Living in Rhode Island means residing in a four-season region with long winters. Staying within your home comfort budget can be a challenge if you don’t take the proper steps and precautions to make sure your heating equipment is maintained and operating at peak efficiency. At SmithCo Oil, we strive to offer our valued customers exceptional service at an affordable rate, but there are some things you can do to lower your annual heating costs and save energy.

Energy Saving Tips

Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up

If your current heating system hasn’t received maintenance in a while, there’s a good chance that it’s not running at peak efficiency. Regular maintenance from SmithCo Oil’s HVAC experts will help your heating system run at peak efficiency all season. When your equipment is properly inspected and maintained, it can reduce the risk of surprise breakdowns and promote higher fuel economy.


Consider a High-Efficiency Upgrade

How old is your current heating equipment? If your system is more than fifteen-years-old, you can significantly lower your heating bills by switching to a modernized heating system. Updated heating systems operate more effectively and can save you money on costly repairs and component replacements.


Sign Up for Protection

Get more security with a heating service plan. Enrolling in a service plan is the best way to guarantee safe, efficient operation of your heating system and to save money down the road. Our service plans include important maintenance items and processes for your heating equipment that will help you save on heating bills, conserve energy, and improve your home comfort.


Install a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are easy to use and can help cut energy costs. Simply program your thermostat to lower the temperature when you are out of the house or at night. Wi-Fi thermostats can be synced to your smart device to provide remote control of inside temperatures, wherever you are.
