Weather Reminder To Styer Customers

We hope everyone out there is getting into the holiday spirit! We are so excited about Thanksgiving and hope all of you are as well. Please not that our office will be closed on Thursday, November 25th so that our hard working drivers and office staff can spend the holiday with their families.

So far this Fall, we have had a number of nights in with lows in the low 30s and even high 20s. Your home will go through more propane when temps dip and even more fuel when temperatures reach extreme cold. Accordingly, it is important that will-call customers request fuel delivery when their tanks are at 35% (or anywhere below). Don’t wait until your tank is at risk of running out of propane!

On Winter’s Doorstep

This winter we also ask that all clients understand that our drivers cannot safely deliver to driveways that are not passable. If a driveway has a significant amount of uncleared snow and ice, specifically if it is on any sort of incline, please note that our drivers will not be able to make a delivery until conditions change. Accordingly, we ask that customers expecting deliveries please clear snow from driveways and tank covers prior to a driver’s arrival. We also would appreciate it if customers would please shovel a path to the tank or tank fill so that our drivers have an opportunity to easily find and fill your propane as they make their way to all customers during times of rough weather. For those customers with underground tanks, we kindly ask you to mark your tanks with a stick, a flag or some sort of marker that our drivers can easily recognize when they visit your property for a propane delivery.

We thank all of you for helping us to ensure save deliveries year after year and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Feeling Fall at Styer Propane

If you want to know that Fall has definitely arrived in our area, you could look at the trees changing colors across Chester County. You could visit your local coffee shop and notice all of the pumpkin spiced offering that have crowded their way onto the menu. Or, you could stand just outside the Styer Propane offices and listen to the phones ringing briskly all day long. Yes, once that first cold snap hits like it did a few weeks ago, our phones ring all the way to Easter.

Here at Styer Propane, we want you to know that we are here for all of your propane needs during the cold season and all year round. From installation of new lines and tanks to timely fuel delivery. we have you covered with service and payment options to fit your home’s needs and budget.

If you are pleased with the service you receive from our business, please do not hesitate to tell a friend or leave an online review.

Heating Maintenance is a Must

Saturday and Sunday marked the first weekend of Fall, and wasn’t a beauty? This week calls for highs in the 60s and overnight lows in the 40s which means that many around Chester County will be running their heating systems for the first time since early Spring. When it comes to propane heating systems, many homeowners simply assume that things should automatically function normally after a long dormant period–just at the flip of a switch. That is some pretty wishful thinking which is why we recommend that systems should be maintained annually, prior to the start of the heating season by a trained HVAC professional.

Your propane furnace relies on the proper functionality of its burner, heat exchanger and blower to ensure effective heating during the cold season. If you have radiator heat, then your boiler should be checked to ensure safe and proper functionality before the first frost. In our part of the Delaware Valley, the first frost generally shows up as early as the first week of October. That said, if your heating system has yet to receive its annual check up, now is the time to call. An efficient heating system will invariably save you money on fuel costs. What’s more a properly maintained system is less likely to break down, and we all know that repairs will nearly always cost you more out of pocket than the cost that comes with regularly scheduled annual maintenance.

PreBuy Available Until Oct. 15 or While Supplies Last

UPDATE – PreBuy is now CLOSED for the 2021-2022 Season.

PreBuy Season may have come a little late this year, but PreBuy is now available and the response has been through the roof with Styer customers eager to save money on their propane usage this Winter Season. As many of you know, the energy market has been up, down and up again since COVID came to our shores last year. As we always say, no one has a crystal ball on where things go next. For one, lockdowns and more people working from home lowered demand and therefore lowered prices in many segments of the energy market. However, a cold winter trumps everything. Combine that with a lot of warehouses and other logistics industry businesses adopting propane for everything from traditional heating to powering forklifts and vans, and we could certainly see prices remain high through winter.

Taking advantage of PreBuy is your choice. As always, we will continue to make every effort to pass along the best pricing (and unmatched service) to all of our customers.

Wishing you the best,

All of us at Styer Propane

Pre-Buy Offer Coming in August

Our Pre Buy Program is slightly delayed this year. If you’ve pumped gasoline in the past few months, you are well aware that the prices in the energy market have been creeping up steadily since things opened back up in Spring. We will be announcing the return of Pre Buy in the next week or two on this website, via social media and a notice will be emailed or mailed to our current customers. All of this is in an effort to pass along the best pricing to our customers throughout the Delaware Valley. As always, we greatly appreciate your patience!

4th of July Scheduling Notes from Styer Propane

We are enjoying this stretch of sizzling summer weather in the Delaware Valley and we hope you are as well. Hopefully, someone has saved you a beach chair under an umbrella somewhere in the sand or a nice spot by a pool at your favorite place to cool off. Summer is a little slow here as many of you know. Winter time is really our busiest time for certain. So that our employees can get some well earned time with family this weekend, we would like to pass along that Styer Propane will be closed both Friday, July 2nd and Monday, July 5th in observance of Independence Day. We ask that Customers please plan their propane needs accordingly.

Starting Summer at Styer

Here at Styer Propane, we could not be happier that summer is upon us and we are ecstatic that things are starting to get back to normal throughout the communities that we serve. This summer promises to be extra special given that we are well on our way to seeing one another again. It will be a thrill to enjoy picnics, sporting events and vacations without restriction or concern over the health of friends and family.

Right now, we are wrapping up our Budget offer for the season. May is the time to call regarding budget pricing. If you have yet to do so, we recommend calling us this week to determine if Budget is right for your home (and budget).

We know that a lot of folks are going to use the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend as an opportunity to get to the beach, the lake or, at the very least, the backyard. As we mentioned previously, we are all so long overdue in being able to do this without worry. As you gather and recreate this weekend, please also remember those who gave their lives in service to this great nation. The freedoms we enjoy continue to be the foundation of what makes this country great and they only are available to us due the sacrifices of so many brave young men and women who gave their lives so that we could be free.

Is a Budget Plan Right for You? Now is the Time to Enroll.

Our Budget plan runs for 12 months and starts in May each year. The intent of the plan is to enable customers to make regular payments to their account so that deliveries are more affordable during the high-usage months of the year.

The pandemic has had a different effect on household budgets for a lot of the customers we serve. At Styer Propane, we try to do everything we can to work with customers so that they can best understand and manage their energy costs throughout the year. To learn more about the Styer Propane Budget Plan, visit the Budget Plan page of this site and reach out to our office weekdays during regular business hours so we can best determine a budget strategy for your household.
