Automatic Delivery — The Ins & Outs
January 25th, 2017 by Tevis Propane
We are often asked, why should I be signed up for automatic delivery? It’s not because it’s better for us. It’s because it’s better for YOU!
You’ll Never Run out of Propane
No running out of hot water halfway through a shower. No freezing in a sweater while you wait for a delivery. With automatic delivery, we keep an eye on your usage so you don’t have to. And when you get low, we’ll automatically schedule a delivery to your home.
You Won’t Have to Call Us
Has this happened to you? You’re short on propane, so you remind yourself to call for a delivery. But you get caught up at work and forget. Before you know it, you’re out! With automatic delivery, you never have to remind yourself to schedule a delivery. It’s all taken care of.
There’s No Guesswork
To determine your usage, we don’t take a wild guess. We use a formula to calculate heating degree days – the demand for energy to heat your home daily, determined by the average of the day’s high and low temperatures. That means no guessing on your part, and a promise from us that you won’t run out of propane.
Here at Tevis Propane we have three tools we use in order to ensure you will not run out of propane.
- Degree day – A degree day is a numerical value of how warm or cool the weather is overall. The colder the day the higher the value is.
- K-Factor – When you get a delivery, our system records the actual degree day in which your delivery was made. Then at your next delivery our system records the degree day again, but this time it’s also looking back to the previous delivery to see how many degree days have passed between the two deliveries. Our system then divides the number of degree days passed in the time frame by the gallons delivered. This is called a K-Factor.
- Echo – When your propane delivery schedule is unpredictable due to your sporadic consumption, there is a solution. Our tank monitor system ensures you never run out of product before you next propane delivery. No two customers propane consumption is the same. Using the ECHO wireless monitoring system allows us to serve you on an individual basis.
So if you aren’t signed up for automatic delivery, now is the time. Don’t get stuck in the cold, Tevis Propane is your home for worry free delivery!
