Information on Help Making Heating Costs Manageable

fuel bill help north carolina 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.

How Does Our Monthly Payment Plan Work?

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.

In addition, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services offers help to qualifying low-income households by providing assistance with heating costs.

Rand Wade is the #1 Local Choice for Commercial Fueling Services

diesel fuel delivery north carolina Unless you operate a fleet of freight or delivery trucks, buses, or farm or construction vehicles, you may not be all too familiar with diesel fuel or how it differs from regular unleaded gasoline. So, what exactly is diesel fuel? Like gasoline, diesel is made from refined crude oil, but it is less flammable and less volatile than gas and delivers a lot more power.

Diesel engines run a little differently than the combustion engine in the typical passenger car ort light-duty truck. So, you can’t take advantage of that power unless you have a diesel engine. But it’s that efficiency and power that are the key advantages of diesel over gas when it comes to heavy duty commercial vehicles. In addition, diesel engines tend to last longer and require less maintenance—even as they handle bigger loads.

From agriculture to construction, trucking to manufacturing and beyond, businesses large and small count on Rand Wade for the diesel delivery service they need to get the job done.

On-Road Diesel Fueling

If you operate a fleet of service vehicles that use diesel fuel, our on-site fueling and bulk delivery service saves you time and money, compared to the cost of dispatching your fleet to an off-site gas station for fill-ups. We deliver on-road diesel fuel throughout the year to construction companies, trucking companies and many other businesses with a fleet of vehicles.

Off-Road Diesel Fueling

Do you operate a construction company or other business that has diesel-powered equipment or a farm running tractors or other farm equipment?

With the ultra-low sulfur dyed diesel that we deliver for off-road vehicles and equipment, there’s no federal excise tax—and you may be eligible for state excise tax refunds.

Solutions for Small Businesses, Municipalities, and More

Our commercial fueling services are designed to work for all kinds of clients. School districts and municipalities also need diesel fuels and gasoline for school buses, snowplows, fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances.

Rand Wade’s Handy Guide Can Help You Decide!

propane tanks north carolina You’ve probably used a portable propane cylinder to fire up your grill once or twice before. It’s easy to know what size you need—after all, the manufacturers’ instructions that came with your grill probably suggested the right size. But if you’re a new homeowner who’s never run a home with propane—or thinking of making the switch to propane—knowing what size propane tank you need for your home isn’t so obvious.

To know what size tank you need, you need to know how you will use your propane. Is it just for cooking, heating water, heating your home, or more? There are a lot of variables to consider, but the pros at Rand Wade are here to help you take the guesswork out of calculating the best size tank for your needs.

The Different Sizes of Home Propane Tanks

The first thing to know is that, unlike portable tanks, which usually give their capacity in pounds, residential propane tank size is usually given as their water capacity volume in gallons. Since propane is stored in a liquid state under pressure, it needs room to expand into a vapor. That’s why propane tanks are “filled” to 80% of its water capacity.

For example, a 120-gallon tank will hold approximately 100 gallons of propane when completely full.

Here’s a rundown of the most common tank sizes and their applicable uses:

  • 40- to 100-pound cylinders: If you plan to use propane for a gas grill, patio heater, outdoor cookstove or for an RV, a refillable portable cylinder tank is what you want. 
  • 120-gallon propane tank: This size tank is perfect if you only use propane just for water heating or space heating, or to fuel a range or clothes dryer.
  • 150-gallon propane tank: If you have one or two low-Btu appliances, such as a water heater, cooking range, space heaters, wall heaters or a clothes dryer, this size tank should provide ample propane.
  • 250-gallon propane tank: For three or more propane appliances like ranges, water heaters or fireplaces you may need to go up to this size. This size can also power home heating for residences between 800-1,200sq.ft.
  • 500-gallon propane tank: With this sized tank, a medium-to-large sized home will have enough propane to centrally heat the residence, as well as fuel multiple appliances including fireplaces, ranges and water heaters.
  • 800- to 1,000-gallon propane tanks: This capacity will fuel a large home (typically 3,000sq.ft. or more) or a small commercial business heated with propane that also utilized several propane appliances. This may also be ideal if you’re operating high-Btu propane appliances with regularity like pool and spa heaters.

Once we’ve helped you determine the best size tank for your needs, our pros can help determine the best location for your tank and make sure it’s installed safely. We’ve been providing propane tank installation for all kinds of homes and businesses for more than 45 years here in North Carolina! Whether you’re new to propane or just need to replace your tank, we’re here to answer all your questions.

Five Facts About Propane You Should Know

propane supplier north carolina If you grew up in a home heated with heating oil or electric heat, the idea of heating a home with propane might seem odd. It’s part of the reason why most people think propane is just for grills and camping. But as electric rates go higher and the cost of oil remains unpredictable, many homeowners in the Greene County area are looking for a domestic fuel source with prices that are a bit further under control

Others are wondering if electric heat is actually the cleaner, greener fuel it’s made out to be. It’s at this point that most people are discovering all the benefits propane has to offer!

