How To Reduce My Fuel Bills?

Have you just filled up your oil tank recently, or checked your latest gas bill this winter?  Like me, your jaw probably dropped when you saw the price.  The price of fuel to heat your home has risen exponentially this year and taken a toll on us all.  So what can you do? There must be a way to make that gallon of home heating oil last longer then it currently does.  Well fortunately, there are some things that you can do in your home that do not require much time or upfront cost.  Here are a few tips.

First, I would start by updating the thermostat in your home.  Some older style thermostats actually use a small mercury ball to measure the indoor temperature in the room.  Kind of a scary thought.  Updating to a digital thermostat or even a “Smart” thermostat is a great low cost option to help lower your annual fuel costs.   Digital thermostats often are more accurate and have options to set a schedule in your home.  I find A lot of customers of mine do not like the heat to be set so high over night while they sleep, or during the time that they leave the house to go to work.  A digital thermostat will give them an option to automatically turn the temperature down at selected times.  A “smart” thermostat, depending on which brand, can even adjust and learn your schedule or sense when you are home to turn the heat on and off accordingly.

Another thing you can look for are the condition of your baseboard heaters.  More often then not, when I get a complaint from a customer that the heat just does not seem to be keeping up, I find at least one of three things before I even make it to the boiler room.  Couches and furniture pushed right up against the baseboard.  Baseboards actually work by drawing the cold air in the room from the floor, then producing warmer air out of the upper openings.  Furniture has to be at least 18 inches away from the baseboard in order for it to work properly.  Also, if you have rugs in your home, make sure the rugs do not come up too high and block the pathway for air to move.  Something else that every home owner should be periodically checking is the condition of the metal fins of the baseboard.  The metal fins that sit behind the cover love to attract dust and pet hair.  A quick run of the vacuum will unclog that pathway that air wants to take and actually help produce more heat.   These are three quick things to check that do not even require a call to a plumbing and heating contractor!  In some cases you might notice that the metal fins are crushed and warped or even missing due to age or past leak repairs.  If you notice this in your home, it may be a better option to consider replacing with new High Efficiency baseboard heaters.

Lastly, to seriously cut your fuel costs, you can consider installing an “Outdoor Reset Control” to your current equipment.  If your home uses a boiler to heat your home, (you have either baseboard heaters or radiators, or possibly even radiantly heated floors), installing these features can see fuel savings of up to 30%.  That’s huge!  So what is an “Outdoor Reset Control”?  It is a control strategy that adjusts the heat output of your boiler based on the current outdoor temperature.  In a nut shell, as it is now, your heating equipment is (or should be if installed properly) designed to be able to heat your home on the coldest day of the year.  For those of us living on Long Island N.Y., that coldest day of the year is about 15 degrees.  At 15 degrees, your equipment is putting out 100% capacity.  But what about when it is only 40 degrees outside.  It is still putting out 100% capacity.  That is a waste of fuel!  An “Outdoor Reset Control” would reduce the output of your equipment to match the outside temperature and still keep you warm.  A good analogy that was taught to me is to think of it as your car.  While driving your car on main street, if you hit a stop sign or a red light every 20 feet, you will use more gas.  The goal is to get on the expressway (not during rush hour of course) so that you can just coast leisurely at a steady 55MPH.  That is what we want to do with your heating equipment.  We want it to leisurely produce heat at a steady rate, as apposed to turning on then off constantly for short periods of time.

If you would like an assessment of your current heating equipment, please feel free to call today to see how you can reduce your fuel bills.




It is a thought that has been in the back of your mind probably for years…..”Should I replace my heating system?”.  Winter is here, and for many Long Islanders, their boiler is quietly (or maybe not so quietly) chugging along providing our homes with heat.  Like many of us, we hear the baseboard crackle and pop as it heats up and that 180 degree water flows through the pipes, and that’s all we need to know.  The heat works and we are happy.  But is it working as best as it really should be?  Maybe it has been a while since a heating contractor has done a tune-up and cleaned it out, or maybe age is slowly catching up to it making it less efficient every year.  Either way, this could be costing you money either in emergency repairs or in your fuel bills.

So you are here and you are asking yourself, “Is it time to replace my boiler?”…You’ve probably been saying it for years, just hoping it lasts one more winter.  I’ve said the same about the boiler in my own house.  It is understandable, the hesitation in wanting to replace such an expensive piece of equipment.  With so many options in equipment and brands, fuel sources, and hot water production, it can seam a little daunting.  But it doesn’t have to be.  That is why is it so important to hire qualified plumbing and heating contractors and to get multiple quotes before spending any money.  Think of this as an investment.  A new heating system will save you money, it wont cost you.  When hiring a reputable contractor, your new equipment will be registered for the manufactures warranties, and most contractors will offer a warranty as well.  So the piece of mind is there.  This doesn’t have to be a stressful process when you hire the right people.

When a customer calls us to get an estimate on a replacement, I go through a couple of steps before presenting any options.   Step1)..First, I start with how much heat does your home need for you to be comfortable on the coldest day of the year.  After doing a quick inspection of the home and doing some measurements, I can determine what size boiler you will need.  This is the most important step.  Too big of a boiler and you will spend more in fuel, and too small of a boiler and it will have a hard time keeping up on those cold nights…Step2)  We talk about hot water production.  Are you currently happy with the way your home makes hot water, or will this be the time to make some changes to your system.  This is an important conversation to have because this may effect the size of the boiler as well, or what type of boiler….Step3) The last step is to design a system that will fit your home and your budget.  We don’t always need to break the bank, or completely change your house to fit a new system.  A common misconception is that the only way to save money on fuel, is to switch to a high efficiency gas boiler.  This is simply not true.  There are great oil fired boilers and piping designs out there that can save you money each and every year.  It is not always necessary to go through the trouble of an oil to gas conversion.  However, if switching to gas is something that you are interested in, we are here to make that a stress free experience for you.

Bottom line is that a new boiler is an investment for your home and your health.  You deserve a safe and healthy heating system.  If you would like any more information or have any questions, please feel free to call today! 631-255-0287
