SPRING SPECIAL!

Tidewater Oil Blog

Summer is almost here and now is a great time to have your heating system cleaned, tuned and evaluated.  Most people wait until the heating season is upon us to schedule a tune-up or address issues with their system.  That’s ok, but the best time to get work done is now when we are not busy and have plenty of open appointments to better meet your scheduling needs.  You will also have the peace of mind throughout the summer that your heating system is all set and ready to go when things turn cold this coming fall.

Call today, mention this blog and save 10%!  Tune-up must be completed by 6/30/17 to take adavantage of this special.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU THOUGHT ABOUT YOUR FUEL TANK?

Tidewater Oil Blog

Our lives are busy and often times we over look things that are so critical to the way we live our lives.  One of those areas we see people forget about on a regular basis is their fuel tanks.

Did you know that condensation forms inside of tanks, that coupled with sludge buildup can significantly decrease the life of your fuel tank?  This buildup of sludge and water can lead to problems with fuel quality or worse yet a tank that begins to leak due to corrosion.

Fortunately, there are companies who have figured out how to protect your tank, improve fuel quality and increase the life of your fuel tank.  Carter Chemicals of Westbrook Maine has developed and carries multiple fuel additives for any situation.  We wanted to support a Maine based manufacturing business so we tested the products.  The results have exceeded our expectations and we now offer their full line of products.  I want to highlight the products we utilize the most:

Arotec 275 –  Used to prevent #2 fuel from gelling, disperses water and keeps fuel flowing in subzero temperatures
K-1 Plus – Disperses water/sludge, prevents corrosion and provides stabilization for long-term storage
Arotec 300 – Breaks up sludge, emulsifies moisture and slows the rate of corrosion inside the fuel tank
Aronol – Raises cetane level in diesel fuel, improves fuel economy, lowers pour point to reduce gelling issues and increases fuel lubricity (We use this in all diesel vehicles year round!)

For more information or pricing please call us at 338-4739.

Did You Know We Service Monitor & Toyotomi Vented Heaters?

Tidewater Oil Blog

At Tidewater we have an experienced group of technicians ready to tackle all your Monitor/Toyotomi issues.  From simple maintance to advanced troubleshooting we have the expertise you have been looking for!

We can rebuild your unit, install a new unit, or complete routine maintenance to ensure you have heat available when you need it.  We are so confident in the performance of these units we heat our office with a Toyotomi Oil Miser 22!  Stop in and check it out if you would like.

For those of you with monitor heaters, we want to make you aware that Monitor has discontinued their product line of vented heaters.  Parts are still available, but are becoming harder to find which has driven up costs.  We will continue to service all models while part supplies last.  In the event we cannot complete the required repairs due to discontinued parts you may want to consider replacing the unit with a new Toyotomi.  Ask us for information on comparison models and cost.

Save Money And Avoid Unnecessary Service Calls When You Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up!

Tidewater Oil Blog
Getting your heating system tuned-up annually can help reduce your heating bills by 5% or more!  It also allows our technicians to inspect your system and alert you to any potential problems that could lead to down time when you need your heat on the most.

At Tidewater Oil we take great pride in going the extra mile when we tune-up your system.  We start by brushing and/or vacuuming out your heat exchanger when applicable.  We then replace your nozzle, pump strainer, and oil filter(s).  If you have a warm air furnace we replace your air filters as well.  While we have your burner opened up we will clean it and adjust your electrodes.
