Back To School Tips

by Fontaine Family

It's time for Back-To-School

Wow, summer flies by here in Maine. 
It's time to get organized and send the kids back to school.
Check out our tips to get the school year started off smoothly...

1.  School Command Center - having a place to store backpacks and other items that need to go to school can save time and headaches in the morning.

2.  School Lunches - making school lunches the night before or for several days at a time can make the morning routine less stressful.

3.  Homework Station - setting up a designated place to do homework can make homework time go more smoothly.

Who's Thinking About Heating Season?

by Fontaine Family

 Why bother with it now?

Heating oil is usually less expensive in the summer months so now is a great time to fill up the tanks and save some money. 
When the cold weather sets in and demand for heating oil rises, so do the prices. 
Check Maine heating oil prices here.

When heating season starts, the companies who clean and service heating systems also get busy. 
If you wait until November to call, chances are you will be waiting for quite some time, or may even have to pay a fee for emergency service. 
If you call to schedule your service and cleaning for your heating system now, you will be ready for heating season without having to worry if your system is functional and safe.
