Like you, all of us at John R. Young & Company and our assorted divisions have seen our lives affected by COVID-19 and the Coronavirus. We wanted to take a moment to address our customers and vendors about what JRY is doing to help combat Coronavirus and keep you all and our employees safe during this difficult and frustrating time.
Doubtless, you have received and read several similar statements from other organizations that you’ve done business with. We, too, are following the guidelines put forth by the WHO and CDC to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We are reminding our employees about the importance of frequent and thorough hand washing, and increased disinfection and cleaning of our facilities and equipment. Our delivery drivers have been instructed to wear disposable gloves when handling product and making a delivery. We have implemented a policy encouraging all customers to pay via phone when possible. When and where possible, we are asking capable employees to work from home.
There has been some confusion about how safe, or not, it may be to handle packaging or receive a delivery. The WHO and CDC maintain that you are unlikely to contract the COVID-19 virus by handling a shipping container or cardboard. So long as it is prudent for us to do so, we will continue to make deliveries, both of packaged lubricant products and fuel oil and bulk oil products.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Young’s. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have or go into further detail about the measures we’re undertaking to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Life can get busy for homeowners – between school, extracurricular activities for the kids, and work, who has time to remember routine HVAC maintenance? Most of us don’t even remember that we have an HVAC system and simply take it for granted until something goes catastrophically wrong.
If your HVAC system dies, you’re facing a serious problem – both with comfort and money. Avoid those issues with a Home Comfort Plan! Young’s Home Comfort provides a range of plans for every homeowner on any budget to keep your system running efficiently through a variety of coverages.
When you’re driving your car down the road, you generally keep an eye on the fuel gauge to make sure you won’t be left hanging on the side of the highway. The same attention should be paid to your home’s oil tank!
Waking up in the middle of the night to a freezing cold house is the home equivalent to running out of gas on the road – it’s incredibly inconvenient and potentially dangerous. Running out of oil can let your home’s temperature plummet, creating the risk of frozen or burst pipes in the walls.
Heating oil is by and large one of the safest fuels you can use to heat your home – however, safety is always important, especially when dealing with the safety of your family and your home. Today, we want to go through any potential risks associated with your home oil burner and provide you the peace of mind to enjoy the holidays at home with your family.
Can you feel it? Fall is finally here, beckoning in cooler nights and maybe even a frost or two. While it’s still perfectly pleasant during the day, we know that cold weather is looming in the distance, and it’s important to remember that your home may not be perfectly cold-weather ready!
Everyone knows the Saturday morning drill of waking up, glancing over the growing list of projects, and decide which ones can wait another week or two (or five). However, it’s important to begin protecting your home from the cold as soon as possible to avoid damage with an early, unexpected frost or freeze.
Fortunately, there are several simple steps to get your home ready for cooler temperatures without calling a professional or breaking the bank. Weatherproofing can be simple and cost-effective, especially if it’s done early in the season.
Goodbye summer, hello fall! The leaves will be changing soon, the temperatures will cool, and your windows will be thrown open wide to beckon in the crisp fall air. With that in mind, perhaps it’s about time to give your HVAC system a quick check before the seasonal transition from air conditioning to heat takes full effect.
Today, we want to take a look at some simple, effective ways to prep your HVAC system for the transition from cool to heat. As always, we encourage you to seek advice from a professional on the Young’s Home Comfort team if something appears to be damaged or missing from your unit upon inspection.
During the 20th century, oil heat got a bad rap for being inefficient, unreliable, and dangerous. In order to stay in business, oil companies around the world have put their heads together and come up with solutions to each complaint that surrounded heating oil. Today’s heating oil is biodegradable and 95% cleaner than it’s ever been!
We know that summer is in full swing – but is it ever too early to refill your oil tank for the chilly fall nights that are looming ahead? If you don’t refuel now and get stuck one night in autumn’s chill, fear not! Young’s Home Comfort is here to provide 24-hour emergency oil delivery service.
Now, obviously it’s never ideal to wake up to a cold house. Particularly in the winter months, running out of oil can have disastrous consequences in the form of frozen pipes, drafty windows, and over-stressed HVAC units. To avoid running out of oil and subsequently needing our 24-hour emergency oil delivery service, we recommend that you enroll in our automatic delivery service!
Over the years, technology has made enormous strides. Advances in automotive engineering, chemistry, personal electronics, and more have flooded the globe, changing us as humans along the way. With all of the new technologies, it only makes sense that some of the advances would alter how we stay comfortable in our homes. That’s where programmable thermostat’s come in, and they’re shaking up the home comfort game.
Programmable thermostats are a piece of technology that everyone saw coming, but no one quite understood until it arrived. Now that it’s here, we’re wondering how we ever survived without it! Today, we want to take a look at some of the features latest and greatest programmable thermostats, and how they measure up against a traditional thermostat.
