Heating Oil Pricing Programs

Save money and count on predictable Maine heating oil prices with payment plans and pricing plans from Murray-Heutz

Worried about home heating oil prices during our long, cold Maine winters? You’re not alone.

Heating oil prices in Maine are as unpredictable as the weather. Or as Forrest Gump might say, Like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.

That’s why we have designed a variety of programs to help you manage your bills and save money. These home heating payment options will take some of the stress and unpredictability out of keeping your home warm as you battle the weather.

You can learn about the pros and cons of each program in the table below. Whichever program you choose, rest easy knowing we will meet our promise of Service, Quality and Value—Guaranteed—no matter what winter brings us.

Call our office if you would like to talk to a representative about your options or click here to sign up for any of these programs.

Note: Discounts may be available in certain cases (cash, seniors, prompt pay, etc.). Contact us for more details.

Purchase your fuel before the winter season starts. Your fuel price is capped, but it is not locked in.

PROS:
Traditionally, this is the best way to save on fuel. Your fuel price can’t go above the cap price, but it can drop if the market price falls. And because fuel prices tend to fluctuate, it protects you both ways.

CONS:
Our suppliers charge a fee for the two-way protection.

BEST FOR:
Customers who like to save, prefer to keep things simple and who have the money to pay up front.

Spread your annual fuel bill over 11 months.

PROS:
This plan will cut your winter fuel payments in half, and it makes your fuel bill much more predictable. This is especially useful during the holidays. You don’t pay for more fuel than you actually receive. There is no finance charge if monthly payments are made on time. You may also spread out your service plan cost under this program.

CONS:
You pay for some fuel before the first delivery, but by the end of cycle we are waiting for payment on fuel that we’ve already delivered, so everything balances out.

BEST FOR:
Customers who prefer predictability and would like to avoid big winter bills.

Spread out your annual fuel bill over 11 months. Your oil price is capped, but it is not locked in.

PROS:

CONS:
Our suppliers charge a fee for the two-way protection.

BEST FOR:
Customers who prefer to avoid big winter bills because of cold weather and price volatility.

Pay your fuel bills automatically via your bank (ACH) or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover).

PROS:
Less hassle, avoiding missed payments (that can put deliveries on credit hold), earn points on cards, can be used along with the monthly payment plan or for payment after deliveries have been made.

CONS:
If your credit card expires, you will have to tell us.

BEST FOR:
Customers who do not like writing checks and want to avoid any problems if a statement is misplaced.

Get your statement by email rather than by regular mail.

PROS:
Less paper clutter for you to have to stay on top of; and it can be easier to organize and keep track of payments via your in-box.

CONS:
Some customers prefer paper statements.

BEST FOR:
Customers who prefer to handle more things electronically.
