Bottini EZ Pay and Price Cap protection: Two heating season stress busters

billsShort days, cold weather, slushy streets, and black ice make winter and early spring stressful enough here in the Hudson Valley – why add to that stress will unpredictable heating fuel bills?

If you have been paying your heating bills month-to-month, you have probably experienced quite a billing rollercoaster over the last few heating seasons as temperatures have routinely swung by 20 degrees or more in a 24-hour period. That kind of workload can really drive up propane or heating oil use – and your monthly energy bills as a result.

But what if you could make the same basic heating payment month after month regardless of how much fuel you used?

That’s what you will experience if you become a Bottini EZ Pay Plan customer.

With EZ Pay, you will avoid paying for 80 percent of your year’s propane or heating oil use during a four- or five-month period. We’ll estimate your fuel use based on your past bills, then divide that total into 12 equal payments (we can make small adjustments – up or down – as needed). There are no finance charges for this service, and there is no cost to enroll!

Price Cap: Another way to cut heating bill stress

Another convenient, stress-busting way to tackle heating bills is to sign up for price cap price protection from Bottini.

A price cap puts a limit on how high your fuel price can rise, but not on how much it can drop. If demand for fuel drives up fuel prices – as it often does during heating season –you will only pay your contracted maximum for your fuel. Like all heating oil suppliers, we charge a fee for this service: the fee covers our costs to purchase insurance from our suppliers in case the market price drops (the fee only covers the cost of the insurance; we don’t profit from collecting it).
