  • The occupants, their energy usage and energy decisions. One of these decisions is investing in a smart programmable thermostat. When used correctly, it will pay for itself in just a short time. When you have a Wi-Fi thermostat, you can control your home’s temperature from your smartphone—anytime and anywhere.
  • The mechanical systems, which include the heating and cooling systems. To learn more about how you can positively impact your home’s energy efficiency through upgrades to mechanical systems like heating oil boilers, heating oil furnaces and heating oil storage tanks—and save a lot of money too—read on.

These generous equipment rebates are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the savings and peace of mind you’ll enjoy by upgrading to a modern heating oil system and storage tank.

Today’s oil boilers and oil furnaces are compact, smart and super-efficient and can save you, on average, 20% or more on your annual heating costs. There are many different equipment options to fit your budget.

Energy-efficient equipment can be installed with the latest technologically advanced controls to use only as much fuel as needed to heat your home or a specific part of your home.

New aboveground oil tank takes away your worries

In terms of oil storage tanks, as a general rule of thumb, if your fuel storage tank is more than 30 years old, you should consider replacing it.

Today’s aboveground fuel storage tanks are light-years ahead of old models because they are virtually leak-proof and have features that include:

  • sleek designs
  • double-wall construction that includes an outer tank of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel
  • leak-detection system
  • long-term warranties

Here’s another great feature: Modern aboveground tanks generally can be installed in small or unusually shaped spaces.
