans vary depending on the humidity in the environment, the thickness of the tank’s wall and other factors. When tanks do fail, it’s hard to see it coming, because they generally erode from the inside out.
If your oil tank is more than 30 years old, it’s a good idea to look into your heating oil tank replacement options.
Besides getting periodic professional tank inspections, you should also do your own visual inspections because some trouble signs can actually be seen, including:
Besides just wearing out due to age, a heating oil tank can fail because of condensation on the inside. When there is a lot of empty space in an oil tank during the spring and summer, condensation can form along the inside walls. This eventually turns into sediment later, and, if ignored, can result in corrosion.
To avoid condensation from forming, you should keep your oil tank full during the warm-weather months.
The most common size for a residential heating oil tank is a 275-gallon aboveground tank. A general industry rule-of-thumb is that one or two-bedroom homes typically require a 275-gallon heating oil tank; three- or four- bedroom homes typically would need to go larger.
Because heating oil is biodegradable and safe to store inside the home, you can put your new leak-proof tank in a basement, closet or garage. You can also put it outside, near your house, garage, or outdoor space.
Yes. Computerized sonic or ultrasound methods are the preferred method for testing an underground (UG) tank because this doesn’t put any stress on the tank. Another method is to test the soil around the tank; soil borings are noninvasive and, in our area, tend to be less expensive than other test methods.
No, there are no current federal laws governing active, underground, residential storage tanks for heating oil.
Our experienced and skilled team of heating oil professionals will work with you from the beginning to ensure that you have the right size heating oil tank for your comfort needs, your heating system and the size of your home.
Once your tank is selected, our expert installation team will adhere to all industry regulations, guidelines and codes to handle a proper heating oil tank installation that’s safe and efficient.

Many people install mini-split systems for air conditioning because their home has no ductwork, But they get a bonus because this type of system also provides supplemental heat—which reduces oil or propane fuel consumption when temperatures are above the freezing mark.
The Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Systems we install also lets you say goodbye to the back-breaking work of putting in and taking out air conditioning window units every year.
Highly efficient Mitsubishi ductless units actually use less electricity to do the same job as a window air conditioner or a space heater. These units are compact, inconspicuous, and quiet.
In fact, according to Mitsubishi, many units operate as low as 19dB, which is quieter than a purring cat! The indoor units can be mounted almost anywhere. and all connect to one outdoor unit.
These units are perfect for:
Ductless systems give you the flexibility to enjoy a specific temperature in one room or multiple rooms. For your convenience, units come with wireless remote controls.
For each room where you want more cooling or heating, we will install a compact wall unit. We can mount multiple indoor units, which all connect via flexible tubing to one outdoor compressor. Only minimum drilling is necessary to complete the installation of your ductless system. The ductless experts at Walton’s can take you through all your options to determine which one makes the most sense for your needs and your budget.
From the moment we arrive at your home to install your new ductless heat pump to the moment we turn it on, you can expect the utmost courtesy and professionalism from every member of the Walton’s team. We will go about the installation process with as little disruption to your daily routine as possible. We will clean up after ourselves at the end of the day and return your home to you in the condition we found it. Every member of the Walton’s team is totally committed to your comfort, and our goal is always 100% customer satisfaction.
Besides top-quality mini-split installations, we’ll also take care of your mini-split maintenance and repairs to keep your ductless system operating at peak efficiency all year round.
In order to keep your ductless mini split working at top efficiency, schedule a professional check-up at least once a year. On your own, be diligent about cleaning air filters and keeping the outdoor unit free of debris or overgrown shrubbery. By maintaining your mini-split like this, you will save money and extend its life.

