Elevated fuel prices across the board are making heating costs challenging for many people. Even if the rest of the winter stays mild, a bill that’s higher—even when you aren’t using more propane than usual—stings. Truthfully, we wish we had more control over the cost of propane. It’s important to remember that we don’t profit when prices are higher. In fact, it’s the opposite. Think about when food prices increase. It’s not the local grocery store profiting off those higher prices. If anyone’s profiting, it’s the big corporations and Wall Street investors.
Still, we know paying those bigger heating bills are a worry for many folks. That’s why we encourage everyone to sign up for a monthly payment plan. Even when fuel costs are low, it’s a popular option, because it helps keep fuel bills level and manageable.
We’ll calculate your average fuel use based on your past statements and usage patterns. From there, we’ll spread your costs out evenly over several months, cutting winter bills nearly in half and making it easier for you to plan your expenses. As a result, our heating fuel payment plan is a smart way to manage winter propane costs and avoid unexpected high invoices, no matter how cold it gets or how much fuel you use!
Even if we have a particularly cold winter or prices continue to rise, we’ll help adjust your payments, so you don’t get hit with a large balance in the summer. Likewise, if it’s a mild winter, we can adjust and reduce your payments: The point is to help you save while avoiding big fluctuations.
If you are struggling with your propane bills, please let us know before you get too far behind. We will work with you to find a solution.
In addition, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services offers help to qualifying low-income households by providing assistance with heating costs.
Whether you sign up for a payment plan or prefer to pay as you go, you’ll get all the value from being a Rand Wade customer, like always-reliable propane deliveries, and neighborly customer service. We hope fuel prices will begin to moderate in the coming months, but no matter what happens with prices in the future, we will always work with you to help you keep costs manageable.
