3 Tips for Reducing Your Oil Consumption This Winter, West Haven, Connecticut

The colder months are officially here, which means most people have started turning up the heat. However, putting your heating system to use inevitably increases your oil consumption. That makes this the most crucial time of year for learning about the many ways you can cut back on your home heating oil use. Thankfully, there are a handful of helpful tips and tricks that will make your winter both comfortable and affordable.

To reduce your oil consumption, this year you can: 

  • oilUse A Programmable Thermostat: If your home is still equipped with an older thermostat, you're missing out on a bunch of new features that make them more convenient than ever. Simple functions allow you to set the heat so it lowers when the house is empty and comes back up to a comfortable level when it's needed most. 
  • Replace Your Unit Or Update Components: The same applies to older furnaces and boilers, which don't boast the same high-efficiency ratings as new models. And just because you have a contemporary model already doesn’t mean you can’t make it more efficient. There are a number of new components, like a flame-retention oil burner, that will help you conserve oil.
  • Schedule Regular Maintenance: Sometimes, your furnace or boiler just needs a little attention to keep it running as efficiently as possible. Schedule regular professional maintenance to clean and service your unit annually. Another benefit of maintenance is getting regular access to a professional opinion, so you'll know when it's time to repair or replace your furnace.

You and your family shouldn't have to concern yourselves with spending an arm and a leg just to stay warm this winter. All of these oil consumption tips will add up to big savings when practiced together, so schedule service soon and get a head start on your oil efficiency.
