Keep It On
If you’re going away for a week or two, it is important to keep the heat on in your home. It is also important to have a friend or family member check on your home on a daily basis to make sure the heat is running. Protect your heating system and home from extreme cold by keeping the heat on—but reduce the heat by five to ten degrees.
Inspect & Clean the System
Remember to call and schedule the annual maintenance. A licensed technician can keep your unit running a peak efficiency. Servco Oil & Propane’s technicians are all licensed and they never use subcontractors!
Replace the air filters on a regular basis and if you have animals in the home change them more frequently. An air filter takes the dust out of the air it pushes into your home, and since you’re about to have it working overtime, it’s important to make sure it’s up to the task.
Get a Programmable Thermostat
Programmable thermostats can be a great addition to your homes system. Adjusting it according to your family’s lifestyle can save fuel when the temperature goes down. Simply replacing an old thermostat can reduce your energy bill. Some predict that reducing how much you heat by even one degree can reduce your energy bill by up to 3%.
