Follow these great tips to reduce humidity in your home!
Now that summertime is well underway, humidity is worse than ever before. If your home isn’t properly insulated or ventilated, you may notice that your home has more moisture than usual. Your air conditioning unit can be a great tool to combat heat and manage humidity. Take a look at these great tips to make your AC unit eliminate humidity in your home.
1. Clean your air filter
Replacing your air filter every 90 days will help your AC unit function more efficiently. Overtime, the air filter can be covered in dirt and debris which prohibits the coil from eliminating heat and moisture in the air. As long as your air filter is clean, your evaporator coil should be able to function properly.
2. Adjust the fan speed
In order to remove humidity, we recommend adjusting your fan speed to a rate of 350 CFM per ton. Most systems are programmed to move air at a much faster rate than this which isn’t ideal for humidity removal. Lower fan speeds allow the coil to get colder, which in turn, removes more moisture from the air.
3. Purchase a thermal expansion valve
A thermal expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant that’s released to the evaporator section. Typically, these cost around $100-$500 dollars but are well worth the investment. It vastly improves the capacity of your evaporator coil and allows it to remove excess heat and humidity.
4. Purchase a dehumidifier
Using a dehumidifier along side your AC unit can significantly reduce humidity in the air. Together, they are powerful at eliminating excess moisture.

Stay ahead of the curve by preparing your furnace this summer!
During summertime, furnace maintenance may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Take a look at these tips to get your furnace ready for the colder months ahead.
1. Change the furnace filter
We recommend changing your furnace filter every 90 days. You should also replace the filters in your air ducts and HVAC system. By changing these filters regularly, your systems will run more efficiently.
2. Clean the blower motor
If there is something wrong with your blower motor, you may notice a humming sound coming from your furnace. Blower motors can easily be clogged with debris or drenched with moisture. It’s important to clean this motor and lubricate it as well to ensure that it’s working properly.
3. Clean the heat exchanger
You should hire a professional each year to clean your heat exchanger. The professional will turn off the unit, and clean the exchanger by brushing and vacuuming it out. This will prevent your furnace from getting clogged.
4. Inspect or replace your carbon monoxide detectors
Carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every 5 years. We recommend doing routine checkups on your carbon monoxide detectors to keep you and your family safe.
5. Perform a soundcheck
You should investigate your system for any strange noises such as rattling or banging. Before doing this, you should shut down all power to the unit and make sure the blower motor has stopped. If you still notice any of these strange noises you should call a professional for help.
These preventative maintenance tips can prepare you for the colder months ahead! Give us a call at (845) 513-3517. Our team is here to help you with any of your questions or concerns.
If you need maintenance on your heating oil system, give our team a call!
When performing routine maintenance on your heating oil system, you may encounter a build-up of a thick, black sludge in the fuel filter which is typically caused by bacteria that oxidize the fuel in your tank. Sludge can cause your heating oil system to break down and hinder its efficiency. To prevent sludge from building up within your tank, follow these great tips:
1. Routine Maintenance
We recommend implementing yearly routine maintenance. This includes replacing your tank’s heating oil filter and checking both the interior and exterior of the tank for any cracks, dents, or leaks.
2. Drain Your Tank
Over the years, sludge can buildup in your tank naturally. You may want to consider hiring a professional to drain the tank. Clearing out your tank will help save you money on future repairs and keep it in tip-top shape.
3. Fill Up Your Tank
Excess room within the tank causes condensation; speeding up sludge buildup and corrosion. Keeping your tank full can help combat this problem.
4. Find the Right Fuel Supplier
At Resnick Energy, we use fuel additives in our heating oil. This helps keep your heating oil system cleaner, running more efficiently, and can prevent sludge buildup.

Follow these tips to take care of your heating oil tank this summer!
During summertime, your heating oil system may not be the first thing that comes to mind. A heating oil tank is essential to ensure the temperature in your home is warm and comfortable. To extend your tank’s lifespan, we highly recommend following these quick and easy maintenance tips this summer:
1. Refill Your Tank
Warm temperatures and humidity can cause moisture to build up in your heating oil tank.
This can degrade the metal inside your tank, causing corrosion. We recommend filling up your tank this summer to eliminate any excess room for moisture and rust to form. Being proactive will save you the risk of having to repair or replace your tank!
2. Inspect Your Tank’s Surface
We recommend inspecting the surface of your heating oil tank. If you notice any signs of damage such as dents, cracks, rust or oil stains, you should contact a professional. Give our team a call! We offer 24-hour emergency service.
3. Be Aware of Leaks
Leaks in your tank aren’t always obvious to the eye. We recommend inspecting your tank’s vent lines, fittings, and valves periodically. If left unresolved, it can cause your tank to corrode. If you think your tank has a leak it’s important to call a professional for an inspection right away.
4. Inspect the Tank Legs
You’ll also want to ensure that your tank legs are stable. If you notice your tank wobbling, we recommend placing your tank on top of a level concrete pad.

