The holiday season is over, and your budget might be recovering from all the celebrations and gifts. Everyone would benefit from a little extra savings to start the New Year, and Reliable Oil & Heat can help!

Conserving energy on your home comfort will boost your savings by lowering your monthly energy bills. Here are a few tips from our energy experts to help put more money into your back pocket this winter:

  • Seal air leaks: If you’re feeling a draft in your home, it might be due to an air leak coming from an unsealed window, door, or wall. The cold air coming in will lower your home’s temperature and raise your energy bill, so it’s important to seal those leaks to save as much as you can.
  • Change the direction of your ceiling fan: Switching the direction of your fan to rotate in a clockwise direction will circulate warm air around your room by creating an updraft, allowing your heating equipment to work more efficiently.
  • Open the shades: Letting sunlight in during the day can naturally heat your home, giving your home comfort system a break. Remember to close your shades at night to block the cold from coming in.
  • Lower Your Thermostat: When you’re not home or sleeping, turn down your thermostat. It’s a simple way to save up to 15% a year on your heating costs!
