If you’re one of the fortunate ones, you have the ability to work at home remotely. But what are you doing with all your free time—assuming you have that much at all, especially if you’re a parent.
But we would like to make a few suggestions for your “to-do” list since it will put you in a much stronger position when the fall season returns again. And for the most part, it won’t take up too much of your time.
Now is a perfect time to take care of the annual maintenance that’s recommended for your home heating system. Annual maintenance on your heating system helps to maximize operating efficiency, improve your home’s comfort level, helps to prevent breakdowns and can save you money on fuel.
A summer tune-up also allows your HVAC technician to detect and fix minor problems before they get the chance to turn into expensive and inconvenient repairs over the winter. And don’t worry about getting a heating tune-up early; it doesn’t “wear off.”
This will protect your tank and heating equipment. When your tank is partially or nearly empty in the warm weather, it is very common for condensation to form inside the tank wall. This condensation can cause sludge to collect at the bottom of your tank, and sludge is bad for your heating system—in fact, it’s one of the top reasons for breakdowns.
If you’re not on automatic delivery, please call us to request your summer fill-up. It usually makes sense to get your tank filled during the off-season anyway. With prices so low right now, why not take advantage and save money on fuel before prices start rising in the fall?
Enroll in the Resnick Energy Budget Plan and your monthly heating oil payments will be spread out throughout the year.
You know how much you’ll be paying each month for your heating oil, so you can more easily set up your household budget. There is no cost to enroll and no deadline for enrollment. You can either adjust for time or condense your payments to catch up. And, you can combine our budget payment plan with our Smart Cap Budget Plan for even more control of your heating oil bills!
Do an evaluation of your home and identify any defects, like poorly insulated areas, so you can start in on making repairs. It may be as simple as adding a new layer of caulk or putting in new weather-stripping. Keeping the warm air inside during winter and the hot air out during the summer can really make a big difference in your energy bills.

Amongst these tips, we do want to remind you that as the COVID-19 outbreak continues, our equipment service technicians are not performing new tune-ups at this time. However, we expect a surge in demand in the early summer as the situation subsides.
Also, be sure to check our COVID-19 page for updates and follow us on Facebook for the very latest so you can schedule your furnace or boiler tune-up as soon as our tune-up service resumes.
