Farmers' Almanac 2012-2013 Official Winter Weather Forecast Map

The Farmers' Almanac has long been known for foretelling the weather with amazing accuracy.  This year's Winter Weather Forecast Map is now available.  And for our Clean Burn customers in Maryland, Delaware and Lancaster PA, a look at this map is great way to start preparing for the cold winter ahead.

Follow this link here to see the Farmers' Almanac Winter Forecast Map:  The forecast is cold and snowy for the Northeastern part of the United States.

A cold winter has many positive business implications for Auto Repair Shops in the Northeast.  Icy and snowy weather means more fender benders.  Towing companies get busy and drivers flock to their local Auto Body repair shops.  Many drivers prepare for the winter weather by getting a tune up in September or October.  New tires are purchased and installed in preparation for snowy weather.

Heating your shop can become a challenge when that cold weather hits and the winter winds blow, particularly if your building is not well insulated or if your doors are open often.  Heating bills often go through the roof, bringing business owners to ask the question:  How can I save money on my heating bills?

If your company is not prepared for heating during this year's winter weather, or for more information about Clean Burn waste oil furnaces,  please contact Eco Heating Systems at 866-888-1103.

Reminder:  #1 reason for Service Calls this time of year.

As the nights get cooler, we realize that cold weather is coming so keep an eye on the oil levels in your tank. You will burn through your oil more quickly with these colder temperatures.

To avoid running out of fuel:
1.         Check your tank every day and keep your tank at least half full at all times
2.         Don’t let your used oil hauler take oil without your permission.
3.         Remember, the pickup tube is 10 to 12 inches of the bottom of your tank so it doesn’t pick up the junk that settles at the bottom of the tank.  As a result, it is easy to overestimate the amount of available oil in your tank.
