Murray-Heutz has been synonymous with value in propane for a long time. Our customers love the convenience and value we deliver every single day. Whether you use propane to fuel your home or your business, our service is second to none in Maine – and that’s a promise.
That promise extends to our propane pricing.
We strive to take care of our customers in all ways, and that includes our propane pricing.
It’s summed up in our Guaranteed Fair Pricing promise.
Our pricing is competitive, fair, and aboveboard. We don’t lure you in with a super-cheap price as an incentive, then pull a bait-and-switch and charge you more after an introductory period. You won’t be surprised by hidden fees.
When we talk about fair, competitive propane pricing, we’re not just talking about price per gallon. We’re talking about everything you get when you buy your propane from Murray-Heutz.
We are not the least expensive when it comes to our propane pricing, nor are we the most expensive. But we offer so much more than what you’ll get from propane companies with cheap pricing. Because more often than not, they are a bare-bones operation. All you’re going to get is your propane delivered, and you have to pay in full upon delivery.
Murray-Heutz is a full-service propane delivery company. You get a lot more than simply a propane delivery. You also get:
In addition to our competitive prices for propane, we offer options for you when it comes to how much you pay for propane, and how you pay for it. You get to choose which work best for your needs and your budget for even more peace of mind when it comes to propane pricing.
Advantage Plan. With the Advantage Plan, every Murray-Heutz customer who chooses Automatic Delivery will get a discount of 5 cents per gallon for every propane delivery plus the guarantee you’ll never have a propane run-out. You can save even more if you enroll in Auto Pay and have your payments automatically deducted from your checking account! You can choose either an additional 5-cent-per-gallon discount or a one-time account credit of $50! Enroll Today!
Pre-Buy with Price Cap. You get to purchase your propane before heating season begins, and the price per gallon you will pay is capped. While you’ll never pay more than that capped price, you may end up paying less if market prices fall!
Monthly Smart Pay Payment Plan. Do you notice how your propane usage, and thus your propane bills, are higher at certain times of the year? With Smart Pay, you can spread your propane costs out over up to 12 months of even, monthly payments. You can also add Price Cap to your Smart Pay plan!
Q. What affects the price of propane?
A. Many factors impact how much you pay for your propane. These include:
The time of year. Demand for propane is greater in the winter when it is used for home heating, so prices can be higher then as opposed to spring and summer.
Supply issues. Natural disasters such as hurricanes can impact fuel distribution centers, as Hurricane Harvey did in the Gulf Coast region in 2017. Hacking pipelines for ransom has also become a problem.
Geopolitical conflicts. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine along with the sanctions of Russia that followed, created ripple effects throughout global energy markets and propane was not spared.
Q. I’m having a hard time with my propane costs. What can I do?
A. Don’t let pride or fear keep you from asking for help. The first thing to do is to get in touch with us before you fall behind on your payments. We’ll do everything we can to help you manage your propane costs. We can also discuss long-term solutions like our Monthly Smart Payment Plan and our pricing programs such as Pre-Buy with Price Cap. You may also qualify for help from the Maine Department of Housing’s Energy Assistance Program.
Q. How do I know when to order a propane delivery?
A. With Murray-Huetz, you don’t have to worry about that if you choose Automatic Delivery! We use the latest software and a tried-and-true calculation that factor in your propane usage and weather conditions to accurately forecast when you will need more propane. That data allows us to schedule a delivery to your home before you run low.
Another benefit of enrolling in Automatic Delivery is that, thanks to our Advantage Plan, you get a discount of 5 cents per gallon! For even more savings, also enroll in AutoPay for an additional 5-cents-per-gallon discount.
Want even more precision when it comes to your propane delivery? Sign up for wireless propane tank monitoring! The monitor tracks your propane supply in real time and uses wireless and cellular technology to let us know exactly when you need a deliver, which we promptly schedule.
If you choose Will-Call for your propane delivery, you are responsible for checking your propane tank gauge levels frequently. We urge our customers to not let their tank gauge fall below 30% full before requesting a propane delivery. If you forget to check and need an emergency propane delivery, there will be added costs for that.
