Posted at 11:49 AM, Nov 01, 2016

Now that the cold weather is moving in, many people are staring down home heating costs. When it comes to the propane commodity market, Crystal Flashworks very hard to leverage buying power and storage capacity to provide low prices, the company said.

Because of diversified supply, Crystal Flash is able to pull from different pipeline terminals to protect from disruption of supply. All of this allows them to confidently supply your needs all year-long, as a propane user, to protect your pricing. This then allows you to plan for an entire year of costs.

There are many benefits to a Price Protection Program, according to Crystal Flash.

  • Fixed Price: this guarantees a fixed rate for each delivery you get during the heating season. Regardless of your actual usage, Fixed Price provides you an excellent level of pricing security.
  • Fixed Budget: this estimates your propane heating costs over the entire year. You would make predictable monthly payments rather than paying when you take a specific delivery.
  • Cap Price programs: as one of the more popular program options, you can lock in a rate that will be the maximum you'll pay per gallon, regardless of market prices rising above your rate.  Also, if market prices fall below your locked-in rate, you will pay the lower rate.
  • Pre-Buy: consumers pre-purchase their propane for the upcoming heating season. This program normally has the lowest price and is a great option for those who have a better idea of just how much propane they will need.
