Efficiency Tricks & Treats to Prevent Heating Bills from Haunting You

October in New York and Connecticut is full of spooky haunts including outstanding neighborhood décor, haunted houses, and ghost walks galore. It can be fun to experience fear, but only on our terms—after all, you don’t want your source of fright to be caused by your heating bills skyrocketing unexpectedly! Check out the tricks (and treats) below to reduce your NY and CT home heating bills this fall.

NY & CT Home Heating Tricks

Heating Trick #1: Get a Programmable Thermostat

Having a programmable thermostat will allow you to automatically set your temperature to drop a few degrees when you’re asleep or out of the house. It’s a hassle-free way to reduce your fuel oil bills 10-30% annually[1] without sacrificing home comfort.

Heating Trick #2: Use Fans to Your Advantage

We all know heat rises—if your heater is on, run your fan slowly in a clockwise direction to push the air back down toward your living space. This will cut back on your oil heat equipment service costs and oil delivery bills by reusing your already-heated air.

Heating Trick #3: Leave the Oven Door Cracked after Cooking

Unless you have curious pets or little hands around, leave your oven door open a little after you finish cooking or baking. The heat from the oven will cycle into your home, saving you money on the heating fuel oil you’d have to use otherwise.
