Energy-Saving Tips in Central Vermont

Living in Central VT means experiencing all four seasons, as well as 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 Packard Fuels, we focus on offering our valued customers exceptional service at an affordable rate through our partner service technicians, but there are some additional things you can do to lower your annual heating costs and save energy.

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 Packard Fuels’ expert partners will help keep your heating system running at peak performance all season long. When your equipment is properly inspected and maintained, it can reduce the risk of surprise breakdowns and promote a higher fuel economy.


Consider a High-Efficiency Upgrade

If your system is more than 15 years old, you can significantly lower your heating bills by switching to a modernized, high-efficiency heating system. Upgraded heating systems operate more effectively and can save you money on costly repairs and component replacements.


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.
