6 Tips From Simple Energy NH
1. Get Your System Serviced – Before you start using your heating system daily you want to schedule an appointment to get your system serviced. Having your heating system serviced annually helps ensure that it runs as efficiently as possible.
2. Understand Your Payment Options – Heating your home can be expensive. Simple Energy offers customers the opportunity to plan for the winter season and decide how they want to pay.
- Retail Pricing – You will be billed the current oil or propane rates at the time of delivery.
- Pre-Buy – Lock in fuel prices for the entire heating season at the lowest price available. Pay upfront for the gallons you need.
- Budget – Lock in a rate for the fuel you need and spread payments over a 12 month period (June-May).
- Downside Protection – You have the option to pay for downside protection. If you opt for this and the market fuel rate is lower then the rate you locked in on the day of delivery you pay the lower market price.
Contact Simple Energy for more details on their payment plans.
3. Set-Up Auto Delivery – Take the worry out of winter by signing up for auto-delivery. Simple Energy will automatically come to your home and fill your oil and propane tanks without you having to call and request a fill up.
4. Ask About Tax Credits for Heating System Updates – There are still some tax updates available for updating to new energy efficient heating systems. If you are considering upgrading your heating system make sure you do your research and talk to Simple Energy about what tax credits may be available to you.
5. Take Your Thermostat on the Road – Simple Energy offers Honeywell RedLINK thermostats that allow you to adjust the thermostats in your home from you smartphone or home computer. Never come home from work to a cold house again. You can adjust the temperature from anywhere!
6. Keep the Temperature Consistent – We all want to be as efficient as possible with our home heating fuel. One way to make sure you get the most from your heating fuel is to avoid frequently adjusting the temperature on your thermostat. Adjusting the temp up and down makes your system work harder to keep up. Maintain a steady temp as much as possible.