We can help you conserve your fuel!
Are you interested in conserving heating oil, but aren’t sure where to start? There’s good news! Proper home and furnace maintenance can help conserve fuel and reduce your heating oil bill a generous amount. Take a look at these steps to help your furnace conserve heating oil.
1. Change Your Furnace Filter
A clogged filter can cause your furnace to work harder than usual, which will make it burn more heating oil. Replacing your furnace filter once a month will help your system run more efficiently. Not only will this help conserve heating oil but it can also help prevent dust, allergens, and bacteria from building up in the system and the air within your home.
2. Inspect Your Home’s Insulation
A large culprit behind your furnace burning more heating oil is poor insulation within your home. In order to preserve heating oil, we recommend inspecting your home for any cracks or air leaks. A simple way to solve this issue is by sealing leaks around your windows or doors with reasonably priced caulking.
3. Program Your Thermostat
Programming your thermostat can help prevent any major fluctuations in temperature. This will help conserve heating oil and save you a chunk of change on your next heating oil bill.
4. Check Air Ducts
Air ducts help transfer heat to different rooms within your home. If you notice there are certain rooms that are more difficult to heat, you may want to check your air ducts for a potential leak. You can seal this yourself by purchasing metal tape or by hiring a professional to take a look at it. This will prevent your furnace from burning excess heating oil.

We can help you determine whether or not your heating system needs a replacement!
A furnace replacement can come as a surprise. On average, furnaces last around 15-20 years after installation. Routine maintenance on your system can also prolong its lifespan. Although maintenance can extend your furnace’s longevity, we recommend replacing your furnace when it hits the 15-year mark. Do you think it’s time to replace your system? If you’ve noticed the signs below, it may be time to replace your furnace.
1. Loud Noises
If your furnace is producing loud noises during normal operation, it may be an indication there’s something wrong. Some common furnace noises you may hear are rattling, screeching, popping, humming, or booming. These different sounds can be caused by various issues like temperature fluctuations, loose ducts, a damaged motor or flame sensor, or a gas emission issue. If this occurs, we recommend calling a professional to take a look at your furnace.
2. Soot Buildup
If you notice soot building up in the furnace register, it could be a sign you’ll need a replacement. A register is what regulates the airflow from your furnace to your home. Soot buildup in the register can be a sign that your furnace is producing excess carbon dioxide. This is often accompanied by low moisture and dust in the air of your home.
3. Temperature Fluctuations
When a furnace is near the end of its lifespan, it may be more difficult to distribute heat evenly throughout the home. You will start to notice a drastic change in temperatures throughout different rooms in your home. If you experience this, it may be time for a replacement.
4. High Energy Bill
If you start receiving higher energy bills, it could be a sign that your furnace is working harder than normal. This is a common sign when a furnace requires a replacement.

At Resnick Energy, we offer our customers high quality heating oil, commercial fuels and kerosene at the most affordable prices.

Our team of experienced and dependable professionals are here to help. Check out our list of benefits of ordering kerosene from Resnick Energy.
1. Lower Gel Point
During the winter months in the North East, we often experience cold weather conditions. These lower temperatures can often make the heating oil in your tank thicken. When gelling occurs, it may cause a disruption to the flow of heating fuel going into your home heating system. Because kerosene has a higher viscosity and lower gel point than the average heating oil, your fuel won’t thicken or cause blockages in the tank.
2. It’s Efficient
Kerosene can warm your home faster than other fuels. That means you’ll be able to use it for shorter periods of time, making it more cost effective.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Kerosene is more refined than heating oil. Because it’s a cleaner fuel, it produces less pollution. Out of all the fossil fuels, kerosine is a great alternative if you want to burn fewer fumes.
4. Quick Delivery
At Resnick Energy, we offer same-day and next-day heating oil delivery to all of our customers. Have an emergency? We’ll deliver kerosene to your home or business within 24 hours.
