harsh winter. The heating oil

industry's Energy

recommendations to save

energy and lower heating

costs:

and doors with caulking.

weather-resistant plastic

sheathing.

3. Insulate your attic.

4. Wrap exposed pipes with

proper insulation.

5. Replace manual

thermostats with a

programmable model and

lower temperatures while at

work or sleeping.

6. Open shades and drapes

whent he sun is out to help

warm your home, and close

them when the sun goes

down to reduce heat loss.

7. Eliminate gaps between

your door and threshhold by

adding a seal to the bottom of

the door.

8. Close your kitchen vents,

fireplace damper, and closet

doors, and remove or cover air

conditioners when not in use.

9. Move furniture away from

heating elements; it can block

heat from circulating.

10. Remember that hot water

uses fuel too. Try to reduce

consumption.
