"I had to have a new boiler put in my home. From the start, Marcy and Weymen were wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about them. Including Kim (I think that's her name) who directs your calls when you call in. You are all an asset to Stafford. I cannot thank all of you enough for making such a big expensive job a little less painless!! In a day and age when good Customer Service is almost impossible to find, I am SO happy to be Customers of Stafford!"

Protect Your Pipes from the Cold Weather


January 18, 2022

As a reliable full-service comfort company we’ve seen it all, and so we know what can happen to a home’s plumbing system when the temperatures drop drastically. If you don’t tend to your pipes during the winter, you could be looking at costly water damage and plumbing repairs.

 

Most pipes are in basements, crawl spaces and other unheated areas – here’s what you can do to help protect them from the cold weather!

·         Repair broken and cracked windows, doors and walls to keep air contained

·         Install storm windows on basement windows for better protection

·         Make sure exterior doors and windows close tightly

·         Upgrade or replace old insulation in exterior walls

·         Seal up crawl spaces to eliminate drafts

·         Turn off the water to outdoor faucets, and remove hoses – draining the pipes first

·         Insulate accessible pipes and the water meter – especially if they’re in an uninsulated garage or basement

If you do find yourself dealing with frozen pipes, and you catch it before it turns into a bigger mess, try using a hair dryer to thaw the pipes. Never use an open flame to thaw pipes, this could cause a fire!

And for those who own a getaway home in Moultonborough, Meredith or Center Harbor that you only visit during the warmer seasons, consider installing a Wi-Fi thermostat from Stafford! Using your smartphone, desktop computer or any other Wi-Fi-enabled device you can keep an eye on the temperature in your home away from home during winter – and reach us quickly if you find that the temperatures are not where they should be. Ask us today how a Wi-Fi thermostat can benefit you!

Remember, the most important thing you can do to keep your home warm is to ensure your heating system is working reliably and that your fuel tank is always full. Trust Stafford Oil & Propane for all of your home heating and fuel delivery needs! Call or contact us online to learn more or to become a customer.

"Our household loves Stafford. The employees are friendly, prices are fair, and service has always been excellent. We call when we need an oil delivery (rather than auto delivery) and they've always made sure to get us on the schedule right away. The couple times our furnace stopped running they were able to get us in same-day without issue which is a huge relief. We use them for maintenance on both our furnace and central AC unit as well and have never had any complaints. Highly recommend them for your oil and HVAC needs!"
