April 2018 Bulletin

Spring? Where is it?

Well, we escaped the “Four-easter” we were supposed to get last week, and we sure are thankful for that. March has been a month of high winds, heavy snow, and power outages. Those men and women working the power lines and trees for most of March should be applauded. How do you come into a town with such devastating damage and say, “Yeah, we got this!”? The only good thing about back to back storms like we had, is that the crews never left. We saw crews from as far away as Canada here to help us get back to normal. I don’t think I’ll ever look at a tall pine again without thinking of the damage it will cause if it topples. The coastline saw tremendous damage to homes during the flood tides this year. It started in the January storm and there was enough time during February for people to fix things and clean up, and then March came and did it all over again. Fortunately, we did not have the sub-freezing temperatures like January, and the homes without power were spared the mess of freezing pipes….we’re trying to think of the positives. After this winter, I think the homeowners on the coastline will take a good, long-term look at current and future sea-levels, and make some decisions. We hope all of you came out of the storms relatively unscathed, and please call us if you need anything.


There are only 3 more regular budget billings left this season.

At this time, we’d like to remind you to pay attention to the balance that you may have remaining on your account and plan accordingly. The balance is the sum of your oil deliveries less any budget payments you have made thus far. While we have made adjustments for many of you, I’m sure you can appreciate the difficulty in pre-dicting who’s going to need deliveries 3 or 4 months out. Ideally, the goal is to come as close to -0- as possible as of June 30. Also, please keep in mind that any balance remaining after the June 2018 budget payment is due in full, by July 30, 2018 As always, thank you for your continued confidence in Rand-Handy as your full-service comfort provider, and feel free to call us with any questions.


These days, every edge helps when you want to sell a home. Potential buyers need to feel comfortable and secure with their purchase. Documents can turn promises into trust. Call us when your home is going on the market and these are some of the things we can do:

  • We can take away any doubts about the future performance of your heating system. Our service contracts are available to the buyer, upon becoming a customer.
  • We can come and measure the oil in your tank so you have the full value of the oil at the time of your closing.
  • We can work with you to schedule deliveries between contract and your day of closing.
  • If you or a friend are buying a home in our delivery area, we will do a no cost inspection of the heating and air conditioning system for you.
  • If you have moved to a new oilheated home in our service area, we can make the adjustment easier by coming to your home and showing you how the heating and cooling systems work.
  • We can always work directly with the Realtor to make things easier on you.

When you are planning to move, plan on us. We are here to help you.

Now is the time for a “Spring Tune-Up” of your home Central Air Conditioning System.

A thorough inspection, cleaning of air filters, and cleaning of the out-side condenser is important to keep your system running efficiently. Call us today at 781-834-8831 to set up a convenient appointment.

Think About It…..

Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.

From our Service Department:

We try hard to reach you and schedule the annual tune up of your heating system. However, we do not always have the best contact for you. Many of you have given us a cell phone number or a work number to reach you during the day. This helps us in contact-ing you to schedule a convenient time for you. If you have new contact information, please note it on your next payment and we will make the changes on your account. If email works best for you, you can reach us at oil@randhandy.com and include any updated in-formation on that also. Thanks again for your help and we look forward to speaking with you.
