We’ve always made it a point to conveniently and reliably deliver your fuel while giving you the best value for your dollar. That’s why it’s important to learn how to efficiently heat your home, so you can save more money on your monthly energy bills.


Should You Leave Your Heat On?

For years, people have been debating whether or not you should leave your heat on low all day, and we’re here to put that debate to rest. On the surface, leaving your heat at a constant temperature all the time makes sense. After all, doesn’t it cost more energy to heat up your home after the heat has been shut off for a long period of time? 

In actuality, you waste more energy and use more fuel by leaving the heat on all day. This is because heat loss will always occur due to the difference in temperature outside your house versus the temperature that you’re attempting to maintain on the inside. Even if you have world-class insulation, you will always lose some heat. So if you have your heat on 24/7, your system will constantly be using fuel to maintain the temperature inside.


Insulation is Key

The key to preventing heat loss, regardless if you leave the heat on 24/7, is to properly insulate your home. Having good insulation is the best way to save money on your energy bills – so seal up those drafty windows!


Set a Timer

If your thermostat is programmable, it’s important to set times for when you want your system to turn on and off. More modern thermostats even have the ability to set specific temperatures and certain times, so you’ll never have to manually turn on the heat when you need it.
