Your How-To Guide To Save Money This Season.
Are you looking for ways to save money? It’s no secret that fuel prices are high, so it’s critical for families in Walnut Cove and the surrounding areas to find ways to save money heating their homes and powering their appliances. Hall has you covered with four tips to help you live in comfort all winter long.
- Only Heat Rooms You Plan to Use: You don’t have to heat every room in your home. By closing heating vents in guest rooms, central rooms with no outside wall and formal dining rooms, heat will distribute to the spaces you occupy the most.
- Replace Your Tank Water Heater with a Tankless Unit: Tankless water heaters cost more upfront but are more efficient and can save you money over time. Plus, you can enjoy constant hot water since tankless units never run out and only heat water when needed. Tank water heaters heat water 24/7, burning fuel even while you sleep.
- Install A Space Heater: Fuel oil and kerosene prices have risen to all-time highs! A vent-free propane heater might be just the thing to help lower heating costs. With a vent-free propane heater, you can supplement your home heating with a less expensive, more efficient and cleaner burning fuel. Both Blue Flame and Radiant vent-free heaters come equipped with a thermostat to help you control the temperature in your space and an Oxygen Depletion Sensor(ODS) to keep your family safe. Hall-qualified technicians can install the heater in your room, standing it on the floor or securely mounting it to the wall to provide you with years of safe heat that helps you live in comfort.
- Check Programs for Eligibility: Some programs assist homeowners and renters in paying heating bills. One example is the Low Income Energy Assistance Program in North Carolina, and another is the Energy Assistance Program through the Virginia Department of Social Services. Both programs have strict eligibility requirements but provide valuable services for individuals and families in our communities.
Other benefits to keep in mind include our Pre-Buy program. This program allows you to purchase fuel in August when rates are typically the lowest.
