Heating Help for Chair City Oil Customers
Many people dread the cold winter season due to heating costs. Chair City Oil works hard to bring its customers the best Bio-Heat product at the best prices. Some customers need added assistance. Chair City Oil offers many payment options to help with the cost of fuel. Our budget plans start in June but you can inquire at any time. Information on our budget plans is available on our website or by contacting the office during business hours.
If you find you’re in need of added assistance there are programs outside of Chair City Oil that may be able to help, if you qualify. There are a number of places you can turn to if you need help with paying your heating bills. Several different applications to heating bill assistance programs are provided by numerous federal and state government organizations, as well as some privately funded non-profit associations. Most are on a first come, first approved status…so applying early makes a difference. Heating assistance plans can take up to 5-6 weeks for approval, and are not emergency heating programs. Below are just two options. For more information links are provided below.
