Heating Oil Use Tips: Use Less Oil and Save More Money

If you’re like us, you love a tip…especially when it’s a tip about saving money. If that describes you, read on for some heat-saving and money-saving tips.

How can I use less heating oil and save money this winter?

These three steps will help you use less heating oil and save more money this winter!

Step #1: Address cracks, gaps, and insulation. Before you spend hundreds of dollars on space heaters (and ugly sweaters), spend $20 on a good caulking gun and some expanding spray foam and start sealing. You may be surprised at how much less drafty other rooms in your house become. 

Step #2: Use the right thermostat to save money and use less heating oil. Keeping your home’s thermostat set to the same temperature (72°F) all winter actually causes you to lose heat. That’s because the hotter it is inside – and the colder it is outside – the larger the force behind the cold air pushing the hot air out. A way to combat this is to switch out your old manual thermostat for a programmable one. They’re simple to install and can be set to automatically turn on and off at specific times of the day or night to maximize heating efficiency.

Step #3: Add insulation to your basement to use less heating oil.
Don’t ignore your basement. Basements are the biggest entryway for cold air to enter your home—so looking into ways to add insulation directly to the walls and ceiling will reduce the amount of incoming air. Also make sure to seal around the sill plate (the long piece of wood that sits directly on top of the foundation wall) for extra insulation.
