Tips to Reduce Your Risk of a NH No-Heat Emergency

Winter in New England can be unpredictable, but if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that following these tips is a great way to stay safe and warm this winter.

Sign up for automatic heating oil delivery

The easiest way to ensure you’ll have heat when you need it is to sign up for automatic fuel oil delivery service from your local provider. Your fuel company will remotely monitor your tank, keep an eye on the weather, and deliver oil before your tank runs empty. The best part about automatic delivery is there’s no additional fees – you get convenience without cost!

Consider installing a programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat can help you reduce your fuel oil usage, making it last longer and provide more sustainable heat. You can program your thermostat to lower temperatures when you’re sleeping or away from the house, giving you more range per tank of home heating oil.

Check tank levels if you’re a will-call customer

If you prefer to manage your fuel levels and are a will-call customer, be sure to check your tank gauge regularly to you know when you’re starting to run low. It’s crucial to remember that to account for delivery scheduling, you should order oil when your tank is no lower than 1/4th full.

Schedule routine maintenance for Your heating system

Having an annual heating system tune-up is the best way to ensure your home heating oil furnace or boiler will work when you need it to. We recommend that NH customers book system tune-ups at least once per year by scheduling an appointment with your local provider, or signing up for any service plans they may offer.

Consider upgrading your heating system

Like anything, heating equipment declines over time. In the case of your heating system or boiler, this means a less efficient heating system and a greater possibility of there being a breakdown. If your heating system is more than 15 years old, contact your fuel provider about new system upgrades.
