Pricing Plan FAQs

Heating Oil & Propane Pricing Plan FAQs

Q: What pricing plans are available?

A: We understand that every household has unique budgeting needs, which is why we offer three different heating fuel pricing plans for you to choose from.

    • Budget Plan
      Enjoy the convenience of predictable heating bills every month! Instead of anticipating sky-high bills during the coldest months of the year, you can pay the same amount every month – just like your car or cell phone bill. Our Budget Plan is available to heating oil and propane customers for an 11-month period.


    • Pre-Buy Plan
      Take care of your heating costs for the entire year with one simple payment. Purchase your heating oil or propane in advance and we will save your gallons for you and make deliveries over the year as needed. Pre-season fuel prices are typically 5-10¢ lower than peak season rates.


    • Price Cap Plan
      Lock in your rate for the heating season! We’ll set a cap on your heating oil price. You’ll never pay above this price, no matter how the market changes. If the market price drops below your cap price, you pay the lower amount. It’s a win-win!


Q: Are pricing plans available for both heating oil and propane?

A: All three pricing plans are available to our heating oil customers. Propane customers can sign up for the Budget Plan or the Pre-Buy Plan. The Price Cap Plan is not available to propane customers.

Q: If I choose the Budget Plan, how is my monthly payment calculated?

A: First, we will estimate your annual fuel usage and projected fuel rates. Then we will divide that total into 11 monthly installments, so you receive one predictable heating bill each month.

Q: Is there a fee for the Price Cap Plan?

A: Yes. The Price Cap Plan requires a small insurance fee to guarantee your capped price. This small fee is necessary to lock in the maximum price per gallon you will pay for your heating oil.

Q: How can I sign up for a pricing plan?

A: Signing up for the pricing plan of your choice is simple! All you have to do is contact Eshenaurs and we’ll take care of the rest. Contact us today to sign up for a Budget Plan, Pre-Buy Plan, or Price Cap Plan. Once fall rolls around, you’ll be happy that you did!
