As the calendar flips from November to December we’ve moved from the season of gratitude into the season of giving and gifting. If you are someone who is still childlike at heart, this time of the year is filled with many elements of wonder and surprise — from spontaneous holiday gatherings to pondering what’s inside the brightly wrapped package that you know will fill you with joy.
Unfortunately, being an adult can get in the way of the holiday whimsy, especially when it means dealing with things like paying for those pretty packages and making sure that the bills are paid so the home remains warm and cozy for the holiday gathering and throughout the winter.
Here at Quarles, we want the holiday season to be filled with brightness and warmth. This is not a time to worry about things like fluctuations in the heating bill. That’s why Quarles created its Budget Payment Plan. The Budget Payment Plan is the perfect way to spread your annual fuel costs over twelve months. That means no unexpected bill amounts that could take away from the magic of the season.
By spreading the average payment out over a year, you’ll be able to keep your fuel costs consistent so you’ll always know what to budget for your home’s heating costs. This is particularly advantageous during the prime heating season in Virginia that runs from October to March, when you never know what the weather will do.
How is the Monthly Plan Calculated?
Each Budget Payment Plan is created to be unique to the customer. When you sign up to participate in the plan, a Quarles customer service agent will start by looking at your average heating oil usage over the past year and the total cost of services. Next, an average of that bill will be divided out over the next twelve months. This means that customers don’t have to worry about what that month’s bill will look like. It will be the same every month.
Throughout the year, Quarles will remain in touch by issuing a monthly statement. The amount of the bill is based on the home’s estimated consumption for that month. Customers will also see the current balance as well as any credit on the account. Consumption of heating oil will be higher during the prime Virginia heating months of the fall, winter and early spring.
