‘Tis the season for holiday movies. One of my favorites is “A Christmas Story.”
If you’re like me, you’ve see it a hundred times. One of my favorite scenes is when The Old Man, Ralphie’s father, descends into the basement a monster – their furnace. Here’s the dialogue:

THE OLD MAN: It’s a clinker! That blasted stupid furnace dadgummit! [He walks down a few stairs to the cellar and slips down the rest.] Damn skates! [Coughing] Oh, for cripes sake, open up the damper will ya? Who the hell turned it all the way down? AGAIN! Oh, blast it!
RALPHIE (narrating): In the heat of battle, my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that, as far as we know, is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan.

Today, things are much different. You’ll never have to battle with a modern heating system. And you can depend on the help of the trained technicians at W.H. Riley & Son. Thanks to the latest technology, a modern heating system is about the size of a three-drawer file cabinet – and far more efficient.
For example, if a home consumes 1,000 gallons of fuel annually at 73% combustion efficiency, and a new system boosts efficiency to 85%, fuel consumption will drop to around 860 gallons a year.
That’s 140 gallons saved, or a 14% return on your money, each and every year. Try getting that kind of return in the stock market.

W.H. Riley installs oil-fired and propane heating systems. And all fuel-buying customers are covered for service, 24/7, 365 days a year. Don’t battle the monster in the basement. Contact W.H. Riley & Son at 508-699-4651, 508-822-1282, info@whriley.com or at www.whriley.com
