Our Top 8 Tips to Save Money on Home Heating This Year

1.      Tune up your heating system for maximum efficiency.

One of the best and easiest ways to save on heating costs this year is by booking your heating system tune-up with the pros at Noonan Energy. Our team of HVAC technicians can help keep your heating oil furnace or boiler running in peak condition for years to come. Scheduling this regular maintenance isn’t just good for saving on fuel costs by increasing efficiency; it can also help extend the lifespan of your heating system. Avoid missing out on this cost-saving service by contacting our team today to schedule your heating tune-up.

2.      Use sunlight to warm your home; close shades at night.

Keep curtains on south-facing windows open during the day so that the sun can naturally raise your home's indoor temperature. Just make sure you close them at night for an extra barrier against the evening chill.

3.      Lower the thermostat at night and when away.

Setting your thermostat to a lower temperature when you’re asleep or out of the house can help you save on heating costs. This way, you’re only using fuel when you need it.

4.      Insulate pipes to prevent heat loss and freezing.

Making sure your pipes are properly insulated can mean the difference between staying warm during cold weather and dealing with a no-heat emergency. Not only that, but a burst pipe can lead to costly damage to your home. Take the proactive approach and insulate your pipes to mitigate the risk of a heat-out situation.

5.      Seal gaps between doors and thresholds to stop heat loss.

Gaps between your doors and thresholds can be the culprit of a lot of household heat loss! Use a draft stop to fill in any gaps between the doors and thresholds around your home, stopping heat loss in its tracks.

6.      Caulk exterior spaces between windows and walls.

A tube of caulking can be your best friend when it comes to stopping those pesky little air leaks in and around your home. Use caulking to fill in exterior gaps between windows and walls, reducing the amount of warm air that escapes your home.

7.      Close vents and cover A/C units when not in use.

You probably aren’t thinking about your A/C unit at this time of year, and we don’t blame you! But closing your air conditioning vents and covering your A/C units when they aren’t in use is a great way to save on energy costs with very little effort.

8.      Avoid blocking radiators with furniture.

Take a look around your home. Is there any furniture blocking your radiators? It’s a good idea to move solid objects away from your radiators to let heat circulate more freely.
