2019 Resolutions: Six home comfort promises to make and keep
Believe it or not, 2019 has arrived – and that means it’s time once again to make your New Year’s Resolutions. Why not make some that will cut stress and make you more comfortable in your Ontario home?
Here are six promises to make and keep that will save you money, make you happy, and give you more peace of mind in 2018:
- Change your air filters – One of the best things you can do to keep your heating equipment running efficiently and reliably is also the easiest: check your air filters regularly (at least once a month during the winter). A clogged filter will raise your energy bills and cause unnecessary wear and tear on your equipment.
- Use your programmable thermostat – Lower the temperature by seven to ten degrees when you’re asleep or out of the house and you could cut your bills by 10 percent or more. The easiest way to do that? Use your programmable thermostat. If you don’t own one, make the investment – it will pay for itself in the first year you use it.
- Equal-ize – Stressed by the surprisingly high heating bills? Sign up for our Equal Budget Plan and you will get the same bill every month no matter how much heating oil or propane you use.
- Maintain your heating equipment – Want your home heating and cooling equipment to run better for longer? Never miss an annual tune-up. Better yet, get two – one in the spring and one in the fall. Tune-ups pay for themselves by keeping efficiency high and repair risk low.
- Simplify – Why get two energy bills when you can get one? If you use both propane and heating oil, become a Core Fuels customer and make us your dual fuel provider.
- Re-commit to safety – If you don’t have carbon monoxide detectors installed at every level of your home, just do it – these inexpensive fail-safes provide peace of mind, and could even save a life. If you use propane, also consider installing propane leak detectors to prevent risks associated with propane odor loss – and be sure to review safety procedures with loved ones if you power your home with propane.
