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.
  • Cut down on drafts, especially under doors (with a strip of towel or "draft snake") and around windows (your local building center has a clear, peelable caulk that fills cracks nicely and is easily removed in the spring.) On a cold, windy day, feel for cracks—then plug them!
  • Use cold water in clothes washing.
  • Check for cracks where your foundation meets the sill timbers of the house. These are major reasons for cold floors and should be plugged.

  • Get our heating technician to clean and tune your heating equipment Just a 10% increase in combustion efficiency leads to big savings. On an annual heating oil purchase of 800 gallons, that is 80 gallons saved or $200! You are not just saving money but saving the environment.
