Whenever we talk with customers about oil prices, it always seems to be a good news/bad news conversation. This season, the good news is that for the first time in decades, our country is actually producing more crude oil than we’re exporting. This increase in our domestic supply could drive down prices this winter and provide real relief in years to come. Now the bad news: Unpredictable factors, like the current challenges in Syria, a hurricane or extremely cold weather, could send prices flying upward.
This uncertainty is very frustrating for you as a homeowner, and it’s frustrating for us as a company as well. We would like nothing more than for prices to remain stable and predictable all winter long.
While we can’t control what happens in the world energy markets, we can do a lot to help you be fully prepared for winter. Our technicians have been busy getting heating systems in shape with preventivemaintenance tune-ups, and our equipment experts are installing new systems for customers who want to upgrade for better efficiency and greater comfort.
We also continue to accept enrollment in our oil price cap program, which reduces the worry of rising prices.
To take more worry out of winter, please consider one of our service plans, which include a tune-up plus great coverage for repairs. Please go to www.WaltonInc.com to explore your service plan options and to learn more about all that we can do for you.
