Fuelin’ Facts

 

  • One way to reduce the high cost of home heating is to have a programmable thermostat installed. By setting it to automatically lower the temperature from 72 degrees and 66 degrees when you’re sleeping or not at home, you could save 10% on your annual energy costs.*
  • If your oil heating equipment is 20 years old or more, you could save as much as 5% annually by having a professional tune-up to make sure your system is operating at peak efficiency.*
  • Take a look around your house and check for drafts around doors windows and or even electrical outlets. By adding caulk, weather stripping or foam insulation you can block out winter cold – which means lower bills and less stress on your heating system.
  • Insulation is another key. Much heat is lost in attics as well as basement walls.
  • Make sure that nothing obstructs baseboards and heating vents. Move couches, armchairs, and bookcases out of the path of warmth.
  • Close your curtains and shades at night to keep the warmth in, but open them during the day to take advantage of the sunshine.
  • Enter and leave your home quickly. Every time an outside door opens and closes, there is a 21 square foot hole in the wall to let in the cold.
  • Close your fireplace damper when the fireplace is not in use.
  • Wear a sweater. Sometimes the best way to save energy is to insulate yourself.
