3 Ways to Save Money With Home Heating Oil , Montville, Connecticut

Home heating oil can keep you warm and cozy even on winter’s coldest days. To curb heating costs, however, you may want to employ a few energy-saving measures. These three tips will help you stay comfortable all year round, even on a budget.

How to Save Money on Your Heating Costs

1. Seal Up Drafts

Any vulnerabilities in your home’s foundation, walls, windows, or doors can quickly lead to wasted heat. To promote energy efficiency, thoroughly inspect your home for any small cracks or flaws that may allow heat to slip out. Re-caulk these areas and consider placing rubber door blockers underneath exterior doors. You might also want to hire a contractor to evaluate your home’s insulation in the attic, which can be a significant source of heat loss.

2. Use a Smart Thermostat

So if you’ve already left the house and forgot to change the temperature settings, you can do it on the go. Most models also let you set timers for different settings, so the system will automatically adjust to an economy mode when you plan to be out of the house. Some apps will even allow you to run reports to help you understand your heating oil usage and projected costs. 

3. Don’t Miss Maintenance

At least once a year, schedule a routine maintenance checkup for your heating system. A professional technician can address any issues that can make your furnace run less efficiently, such as a dirty filter or faulty blower motor. These quick, simple visits can ultimately extend the lifespan of your system and help you cut costs for repairs or premature replacement.
