Ways to Save Energy This Fall

As we say hello to another beautiful fall in New England, we know we must begin to prepare for colder weather. New Englanders know that the cold season means more than just the changing of leaves. Along with fall and winter come freezing temperatures and the need for a good heating system in your Massachusetts home. Everyone has been spending a lot more time at home this year, and that looks like the case for the upcoming seasons. More time at home means you may spend more on your heating this season, so we are here to give you some tips and tricks to help save on your energy costs.

Tips and Tricks to Reduce Energy Use

Put these maintenance hacks on your fall to-do list, so you can get back to the best parts of the season: Sunday football, apple picking with the family, and checking out the fall foliage.

1. Install a Programmable Thermostat

This easy addition to your home can help your energy savings significantly. When you’re out of the house or sleeping, simply set your thermostat to lower the indoor temperature.

2. Schedule Annual Maintenance

Getting annual maintenance from a Ken Duval Oil heating specialist will help you save by promoting the efficient operation of your heating equipment, increasing your system’s lifespan, and reducing the risk of mid-season breakdowns. If you haven’t scheduled maintenance this year, contact us today.

3. Sign Up for a Budget Plan

Save big on your winter heating bills by spreading them out over the course of 12 months. We’ll estimate your annual fuel costs and divide it into affordable payments, so you can stress less about your heating oil costs this season.

4. Consider an Upgrade

Consider upgrading your heating equipment if it’s more than 15 years old. A new high-efficiency heating system will operate more effectively, helping save on heating bills. Plus, you’re a lot less likely to have to deal with expensive repairs and replacements.
