Smart Ways to Save on PA Home Energy
Shopping around for spring savings? Stover Energy has you covered! As we transition from the cold season to the warmth, keep these ways to save in mind. Combine the suggestions for even more energy savings and ultimate Pennsylvania home comfort.
Smart Way to Save #1: Switch to High Efficiency
Upgrading your air conditioning or heating equipment to a high-efficiency model will cut back significantly on your home comfort bills. Besides, new systems are less likely to need repairs and emergency service. Just remember that all HVAC equipment, old and new, needs annual maintenance to keep it running efficiently!
Smart Way to Save #2: Take a Cold Shower
Taking cooler showers may seem less than appealing to some Greater Hershey, Pennsylvania customers, but lowering your body temperature on hot days can keep you more comfortable over time, while also cutting costs on your water heating bills.
Smart Way to Save #3: Soak up the Sun
Spring weather in Pennsylvania is unpredictable, to say the least. Be smart about the weather and open curtains and blinds when the sun is shining. But don’t forget to close treatments at night: this time of year is known for having chilly overnights that can suck the warmth out of your home.
Smart Way to Save #4: Fill Your Heating Oil Tank
Some customers leave their oil tanks empty over the summer, but this can do more harm than good! Empty oil tanks run the risk of collecting internal condensation when they’re kept in humid environments, which causes rusting and corrosion that’s invisible from the outside. Fill your oil tank over the summer to prolong its lifespan and save on a replacement.
Smart Way to Save #5: Insulate Your Home
Sometimes people focus so much on heating or cooling their homes that they don’t realize that air is leaking out through their attics or garages! Be sure to have your home insulated so you aren’t paying to condition all the air in your neighborhood.
Smart Way to Save #6: Use Human Power
Now that spring is here, the weather is warmer and the days are longer. If you live close enough to your destination, try walking or biking instead of driving your car. You’ll save on gasoline costs while exercising your body and getting some fresh air at the same time.
