Summer is coming to a close here in New Hampshire. Are you starting to get your home ready for the fall and winter months? Add these must-do tips to your fall checklist to help lower your heating bills and save energy through the seasons.
Step 1: Connect with Your Home Comfort Provider
Contact your local New Hampshire HVAC company to make adjustments to significantly reduce your home energy bills.
Schedule Your Annual Heating Tune-Up
Did you know that one yearly visit from your heating system specialist can lower your oil or gas heating bills by up to 10%? This happens because during the boiler or furnace tune-up, your HVAC service technician will perform a safety inspection, complete routine cleaning, and evaluate operating efficiency. If necessary, they will make recommendations for any part replacements. This will ensure that your boiler or furnace is running smoothly.
Consider an HVAC Upgrade
How old is your current boiler or furnace? If your heating system is 15 years or older, it makes sense to upgrade to a new high-efficiency heating system. High-efficiency heating equipment requires significantly less fuel to produce higher levels of comfort. When you upgrade, you’ll benefit from consistently lower energy use for years to come.
Sign up for an HVAC Service Plan
Patriot Heating & Cooling is pleased to offer comprehensive Comfort Plans for gas and oil heating equipment.

When you are signed up for a Comfort Plan, your heating equipment is likely to run much more efficiently.
Step 2: Save Energy in Your Home Every Day
There are several ways you can lower your daily energy use by making small changes to your routine:
Wash loads of laundry in cold water
Seal drafts around windows and doors
Lower your thermostat when you are away or asleep
Keep curtains open on sunny days
