Winner of Free Heat for a Year

Kristen Burton from Monfort Heights has won free heating oil for a year! January through March of 2015, Lykins Energy Solutions ran a free heat for a year campaign.  They sent out registration information directly to homes, advertised the campaign online and had a registration box at the Cincinnati Home and Garden Show.  They had over 2000 registrations for either $1,000 in Propane or $2,000 in Heating Oil.  The winner, Kristen Burton, was drawn on April 1st 2015.

I WON!  I never win anything, so when I first read the email from Lykins that I won the free heat for a year I just couldn’t believe it!  A few months ago I was online searching for a new provider for our heating oil.  I came across the Lykins website and entered the contest, it payed off!  I am so excited that we will not have to worry about heating cost this coming winter.  I am looking forward to being a forever customer of Lykins.  I am so glad I found them!  Thank you so much!

-Kristen Burton

Congratulations Kristen!

Lykins Energy Solutions Blood Drive on February 20th.

Hoxworth Blood Center

Don Lykins, (2nd generation ownership of Lykins) died of blood cancer just a few short years ago.  Don had several blood transfusions over the course of his treatment, which prolonged his life for many years.  Without the generosity of volunteer blood donors, Don would have had a much shorter life.  Lykins Energy Solutions remains committed to sponsoring our yearly blood drive in Don’s name.

Your donation does matter.  Every donation can save the lives of up to three people.  All it takes to volunteer is fifteen minutes to help someone in need.

When thinking about donation blood, please consider these points:
-More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
-Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors.
-Most donated red blood cells must be used within 42 days of collection.
-Donated platelets must be used within 5 days of collection – new donations are constantly needed.

Please visit www.hoxworth.org/groups/lykins and click on the big red “Donate Blood” circle in the center of the page to schedule your time slot.

PUCO Warns of Utility Payment Scam

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio is warning utility customers of a payment scam that has surfaced across the state over the past few weeks.

The scam is targeting particularly electric and natural gas utility customers, both residential and small business.  A caller claiming to represent the utility informs the customer that they owe money from their past bill and must pay immediately or face termination of service.  Customers are instructed to purchase a pre-paid debit card and then call a toll free number to transfer the money.

Most utilities do not ask for pre-paid debit cards for payment and provide ample time for customers to make a payment before service is terminated.  Customers having questions about their account should call the appropriate utility.  A listing of PUCO regulated utility company customer service numbers can be found here.

Customers believing they have been a victim of payment fraud are encouraged to contact their local authorities as well.

PUCO Advises to Arrange for Propane Supply Early

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and the Propane Education & Research Council have posted 5 steps to take to prepare for the coming winter season.

1. Check your current propane supply.  Make sure that you are aware of your current supply to decide your needs to get through the heating season.

2. Call your provider.  Get in touch with the propane provider that issued your tank.  Begin a good working relationship and develop a plan for your propane supply including refills, automatic refills and payment programs to make sure your tank stays full.

3. Fill up early.  By filling your tank early (before the demand for propane increases due to falling temperatures) you can help your provider better plan for supply needs so that everyone has a safe and comfortable winter.

4. Make sure your home or business is running efficiently.  Have a technician check your appliances and propane system, look for energy efficient upgrades like programmable thermostats, let the sun naturally heat your home by opening curtains and set your water heater no higher than 120 degrees.

5. Explore the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).  HEAP is available to income-eligible customers in Ohio.  For more information visit www.winterheat.ohio.gov
