Energy Saving Tips

Here are some of Baker Petroleum's recommendations for saving energy in your home or workplace today:

  1. Get a heating system tune up – it’ll ensure you get maximum performance from every drop of oil or propane burned.
  2. Open shades and drapes when the sun is out and let it help warm your home. Close them when the sun goes down.
  3. Turn back the thermostat at night or when you are away from home; for every degree you lower your thermostat 8 hours or more each day; you’ll save 2 percent on your heating bill
  4. Wrap your pipes to guard against heat loss and prevent them from freezing.
  5. Stop drafts by eliminating any gaps between your door and the threshold on the floor. Use a bottom seal that can be attached to the bottom of the door – it should brush up against the floor to seal up the threshold.
  6. Caulk or re-caulk exterior spaces between windows and walls of your home.
  7. Close the kitchen vent, fireplace damper and closet doors when not in use.
  8. If you have central air conditioning, close your vent(s) to the outside.
  9. Remove air conditioning window units, or cover them to keep cold air outside.
  10. Keep radiators and registers free of dust for top efficiency.
