Saving Money

Here are some tips to save some money for just a few dollars …

  • Insulate your hot water heater
  • Turn down the temperature on your water heater to 120°
  • If you have a fireplace, make sure the damper is closed snugly (chimneys pull hot air out of a house).
  • Turn down your heat two degrees during the day and four degrees at night. Better still, install a programmable thermostat to automatically adjust your heat.
  • Keep your heating system clean, not just the furnace or boiler, but vacuum the baseboard and clean the radiators.

Spring Brook Brings Heat to Oak Street Renovation

Maine and Waterville agencies and officials recently got first peek at the restored property at 24 Oak Street. It is hoped that this attractive project will incentivize other restorations in the area. Owners Ed and Sandy Ervin stand at left on the porch.

Working with the Kennebec Valley Community Action Program, Spring Brook Ice and Fuel Company recently contibuted a Pinnacle Wood Pellet boiler to their restoration of the residence at 24 Oak Street in Waterville. The restoration is part of a Maine Community Development project to renew this older but valuable residential section of the City. In addition to the equipment, Spring Brook contributed its technical expertise to create a “dual fuel” system. The new home owner will burn pellets in all but the coldest parts of the year when a backup oil-fired boiler will suplement heat. Speaking at a recent “open house”, KVCAP Energy Director, Peter Wintle, thanked Spring Brook for its generosity. Company owners Sandy and Ed Ervin supported this project with the belief that the revitalization of traditional Waterville neighborhoods is critical to its future economic and residential vitality.
