Tenant Notice: Winter Heat

Dockrey Apartments takes this opportunity to notify tenants about winter heat.
We apologise for mentioning the "W" word.

BlueWave Energy Amherst 902 667-4333 or Truro 902 893-2931 have a discount fuel offer for Dockrey Apartments' tenants, discounted for huge volume, you pay, what we pay. There is no requirement for tenants to use any fuel provider, the tenant may be able to obtain another discount from another supplier.

BlueWave Energy Amherst 902 667-4333 or Truro 902 893-2931 and perhaps other fuel suppliers provide a budget plan service, where the anticipated cost of fuel is spread over more months than the time of use, making costs easier. But, all budget plans need to begin early. The earlier the start, the lower each payment will be.

Fuel use is foreseeable, and continuous, during winter. Running out of oil is preventable.
If the tenant runs out of oil during the winter, there are costs incurred in restarting the furnace, those costs are charged to the tenant.
Restarting the furnace is not a free service, nor is it the responsibility of Dockrey Apartments.
Fuel/electricity use, is directly related to thermostat temperature setting.
It is unwise to leave the thermostat turned up when the premises are vacant, turned down a few degrees saves money.
Forced air furnaces have air filters, these must be cleaned (plastic 'scourer' type) or replaced (paper screen type) regularly or airflow is reduced. Reduced air means longer burn times, more heat going up the chimney, and higher costs
Hot water baseboard furnaces have tiny fins in the baseboard radiators, these fins need to be vacuumed to keep out dust or pet hair. If these fins are blocked there is reduced air through the radiator. Reduced air means longer burn times, more heat going up the chimney, and higher costs.
Electric baseboards have tiny fins, these fins need to be vacuumed to keep out dust or pet hair. If these fins are blocked there is reduced air through the radiator, longer run time, more electricity use, and higher costs.

Each year, we get a number of tenants in their first self-heated home; this information is primarily intended for them.
Enjoy the summer.
