February has been New York’s coldest, snowiest month this winter, but that doesn’t mean warm weather isn’t right around the corner! Spring starts in about one month and it’s time to start preparing your house for the warmer weather. In addition to testing your air conditioning system to ensure it is working properly, you should consider the following conservation tips to help keep your energy bills down when the first big heat wave strikes.

Even with heating prices at their lowest point in five years, no one should have to choose between heat and food, or heat and rent. If you or someone you know may need help heating their home, protect yourself against a heating emergency with the federally-funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

New York City received its first snowfall earlier this week, and although there was minimal accumulation, we’d like to thank you in advance for clearing a path to your fill pipes when it snows. Clearing a path will allow New York’s heating oil providers to help more neighbors stay warm each day without the worry of slipping and injuring themselves. If you have a physical limitation and cannot clear a path, don’t worry – dealers will still refill your heating oil. If possible, place a flag or marker where your fill pipe is located so we can find it.

With today’s heating oil, your environmental footprint is smaller than ever. Heating oil produces near zero emissions into the atmosphere, and is so clean that it is not even regulated by the Federal Clean Air Act. To further lower the environmental impact of heating oil use, New York City mandates a 2% bioheat blend, which is made from renewable resources such as soybeans, other plants, algae and even recycled cooking oil. This blend is improving the city's air quality, increasing the energy-efficiency of heating equipment, and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
