Don’t let the temporary bump in temperatures fool you – cold nights are coming to Connecticut soon. Here are five things you can do to prepare your home as the mercury drops – and save a few bucks along the way.
Weatherize – If you’re not sealing air leaks around your house, 20 percent of your heat could literally be going out the window (or your door, your light switch, etc.). For as little as $30 worth of materials, you could save you hundreds of dollars in heating bills this fall and winter.
Consider adding insulation, especially in your attic – Insulation is one of the best bang-for-the-buck investments you can make in your home from an energy efficiency standpoint. Most homeowners under-apply insulation, especially in their attic – are you one of them?
Sign up for a Service Plan – Investing in a high-value Jennings Oil Service Plan that covers your routine heating system maintenance will pay off now (with lower energy bills and greater comfort) and later (with fewer repairs).
Sign up for convenient and FREE programs like EZ Pay and Automatic Delivery – Running out of heating oil isn’t fun – but you can avoid that hassle by signing up for FREE Automatic Delivery from Jennings Oil. And if you want to avoid unexpectedly high monthly bills this holiday season, try our EZ pay option, which spreads your year’s energy expenses over 12 equal payments (it will save you 3 percent on your annual bill, too…contact us to learn more).
Consider replacing your older heating system – Upgrading to a new, high-efficiency furnace or boiler can save you 30 percent or more on your monthly heating bill. The new equipment can pay for itself in as little as three years.