But what exactly is propane? Propane is a byproduct of natural gas that is one of the cleanest, most versatile, and most efficient fuels around. It provides steady, reliable heat at an affordable price. Propane also offers exceptional performance and efficiency in a wide range of home appliances at a much lower cost than electricity. Because it is compressed and stored in a liquid state, it is sometimes referred to as Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG.

Here are five ways propane could be a smart choice for fueling your home—and they might surprise you:

1. Propane is Not Imported

Propane is a domestically sourced fuel. In fact, the U.S. produces more than enough propane to meet current demand and became a net exporter of propane in 2011. That increases our energy independence and reduces our reliance on foreign oil imports.

2. Propane Is Very Energy Efficient

Propane generates more Btus than an equivalent amount of electricity, and it delivers more than twice the Btus of natural gas. What does that mean for you? It means you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat or energy.

Also, propane appliances are very efficient, so they waste very little fuel in the combustion process. On the other hand, about two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted, which is tough news for your wallet.

3. Propane is Very Versatile

Because propane is so efficient, it’s a smarter choice than electricity for a wide variety of appliances, in addition to heating your home.

For example, propane water heaters generate much more hot water at a cheaper cost per gallon. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes that heat water with propane rather than electricity can see average annual savings of $174.

The same technology that makes propane ideal for water heaters makes it a smarter choice than electricity to power all kinds of appliances that use hot water or heat:

  • Clothes washers and dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Outdoor lighting
  • Patio heaters
  • Pool and spa-tub heaters
  • Outdoor grills

4. Propane Is a Safe Fuel Choice

While it’s a highly flammable gas under certain conditions, leaks are rare, and propane is a safe and clean-burning way to heat your home and water and run many of your appliances. Propane is designed with a distinct rotten-egg smell to help you quickly notice leaking gas.

5. Propane Is Reliable

If you run your home with propane and the electricity goes out, you have options. Your home will stay warm and comfortable thanks to your supply of propane. How so? It’s stored right on your property in a tank that’s kept full with prompt propane delivery from Rand Wade. And with a propane-fueled backup generator, your lights and everything else will be running until the utility companies can make repairs. How’s that for added peace of mind?

Propane Can Power Your Residence—No Matter Where You’re Located!

off grid energy north carolinaIf you were to mention off-grid living, most people think of “roughing it outdoors.” But today, an off-grid lifestyle can include every convenience of modern living, thanks to the versatility and efficiency of propane gas.

If you’ve relied on a whole-house generator to get through extended outages, you’re probably not too surprised by this fact. Propane is clean-burning and abundant—90% of the United States’ supply of propane is domestically generated—making it a cost-effective home energy solution that can help lower energy bills whether you’re living on- or off-grid.

Why Choose Propane Over Natural Gas or Electric?

Rural North Carolina is beautiful and building in a remote location can be desirable for all kinds of reasons. However, connecting to electric and natural gas can cost thousands of dollars. Propane can be safely stored on your property, right in a tank. Combined with other alternative and renewable energy sources like solar, propane can transform off-grid living from extreme to extremely comfortable. Here’s how:

Propane is More Energy Efficient

Propane generates more Btus than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat or energy. Also, propane appliances are very efficient, so they waste very little fuel in the combustion process.

Propane is Extremely Versatile

In addition to heating, propane is extremely efficient for powering a wide variety of gas appliances. When it comes to cooking, most chefs prefer the control that comes with a gas range. And propane water heaters generate much more hot water at a cheaper cost per gallon.

In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes that heat water with propane rather than electricity can see average annual savings of $174.

The same technology that makes propane ideal for water heaters makes it a smarter choice than electricity to power all kinds of appliances that use hot water or heat:

  • Clothes washers and dryers
  • dishwashers
  • outdoor lighting
  • patio heaters
  • pool and spa-tub heaters
  • outdoor grills

Propane is Incredibly Reliable

For off-grid living, a propane-powered whole house generator provides the reliability and security other people get from the grid. A generator will kick on seamlessly when your solar or wind power is depleted—no glitchy flickering, no brownouts. And, for those who are connected to the main grid but experience frequent outages due to storms, a whole-house generator can make the wait for utility-line repairs less of a hassle.

Another factor that makes propane so reliable, on-grid or off, is that you store your supply right on your property.

Rand Wade offers propane storage tanks of all sizes, including commercial-capacity tanks. We can help evaluate your needs—based on the size of your home, and how many appliances you want to run—and help you choose the right size tank. From permits to lighting your pilots after your first fill-up, we’ll make tank installation easy. We also offer automatic delivery service to help ensure you always have enough propane!

Propane is a Cleaner, Greener Energy Source

When it comes to environmental impact, propane gas is a good choice. It burns cleanly and produces minimal emissions. Propane also doesn’t harm soil or groundwater—an important factor in determining whether a fuel is truly “green.” Propane is also an American energy source, most of which comes from the processing of natural gas.

Maybe you’re building your dream home or a vacation hideaway well off the beaten path.

Consider Your Options: You Can Choose a Tank or Tankless Model

water heater service north carolinaIf your traditional tank-style water heater is inching closer to the decade mark of usage, you should probably begin thinking about its replacement. Signs that it’s time to update your water heater may include higher energy bills and water that just isn’t getting quite as hot.

