Don’t Let Unexpected Equipment Repairs Take a Bite Out of Your Winter Budget

hvac service vermontResidents here know how tough a Vermont winter can be. Those frigid temps, ice, and snow makes your heating system work extra hard for months on end. If your heating system conks out on a freezing night, the last thing you want to worry about is the cost of repairs. And if you need to replace a major part, it can get expensive with costs that add up quickly.

Did you know that on average, a furnace or boiler repair can cost between $300 and $400—and repairs to a water heater can run close to $600? That’s why it’s important to have a plan—a heating system service plan, that is!

[h3] Junction Fuels Has Got You Covered

Junction Fuels have created a service plan that’s designed to help you save money—even if you don’t need any immediate repair services! In fact, with our service plan, the goal is to prevent breakdowns entirely. Our plan includes an annual equipment cleaning and thorough boiler tune-up. Our expert technicians perform a multipoint check so they can identify worn parts and replace them before they cause bigger problems.

A tune-up not only protects your boiler or furnace, but it also protects your warranty, too. Most heating equipment warranties require annual service. So, without routine maintenance, you might find yourself shelling out money for repairs because your warranty is voided.

Regular maintenance also keeps your heating equipment running more efficiently, which helps lower your heating costs. And when temperatures plummet, it will be able to handle the extra work and keep your home and family comfortable, no matter what winter brings.

Finally, regular maintenance protects your investment by extending the lifespan of your heating system. A new heating system is a big expense, one you don’t want to make sooner than you must.

Our Available Plans

We offer two levels of service plans:

Value Plan ($289.99/yr)
Oil Equipment Only

Don’t Be Fuel-ish Plan ($239.99/yr)
Oil and Propane Equipment

Enjoy a Worry-Free Winter

Even with the best maintenance, sometimes your equipment can fail. But with a heating system service plan from Junction Fuels, you can rest easy knowing you’ll save on repairs and labor. Plus, every customer enrolled in our service plan also gets priority service. That means you don’t go to the back of the line when you call—even during the worst cold snaps!

If that sounds like a good plan for avoiding expensive repairs this winter, contact us for more information and to sign up today!

*All plans exclude Power Venters
*White Rodgers Zone Valves are excluded on all plans

Don’t Wait Until Fuel Prices Go Any Higher!

fuel delivery vermontIf you’re currently a “Will-Call” customer for your home heating fuel—meaning you call in every time you need a delivery—we urge you to fill your tank and weigh the prospect of enrolling in our FREE Automatic Delivery program this season.

Why’s this? Aside from the myriad conveniences offered by Automatic Delivery, U.S. home heating bills are expected to surge across the board this thanks to a volatile market which will almost certainly last well through the winter season, which is fast approaching. So, it’s a wise move to abandon “Will-Call”, replenish your tank and the lowest possible price, and investigate Automatic Delivery before prices climb further.

Enjoy Warmth and Comfort with a New Fireplace or Hearth!

propane fireplace options vermontWhile the temperatures may still be quite warm outside here in Vermont, we all know that before too long, we’ll be coming home after a day out in the bitter cold—wanting to relax by a warm, comfortable fire.

But when you have a wood-burning fireplace or hearth, you have some work to do before that can happen. For starters, you must buy or chop firewood, bring it in the house, build the fire, and then wait for it to warm up the room. Then, the work continues when you’re done, because the fireplace needs to be cleaned—and the soot and ashes make that quite a dirty job.

Make this year the last year you worry about all that! Skip all the hassle and go straight to the relaxing-by-the-fire part with a propane fireplace or hearth from Junction Fuels! We’ll make sure you have warmth, comfort, and ambience with just the flip of a switch or the press of a button.

water heater options vermontYou probably already get your favorite movies and TV shows on-demand—why not get your hot water that way, too?

A tankless propane water heater heats only the water you need—when you need it—for your shower, sink, dishwasher, or washing machine. By working this way, a tankless water heater delivers several benefits that a conventional water heater (one with a storage tank) simply can’t match, including:

Of course, tankless systems aren’t for everybody—which is why we also offer high-efficiency propane storage-type water heater options, too. To learn what kind of water heater is best for you, give us a call. We’ll be happy to walk you through the possibilities that perfectly fit your taste—and your budget.

Did you know that the average conventional water heater has a lifespan of about 10 to 12 years? Once it gets past that point, efficiency rates can drop dramatically—and the chances of a tank failure increase! So, if your water heater is into its second decade, it’s time to start considering replacement options.

But what do you do if it doesn’t?

Well, the one thing you shouldn’t do is panic: heating experts at Junction Fuels are here for you with a 24/7 emergency heating service in Eastern Vermont. But before you contact us for a heating repair, it’s a good idea to troubleshoot your problem and potentially save yourself the cost, time, and hassles of a house call.

Heating System Troubleshooting Checklist

If you have no heat, please try these four things to try before you call for service:

  1. Check to see if you have enough propane or heating oil in your tank (you should have at least an eighth of a tank; if you want to avoid the risk of runouts altogether, sign up for FREE automatic delivery).
  2. Make sure all emergency valves or switches are in their “on” or “start” positions.
  3. Check the circuit breaker that controls your heating system; look for a tripped breaker and replace or reset if you need to.
  4. Confirm that your thermostat is set for “heat” and that it is set at least five degrees above the current room temperature. Note for customers with warm air systems (a system with a furnace and vents): If you adjust the thermostat and the fan doesn’t start, it could indicate that your burner is not igniting. Press the reset button on the burner only once; if it does not reset, contact us for service.

If you take all four of the above steps and your heat still doesn’t work, contact us and we will send a qualified technician to figure out the problem and fix it as quickly as possible.
