Our annual Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge—and the many other events we participate in throughout the year—provide us with great opportunities to meet our friends and neighbors, stay involved and give back to the communities we love to serve.

This year’s Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge will be held on Saturday, October 17, and we are expecting it to be our biggest event ever!

As you may know, we founded the Pick 5 Challenge to benefit the Nether Providence Township First Responders (including the Nether Providence Police Department and volunteer fire companies of South Media and Garden City) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Philadelphia chapter.

Last year’s Pick 5 Challenge drew hundreds of participants and raised more than $19,000. In just four years, we have raised in excess of $66,000, plus an additional $25,000 just for Susan G. Komen through our Pink Truck campaign.

If you would like to participate in a walk, run or kids’ race this year, please visit our Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge page.

All pre-registered participants will receive a race T-shirt, and there will be breakfast and lunch for participants and their families. You can also count on fun and games for the kids, prizes for each age group, a raffle and more. Whether you plan to walk/run or not, you won’t want to miss out on the fun and excitement, so please mark your calendar for October 17.

For additional information, or to become a sponsor for this year’s event, please contact Betsy O’Connell at ejwo@wilsonoilandpropane.com or call 610-909-7905.

These days it is not unusual to hear about a local fuel dealer being bought out by a large corporation that’s located far away. This can result in deep disappointment for customers who prefer to do business with a local, family-owned business.

Wilson Oil & Propane has been a local, family-owned fuel company for nearly 90 years now. We’re a company that has deep roots in the community and cares about the people who live here.

Our programs and services, combined with the skill and experience of our experts, helps you save money year after year. You can depend on Wilson to keep you comfortable and safe today—and for many years to come, with the kind of friendly and personal service that you just can’t put a price on.

The one silver lining during last winter’s record cold and snowfall turned out to be heating oil prices, which reached their lowest point in six years. Looking ahead, there is optimism for long-term price stability. Technology has also brought us historic levels of production and heating fuel that burns cleaner than ever before.

Meanwhile, there are big concerns that natural pipelines might not be able to distribute enough fuel when temperatures enter the frigid zone. There are also thousands of miles of old pipelines in the country that won’t be replaced for decades because of the high expense: it can cost $1 million per mile, or more, to replace aging and often leaky pipes; these costs are typically passed to customers.

These emerging trends mean that switching from oil to natural gas now could very well turn out to be a bad decision.

What about switching from oil to propane?

This is a better option than changing your oil heating system to natural gas. If you already use propane in your home (cooking, fireplace, etc.), talk with us about the benefits of switching to a propane heating system. We have already converted many oil heating systems to propane, so we’re well versed in the process. For most propane appliances, hookup to the fuel lines is a simple procedure and less expensive than a connection to a natural gas line.

We understand the latest propane technology, charge reasonable rates and guarantee our work. Perhaps most important, when the job is done, you can count on us to maintain your propane equipment and ensure everything operates safely and efficiently.

Request your heating tune-up today!

If you have a problem with a newer car, a local mechanic may not be able to diagnose the problem as well as a dealership that specializes in servicing your particular model.

This analogy can be applied to our heating system tune-up service. We train our technicians to diagnose and fix virtually any problem on all types of systems. When it comes to your tune-up, we go above and beyond with services such as a combustion analysis on your system.

You will probably see a lot of ads for low-price tune-ups this fall, but if you want a proper and professional tune-up—one that makes sure your system runs safely and efficiently—there’s only one company to call: Wilson Oil and Propane.

If you haven’t done so already, please contact us to schedule your annual heating tune-up before the cold weather returns.

A tune-up keeps your system running efficiently, saves you money on fuel and helps you avoid costly repairs.

When you’re an “early bird” with your tune-up, you’ll be able to get an appointment that’s convenient for you. (Our tune-up schedule fills up fast after Labor Day). After your tune-up is done, you can relax knowing that your heating system is all set to take on winter.

As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, Wilson Oil and Propane can offer you exclusive Cool Cash incentives, including rebates of up to $1,450 on a new cooling or heating system—valid through November 15, 2015.

Wilson has won the Carrier President’s Award two times. This prestigious award recognizes Carrier dealers who exemplify leadership in customer satisfaction, product knowledge and operational excellence. More than just an “industry” honor, the Carrier President’s Award is a symbol to us that we are ‘getting it right’ for our customers.
