Be Prepared for Winter Fuel Deliveries
Important Seasonal Reminders
At Lansing Ice & Fuel, we’re committed to delivering for our customers in all kinds of weather. Whether you’re one of our propane delivery customers or one of our heating oil delivery customers, you can count on us. All of our drivers and technicians are trained and certified. We offer automatic delivery to help reduce the risk of a fuel run-out. Our prices are fair. And our employees are dedicated to service and safety.
In the interest of safety, there are a few things you can do to help us safely and efficiently deliver fuel to your mid-Michigan home this winter.
First and foremost, avoid having a run-out by keeping a close eye on your fuel levels. Your usage can increase dramatically during the winter months. And you don’t want to get caught without enough fuel to keep you home warm. A no heat emergency can put your family and home at risk. Better yet, take the pressure of yourself to be vigilant about monitoring your fuel levels and ordering at the right time by signing up for our automatic delivery service. It’s available to both our heating oil and propane customers.
Your Winter Delivery Checklist
Follow these steps to protect yourself, your family, and the Lansing Ice & Fuel delivery team this winter:
- Remove any snow or ice that may have accumulated along your walkways and driveways, and make sure our delivery crew can safely access your property.
- If you’re one of our heating oil customers, make sure that your fill pipe is clear and accessible.
- If you’re one of our propane customers…
- Keep your propane tank visible by attaching a brightly-colored flag to the top of it. This will greatly help our delivery drivers to position their trucks.
- Make sure there is a safe and clear path to your propane tank. And keep the tank itself clear of snow. Take care to use a broom instead of a shovel when clearing snow from the tank. A shovel could puncture your tank and cause a leak.
- Regularly check your vents and flues for obstructions. Any obstruction could lead to a build-up of carbon monoxide in your home. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious medical emergency that can be fatal.
- Test your carbon monoxide detectors monthly and replacing the batteries in them every six months. Check the manufacturer’s guidelines to see how often to replace the whole unit (usually it’s every 5 to 7 years).
- Make sure everyone in your household knows how to identify and what to do in the event of a gas leak.