The water heater in your northern Pennsylvania home is very important. It provides all the warm and hot water you and your family need for bathing, washing dishes, cleaning clothes, washing hands, and more. In fact, on average, a home’s water heating needs make up about 20% of the home’s energy costs. Unfortunately, most people don’t spend much time thinking about their water heater until something goes wrong.
Water heaters don’t last forever. Your water heater might be close to the end of its life if it can’t keep up with your family’s need for hot water, if you’ve started to notice leaks coming from the bottom of your tank, or if it’s making strange sounds.
At Clyde S. Walton, we’ve installed thousands of new water heaters over the years. So, we know our way around a water heater. That includes traditional storage tank water heaters fueled by heating oil, electricity, and gas as well as extremely efficient propane tankless water heaters.
If you’re planning to stick with the water heater you already have for a bit longer, our service technicians have extensive experience performing repairs and providing preventative water heater maintenance to prolong the life of your water heater and keep it working as efficiently as possible.
Most water heaters don’t just fail out of the blue. There are usually warning signs beforehand. Here are some indicators that your water heater may be getting ready to break down and needs immediate attention from a professional:
If you think it’s time to replace your water heater, Walton can help. We offer free estimates. And this month you can save up to $100 on qualifying installation. But this offer ends at the end of the month, so don’t wait. Also, there are federal tax credits we can help you determine if you qualify for.
For more than 100 years, the communities of northern Pennsylvania have been able to count on Clyde S. Walton for exceptional service. Our satisfied customers live in Lansdale, Abington, Norristown, Warminster, Warrington, Horsham, West Norriton, and the surrounding towns in Montgomery and Bucks counties.

You’ve probably spent the last two years thinking about your family’s health even more than usual. Fortunately, there are effective vaccines and treatments for Covid-19 now, but it is still making people sick. Young children across the country are being hospitalized due to RSV (another respiratory illness). And experts are predicting this is going to be a particularly rough flu season. You’ve learned how to give your loved ones the best chance at not getting seriously ill when they go out into the world. You’ve worn masks and gotten vaccinated. You wash your hands thoroughly and always have hand sanitizer with you for those times when you can’t wash your hands.
With everything going on in the world, you want your northern Pennsylvania home to be your sanctuary—the place where you can rest and breathe easy. Your home protects you from all sorts of things like the weather and intruders. With the right indoor air quality products, it can also protect your family’s health.
Clyde S. Walton sells and installs top-quality whole-house humidifiers and air cleaners to improve the air quality in your home, protect your family’s health, and keep your family comfortable. Not sure what you and your family need? Our experienced and highly trained employees can help you determine which product is best suited to your home and then skillfully install it.
Why should care about your home’s indoor air quality? Covid is still spreading, flu season has begun, and RSV is a major concern to families with small children. As it gets colder and colder, your family will probably spend more time inside your home. So, it’s even more important that the air in your home be as clean and healthy as possible.
Clyde S. Walton installs top-of-the-line indoor air quality equipment from trusted manufacturers. Both humidifiers and air cleaners contribute to your family’s comfort and health.
It might not seem obvious, but humidifiers help protect your family’s health. In properly humidified air, you’re less suspectable to colds, the flu, and other respiratory ailments. Properly humidified air can also help alleviate asthma and allergy symptoms whereas overly dry air can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms. As an added bonus, properly humidified air feels warmer, so you’ll be able to lower the thermostat without sacrificing comfort and enjoy lower heating bills.
Clyde S. Walton installs top-quality whole-house humidifiers from AprilAire. These units connect directly to your cooling and heating system. And you can control your home’s humidity level through your thermostat.
Today’s homes are more energy efficient than ever. That’s a great thing when it comes to keeping your home at just the right temperature, but it also means air impurities like mold spores and germs that enter your home are likely to stay in your home. In fact, according to the EPA, indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. An air cleaner can make your home a healthier and safer place to breathe by removing impurities and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Your home’s air will also be freer of common allergens.
Clyde S. Walton sells and installs the best air cleaner systems from brands you can trust: AprilAire, Lennox, and Trane.
In addition to selling and installing humidifiers and air cleaner systems, the technicians at Clyde S. Walton also maintain and repair air quality systems. So, if your existing home humidifier or air cleaner needs service or maintenance, we can handle that for you too.
For more than a century, the communities of Northern Pennsylvania have been able to count on Clyde S. Walton for exceptional service. Our satisfied customers live in Abington, Horsham, Lansdale, Norristown, Warminster, Warrington, West Norriton, and the surrounding towns in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
Don’t wait to improve the quality of the air in your home. Contact Clyde S. Walton today, and we’ll help keep your family healthy and comfortable.
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.
Here are a few things to bear in mind:
We will try to keep you informed as events unfold. There are many things we can’t control, but we will always prioritize our existing customers over new ones. We will go the extra mile to keep you safe and warm, and we will be there when you need us.

