To cut down on oil heating costs, keep shades and drapes open during the day, and let the sun naturally warm your home. Crank the furnace when the sun falls, and draw the curtains to reduce heat loss.
  • Turn Down The Thermostat: Turning down the thermostat a few degrees at night, during the day, or when you’re out of town can shave up to 2% off your oil heating bill.
  • Insulate Drafty Areas: You can reduce heat loss and keep your oil furnace from working overtime by sealing drafty areas around the house. Use sealing caulk to fill gaps between window frames and doors.
