Fall 2020

Letter from the President

Dear Valued Customer,

We and other Pennsylvania residents and business owners statewide have learned to navigate the COVID-19 climate, making adjustments each day to help safeguard the health of our families, employees, and of course our valued customers. We want to thank you for continuing to trust Eshenaurs with your home comfort and safety, even amidst difficult times. We take this responsibility very seriously and will continue to employ safety measures as long as it is necessary.

Fall is upon us once more, but the season looks a little different than normal. One major change is that many local children are learning from home and adults are working remotely. If you are enrolled in our convenient automatic fuel delivery program, please be sure to let us know if your family is learning or working remotely so we can update your annual fuel usage, which might be higher than past years. If you are not yet on automatic delivery, please let us know if you’d like to enroll in this service and take one to-do off your mind this season.

If you’re interested in increasing your peace of mind while spending more time at home, we want to remind you that we provide installations and service for emergency generators. During a recent storm in Pennsylvania, hundreds of homes were left without power for several days. Though power failure is always inconvenient, residents who rely on their power to work and learn remotely had to scramble to accommodate their jobs and schooling.

And finally, please remember that we provide high-efficiency water heater upgrades. If your teenagers or college students are spending more time at home these days, chances are you’ll want plenty of warm water on hand for additional showers! As always, please let us know if we can help you in any way.

5 Fail-Safe Ways to Prep for Winter

Keep this checklist handy for your fall to-do list and winter preparations!


Sign up for an Efficiency Maintenance Plan

We provide comprehensive heating maintenance plans to aid in predicting the costs of your home comfort needs. Enroll in your plan of choice whether you use heating oil, propane, or natural gas to heat your home! Our plans include benefits such as annual tune-ups, discounts on parts and labor, and priority service to keep your system up and running.


Order Fuel or Sign up for Automatic Delivery

Are you signed up for automatic fuel delivery yet? Both oil and propane users can take advantage of this hands-off approach to fuel delivery! Let us know you’d like to sign up for automatic fuel delivery, and we’ll take care of the rest. Want to manage your own fuel deliveries? No problem! Don’t forget to check your fuel tank levels and order before the gauge gets too low. We recommend oil customers order at 1/4 capacity and propane customers order at 1/3 capacity.


Schedule Your Heating System Tune-Up

Heating system tune-ups provide your furnace or boiler with:

  1. Extended equipment lifespan
  2. Efficient & affordable fuel usage
  3. Reduced risk of breakdowns
  4. Total comfort for the whole family

Contact us to schedule yours today and take the uncertainty out of winter heating!


Upgrade to High-Efficiency Equipment

If you want total peace of mind this cold season, replacing your home heating system is the best bet. Plus, our high-efficiency equipment will help you save up to 30% on heating and service. View the next page of this newsletter to see how you could score maximum rebate savings on your upgrade.


Clear a Path to Your Tank or Fill Pipe

When the snow starts to fall, please remember to shovel a path to your propane tank or oil fill pipe. This will allow our delivery drivers to make safe, efficient, on-time deliveries of your fuel orders.
