ENERGY SAVING TIPS:
UPGRADE TO AN ENERGY STAR BOILER
By installing new Energy Star heating equipment, you will use up to 30% less oil and lower your utility bill substantially.
UPGRADE YOUR OIL BURNER PACKAGE
If an oil system is over 10 years old, replacing the old burner with a retention head burner is significantly less expensive than replacing the entire system. You can increase your boiler’s efficiency by 15%. The payback can be as quick as two years.
USE WATER MORE EFFICIENTLY
Heating water represents up to 20% of total home energy costs. Insulating your hot water tank, lowering the water temperature, installing water-saving shower heads and using cold water for laundry are just some money saving options.
INSTALL ENERGY-SAVING DEVICES
One inexpensive energy-saving device is a programmable thermostat. For every degree you lower the thermostat, you will save at least 1% in efficiency. Lower the temperature while you are sleeping or away from home.
SCHEDULE AN ANNUAL TUNE-UP
An annual tune-up will ensure maximum performance of every drop of heating oil and every watt used to generate heat and electricity, reducing your energy costs by 10%.
There is no greater green investment that provides a faster rate of return than upgrading to energy-efficient equipment for heating & cooling your home.
