The long-term price graph shows, the price of home N0. 2 Heating Oil has skyrocketed. In the short term, the forecasts about hurricane Dean have reversed the falling market into a raising market. And, this is just the start of the hurricane season. As I am writing this no storm damage has yet been done. These graphs, and more, are available on oilnergy.com.
My point is that if you heat with oil now is the time to be working on making your home more energy efficient.
Add insulation – do your detailed planning of the project now so you can get’er done before the cold weather.
Have your heating equipment checked by a pro now. Do not put it off. You will be able to get the help you need easily during the mild weather and if anything bad is discovered you will have time to fix it before the cold weather makes it a crisis.
Do the caulking and weather stripping chores while you have nice weather to work in.
If your doors need fixing or replacement, avoid the rush, do it now.
If you do not have a storm door think about adding it now so it can start paying you back now. A storm door with a quick-change screen is a joy when the comfortable fall weather is here. You can let all the fresh air in and still be able to drop the glass into place when it gets cold.
By finishing your preparation work early, you will not miss the fall football action.