Truth be told, your water heater works incredibly hard for you. Bathing and showering, washing dishes, laundry, cleaning, and other tasks add up to between 60 and 65 gallons of hot water a day for the typical American family. That nonstop workload takes a toll! It’s why the life expectancy for a conventional water heater with a tank is between eight and 10 years.

So, if you think it’s time to start shopping for a new water heater, you should consider a tankless water heater.

What’s a Tankless Water Heater?

Imagine having virtually unlimited hot water, while seeing lower fuel bills. It’s possible, with a high-efficiency tankless water heater. Also known as on-demand water heaters, tankless propane water heaters instantly heat water when you need it—so “on demand”—rather than keeping a large tank hot all the time.

Rand Wade offers a full selection of tankless water heaters from an industry renown brand, Rinnai, which include whole-house models to smaller versions that can be installed where they are needed to generate hot water for a home addition or for a spa tub, for example.

What are the Benefits of Choosing a Tankless Model?

  1. Unlimited hot water: Traditional tank heaters can run out of hot water if you use a lot all at once. Tankless water heaters use an electric pilot and a hot propane flame to heat water instantly on demand. There’s no tank, so it can’t hit empty.
  2. Savings: Tankless water heaters save energy by instantly heating water when you need it, rather than keeping a large tank hot all the time. All that efficiency means you’ll also save money by lowering your energy costs by as much as 40%.
  3. Flexibility: With no storage tank, a tankless water heater is small—even whole-house sizes take considerably less room than a 55-gallon tank. Most are about the size of a suitcase. It can also be wall-mounted, which means a tankless water heater can be placed just about anywhere in the house, including closets and crawl spaces.
  4. Longer equipment life: The primary culprit in the limited lifespan of a conventional water heater is corrosion from water stored in its tank. Because it doesn’t store water, a tankless water heater will last 18 to 20 years~

Are There Any Downsides of Going Tankless?

Although they save you money in the long run, tankless water heaters are typically more expensive to buy and install upfront, even if they’ll recoup that in savings in the long un. In addition, they require a little maintenance, particularly if you have hard water. Deposits and minerals can reduce performance and efficiency if you don’t flush the tank at least once a year and clean the filters.

Sticking with a Tank Style Water Heater

A traditional tank-style water heater is inexpensive to replace but costs a lot more to operate. And it can’t really deliver enough hot water for more than two or three showers in a row, assuming no one is washing dishes or using hot water for anything else.

Additionally, if your home has a basement, space may not be an issue. But if you don’t have a basement, that big tank uses a lot of valuable real estate in your home. Imagine what you could do with that closet space if you could eliminate your water heater tank.

Whether you decide to stick with a traditional tank-style water heater or update with a highly efficient tankless model, don’t wait for your water heater to fail to replace it! Like other essential equipment in your home, such as your refrigerator, you don’t want to go long without it. A lukewarm shower is no way to start your day. Enjoy energy efficiency and all the hot water you need with a new water heater!

If you want to learn more about the benefits of tankless water heaters, talk to the pros at Rand Wade Oil. We can help you choose the best option for your needs—and help you take advantage of valuable rebates from Rinnai. Contact us for details today.

What’s with the Recent Spike Fuel Prices?

heating oil costs north carolinaOver the past few weeks, we’ve heard from several folks with concerns about the surge in fuel prices. To put things into perspective, prices were already up more than a dollar this past winter season from the previous year because of issues related to the pandemic. Now, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and subsequent sanctions have shocked the energy markets. Crude oil rocketed to more than $120 per barrel at one point in early March.

Will we run out of fuel?

Everyone is astounded by how much prices have risen, and how fast. To give you a sense of this of how this affects both of us, on March 2, we received notice from our suppliers that their prices were going up 20 cents the next day. Then, on March 3, they went up again—three more times—a total of 60 cents in just 24 hours.

We’ve also heard from customers concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel. We want you to rest assured that Rand Wade Oil will never let you run out. We’ve been in business for over fifty years and have the experience and understanding of the fuel markets to plan in terms of supply. What’s more is that we have excellent, longstanding relationships with our suppliers and financial partners.

Fuel payment struggles

While fuel markets are always subject to fluctuation and can be extremely volatile at their worst, at this stage it’s hard to know where exactly things will go over the coming months. The main thing we can tell you is that we hate this as much as you do. Some people believe that when prices rise, we make more money. The opposite is true. People cut back on usage. They have trouble paying their bills and our receivables skyrocket. Yet our suppliers still expect us to pay in just 10 days. It becomes a bit of a mess for everyone.

In fact, we are already getting calls from customers who are with other companies in the area who can’t say the same, and who are unable to get deliveries for nearly 20 days out. You don’t have to worry about that with us!

If you’re having trouble paying your bill, talk to us. Many of you have been with us for a long time, and we will always try to work to give you more time. Also, now is a good time to ask us about our available payment plans. They’re designed to help you keep bills manageable, and enrollment for next year will be opening soon!
