Combined Energy Services loves pets and the people who help them! That’s why the Pike County Humane Society was the recipient of a $2,000 fuel oil donation. Chris Roberts (left) and Dan Driscoll (right) presented Barry Heim, executive director PCHS, a symbolic check for fuel oil that the shelter uses to heat their buildings.
The Pike County Humane Society prevents cruelty to animals by educating people in the humane treatment of all animals. They also teach about the responsibility of pet ownership.
In addition, PCHS provides shelter, food, care and medical treatment lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted animals that come under their care.
There are many ways you can give to the Pike County Humane Society. Donate a special skill! They have tons of ongoing projects and programs that can use volunteers. When you go shopping pick up supplies from their wish list or when using Amazon Smile, select the Pike County Humane Society as your chosen charity.
The PCHS is currently raising funds to obtain a commercial washing machine. Please consider a donation to make that a reality. Check out their website at https://www.pikecountyhumanesociety.org/
CES has donated to the Pike County Humane Society several times. In July, they donated another service van to the shelter. “We are always looking for ways to give back to our community. Whether in donations, heating fuel, service vans, or equipment,” commented Mike Taylor, manager of CES.
Who wants the unnecessary hassle of constantly checking gauges and scheduling deliveries before running out of gas? Why risk losing heat or hot water when you can avoid it? Sign up for automatic deliveries and let CES worry about the fuel level in your tanks.
As an incentive to sign up for automatic delivery, we will be giving away a snowblower to one of our automatic delivery heating fuel customers in January. All automatic delivery home heating customers will be eligible (regardless of fuel type). There is no registration required other than to either be on auto or to sign up for auto by January 22. The snowblower will be awarded after the close of business that day.
Benefits of enrolling in automatic Deliveries:
- No More Waiting. Don’t you hate when you run out of heating fuel? You call to schedule a delivery and the company you’re calling informs you that the delivery can not be until next week? With automatic deliveries, you don’t have to worry!
- No More Scheduling Deliveries. Our system monitors your usage and schedules a delivery based off that information.
- No More Gauge Checking. Forget about having to check gauges anymore. We monitor your tank, so you don’t have to!
- No More Out-Of-Gas Situations. There’s nothing worse than running out of heating fuel. With auto delivery, you shouldn’t run out of fuel*.
- Get Even More Protection with our Remote Tank Monitoring System. For a small monthly fee (or free is you use 600 gallons per year), customers can sign up and receive a wireless tank monitoring system. Ideal for homes with high usage or second homes and cottages, this added protection allows us to remotely monitor your system. We also have a remote monitoring application for fuel oil – the Smart Oil Gauge. Learn more!
- Use the CES Smartphone App for even more account insight! With both Apple & Android applications, the CES app is a great way to manage your account. You can view the estimated amount remaining in your tank, look at historical data (both payments & deliveries) and pay your bill. All with just a few swipes on the phone.
- Receive Additional Discounts with Automatic Delivery. When you’re a CES customer for central home heating and enroll in automatic deliveries, you will receive additional discounts like our Gasoline Loyalty Program. Receive 10 cents off per gallon of gasoline purchased at our Full-Service Gas Station.
How automatic delivery works?
Our automatic delivery system is designed to deliver propane or fuel oil when your tank is approximately 30%. We track information about weather, average heating fuel usage and any external factors that may affect the schedule of your delivery. This allows you to get heating fuel when you need it!
Current CES Customers: Want to enroll in Automatic Delivery? Contact us today at 800-874-1975 to get started or complete the form below.
*Note: Automatic delivery is not a guarantee that you will never run out of fuel. Unexpected usage (ie. running a generator during a power outage) is not something our system can calculate. If you do have unusual usage, please look at your gauge and let us know what it reads.
Being a local family-owned business means that you know the businesses you support. Helping organizations that help animals is meaningful to Combined Energy Services. That’s why for over 6 years CES has donated to the Sullivan County SPCA. This year’s $4,000 fuel donation will warm both hearts and paws during this holiday season. Pictured are Ariana holding one of their available puppies and shelter manager Debbie cuddling one of her adopted pups.
The Sullivan County SPCA is a local non for profit organization which is not affiliated with any national or governmental organizations. The mission of the shelter is to rescue and find forever homes for abandoned dogs and cats. Please keep the Sullivan County SPCA in mind during this season of giving!” They are currently in the process of fund-raising to help build new dog kennels. Check out their website: http://www.sullivanspca.org/ and please make a donation.
Tank Monitors for Propane & Fuel Oil
With all the modern technology available, there must be a way to monitor my propane or fuel oil tank remotely. You’re absolutely correct! CES offers remote monitoring for both propane AND fuel oil tanks.
For propane tanks, we offer a cellular monitor that tells us how much propane is always in your tank. The monitors are perfect for seasonal use homes or home with periodic propane use. They communicate back to our office and notify scheduling when a delivery is required, effectively eliminating the possibility of running out of propane.
The monitor is free if you use 600 gallons of propane per year, otherwise there is a $139/year fee. Think of it as spending $11.58 per month to know your home won’t run out of fuel. For less than 40¢ per day, you’ve got peace of mind.
This monitor works in conjunction with our CES smart phone app that is available for both Apple & Android phones. You can view the amount of remaining fuel in your tank and pay your bill. If you’re not a phone person, but want to remotely view your account, the same credentials are used on our website.
Home heating oil tanks also have a special monitor that works off your home’s Wi-Fi. The Smart Oil Gauge is easily installed on your aboveground oil tank and connected to your home Wi-Fi system. This remote monitoring system allows you to check your tank level at any time via your smartphone or computer.
You can set up text and email alerts when the tank is getting low and reminders that it’s time to order fuel. This system provides fuel consumption tracking that can show you how small changes in room temperature can affect your fuel usage. It even connects with your home’s cloud-based voice services. Ask Amazon’s Alexa how much fuel you have anytime.
The CES Smart Oil Gauge costs $79 installed. You must be or become a CES customer and order a minimum of 150 gallons of home heating oil. The gauge works on aboveground tanks that are inside or out.

All propane is created equally as a by-product from two processes: Natural gas processing and petroleum refining. About 90 percent of the United States’ propane supply is produced here and ¾ of the remaining 10 percent comes from Canada and Mexico. So virtually all the propane used in the U.S. comes from North America. But is it all the same?
Yes, propane is propane. There are 3 different grades of propane: HD5 (consumer grade), HD10 (allows up to 10% propylene mixed) and commercial propane (not for vehicle applications). It’s kind of like grades of eggs – Small, medium, large, extra large and jumbo. They’re all eggs, they just weigh different amounts. The creation of different grades of propane happens during the refining process.
What’s really different about propane is the company who delivers it and it’s more than just price. What kind of services do they offer besides delivering propane? Can they service your gas furnace if something goes wrong? Do they offer payment plans and purchasing options? Will they have enough propane on hand in the event of an emergency to serve their customers?
We believe that one of the most important features of great propane is where they operate. As one of only a few remaining family-owned, local energy companies, we offer propane deliveries from our New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations. Combined Energy Services invests in the communities we serve.
So, when you are looking for more than just propane, give us a call and learn about all we can offer you and your family. Visit our website combinedenergyservices.com and learn about all the great things we do!
