Maintenance and Conservation Tips
- Maintain your heating system. You should have it checked by a professional at least once a year to ensure your home heating oil is burning efficiently.
- Change the filters regularly. Every filter is different, read the packaging for suggested intervals.
- Adjust thermostats; keep it 65 degrees during the day and 55 degrees during sleeping hours or when the house is unoccupied.
- Replace old thermostats with programmable thermostats so you can set schedules.
- Open drapes and blinds on the south side of your home during sunny days, close them at night and on cloudy days.
- Do not block registers and hot water radiators.
- Place foil-covered cardboard between cast iron hot water radiators and the wall to reflect the heat into the room and away from the wall.
- Install storm doors and windows. The space they create makes an excellent insulator.
- Have adequate insulation throughout the house and around your water heater.
- Seal cracks and holes around windows and doors. If warm air gets out you are losing home heating oil you paid for.
