You use dozens of gallons of hot water every day in your appliances and taps – a big reason why almost 20 percent of your monthly energy bill goes to heating water.
Here’s the problem: if you have a conventional water heater (one with a storage tank), you’re actually paying to heat even more water than that!
Most of us are looking for ways to simplify our lives these days, especially when it comes to our finances and bill paying. The good news is that we can help you do that with paperless electronic billing from Bottini Fuel.
Heating oil has been keeping Americans warm for more than a century – a testament to the simple effectiveness of the fuel compared to its alternatives. But how does heating oil stack up against other fuel sources when it comes to safety?
Heating oil tanks are built to last with minimal care and attention – but minimal doesn’t mean no care and attention. To make sure they run reliably year after year, they need a little TLC – especially in the offseason.
People sometimes ask, “Is a tune-up for my HVAC equipment necessary every year?”
The simple answer is…yes!
Propane is one of the most versatile sources of energy for your home, able to power everything from furnaces and fireplaces to whole house generators and cooking ranges. But it wouldn’t matter how versatile propane was if it didn’t also deliver great performance.
More than 9 out of 10 chefs working today choose to cook with gas – and if you’re serious about cooking in your Hudson Valley home, you’ll want to do it with propane.
When most people think of using propane at home, they think of heating season and their furnace or boiler. But propane is a year-round fuel: if you are a new propane homeowner – or plan to become one soon – you may be surprised at how much of it you use in the “offseason” months.
Propane has one of the safest track records of any home energy source – but like any fuel, you need to take precautions when using it, especially during severe weather.
As you probably know, a home cooling system typically accounts for more than half the energy we use at home during the summer – a number that could rise even higher this year with all the time we’re spending at home.
