Why Your Bills Are Going Up

Dear Valued Customer,

Once again, we’re seeing energy prices surge across the board. We know how painful that can be for our customers. It’s painful for us, as well.

What’s Going On?

Gasoline has risen more than a dollar more per gallon vs. a year ago. Natural gas prices have skyrocketed more than 150%. Crude oil prices have climbed above $80 per barrel, a level we haven’t seen in seven years.

The cost of electricity has not been spared either. Higher natural gas prices result in price hikes for wholesale electricity because of heavy reliance on natural gas-fired power plants.

What’s more, wholesale propane prices have hit their highest weekly average levels since February 2014. Read more about the factors that are driving today’s energy market.

What We’re Doing

People sometimes misunderstand how negatively all this impacts us, as well. We don’t make more money when prices rise like this; we make less. Think of it this way: it’s like when the cost of coffee, milk, or oranges rises. It’s not the local grocery that is profiting. (That’s left to the Wall Street investors.) Our customers have a harder time paying their bills. They reduce expenditures. We need to tap into our lines of credit more. Our phones light up with questions. So the sooner energy prices drop, the happier we’ll be.

In the meantime, please talk to us about things we can offer to help you reduce your energy costs, or handle payments more easily. And if you are having trouble with your bills, please call us. We can generally work with you if you reach out before you fall behind.

Trust Us to Come Through for You

We’ve been in business for many years and have deep roots in the community. We have secure access to supplies. We are doing everything possible to ensure we can deliver — even if other companies cannot — no matter the cost or difficulty we face.

We thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your loyalty. As we’ve done quite a few times in the past, we will get through these tough times by all working together.

propane water heaters

Get more comfort for less money!

Although they may not be the most visible pieces of home equipment, water heaters are one of the unsung heroes that keep us warm and comfortable.

They are often only noticed if something goes wrong.

If you’re looking to upgrade your water heater, propane is the best choice, because it provides more hot water faster than electric models. It also offers better energy efficiency so that you get an amazing end result that will cost less and save you money on your energy bills! Propane water heaters also take up less space, have more accurate temperature adjustment and offer more size and installation options.

You have two alternatives when it comes to propane water heaters—tank or tankless. No matter which kind you select, you can be confident in its quality and comfort.

Propane tankless water heaters

Propane tankless water heaters are the newest, most efficient way to provide hot water.

They will keep supplying you with hot water for as long as you need it, without the limit of a storage tank, so you never have to worry about running out.

And you’re only getting hot water when it’s needed. This can save up to 40% on your water-heating energy costs!

Propane tank water heaters

Tank water heaters store hot water for you to use throughout the day, meaning that you have access to hot water whenever it suits your needs.

Propane water heaters are advantageous over electric models, because they heat more water faster at 30% less cost. Again, more comfort for less money!
Propane water heaters cost on average 40% to 60% less to operate than electric water heaters.

With reliable propane delivery from Dale Gas & Oil, you can enjoy the efficiency and comfort of a propane tankless water heater. Become a customer today!