We know many of you are looking at energy cost increases and wondering when this will end, and we don’t blame you. Our goal is to keep you in the loop as much as possible, even though the situation remains very fluid.
Last week, our suppliers again raised prices by more than 65 cents per gallon over a few days. The reasons are complicated and seem to be affecting heating oil and diesel fuel much more than gasoline.
The driving factor is that heating oil in our area is in short supply now. In fact, if you look at prices on the commodities exchanges, they show heating oil at a dollar less than we can get it! That never happens. It’s called “basis blowout” and reflects a disconnect between the markets and actual supplies.
The good news is that the supply issues are happening because the markets expect heating oil prices to go lower by a fair amount over the next several months. Fuel suppliers are reluctant to purchase fuel now and get stuck with higher-priced product. The bad news is that it is causing prices to be artificially higher now, and no one really knows for sure what will happen with the Ukraine war. By the way, we are seeing the same kind of surges in natural gas and electric costs.
We decided to hold off most deliveries except for those customers who seemed to be running low. It didn’t help that we’ve had an unusually cold spring, and people are still using their heat. Beyond that, we want to urge people to get on our budget billing program, which allows us to spread your fuel payments over 11 months. If prices stay high next year, it will be much easier to manage your bills if you don’t have to pay for all of your deliveries in just five months of fall and winter.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call our office. We are here for you.

Dear Valued Customer,
Once again, we’re seeing energy prices surge across the board. We know how painful that can be for our customers. It’s painful for us, as well.
Gasoline has risen more than a dollar more per gallon vs. a year ago. Natural gas prices have skyrocketed more than 150%. Crude oil prices have climbed above $100 per barrel, a level we haven’t seen in seven years.
The cost of electricity has not been spared either. Higher natural gas prices result in price hikes for wholesale electricity because of heavy reliance on natural gas-fired power plants.
What’s more, wholesale propane prices have hit their highest weekly average levels since February 2014. Read more about the factors that are driving today’s energy market.
People sometimes misunderstand how negatively all this impacts us, as well. We don’t make more money when prices rise like this; we make less. Think of it this way: it’s like when the cost of coffee, milk, or oranges rises. It’s not the local grocery that is profiting. (That’s left to the Wall Street investors.) Our customers have a harder time paying their bills. They reduce expenditures. We need to tap into our lines of credit more. Our phones light up with questions. So the sooner energy prices drop, the happier we’ll be.
In the meantime, please talk to us about things we can offer to help you reduce your energy costs, or handle payments more easily. And if you are having trouble with your bills, please call us. We can generally work with you if you reach out before you fall behind.
We’ve been in business for many years and have deep roots in the community. We have secure access to supplies. We are doing everything possible to ensure we can deliver — even if other companies cannot — no matter the cost or difficulty we face.
We thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your loyalty. As we’ve done quite a few times in the past, we will get through these tough times by all working together.
You’ve already felt it. There’s a change in the air. It’s autumn in Pennsylvania, and that means the beginning of heating system. The weather is still on the milder side now, but before you know it winter will be here. You want to be sure that your heating system is ready and up to the challenge of keeping your family warm all winter long. Don’t worry, Clyde S. Walton will take care of it!
Now is the time to test your heating system and make sure it’s working as it should be. You don’t want to find out you’ve got a no heat situation in the middle of winter. If you’re oil burner isn’t working, here’s what to do.
The best way to avoid having a no-heat problem this winter is to get heating maintenance now. Walton offers service plans that provide comprehensive protection and will help you avoid unexpected repairs and keep your equipment running better for longer. So schedule a tune-up for your boiler, furnace, or heat pump as soon as possible. We also recommend signing up for a propane gas appliance safety check now as well.
Don’t delay in scheduling your tune-up. Now that it’s autumn our schedule is already filling up and we’ll get busier and busier the closer we get to winter.
Regular maintenance for your heating system is worth the investment. A heating system that doesn’t receive regular maintenance will lose efficiency and cost you more to run. By getting a tune-up now, you’ll enter winter knowing your equipment is running safely and efficiently. Plus, since most breakdowns can be avoided with regular maintenance, getting a tune-up now will allow one of Walton’s expert technicians to find and fix any minor issues before they become more serious and costly.
We recommend signing up for one of our service plans before winter arrives to help you have a stress-free heating season. Our service plans include an annual tune-up, repair discounts, and priority service. We have service plans for customers using heating oil, propane, natural gas, and heat pumps.
Here are five more ways you can have a simpler winter as a Clyde S. Walton customer:
