However, as the price of home heating oil is soaring up, it is not surprising that many of us are worried about our wallet getting drained. Therefore, this article has been written specifically for you so that you dont have to suffer from cold this winter or even have to suffer from a hole I your wallet. Just by following some simple rules at home, you can minimize the cost related to heating oil for your home. The very first thing you should do is get idea on your heating system. It is crucial for you to know how to check the oil level so that you are well aware of when your oil is close to needing new batch of oils. By checking the level of oil, you will also have idea on how much your family consumes and how much you might need in between refills. Depending on the change in season, your usage rate might dip and spike. However, checking the oil level will help you to get idea on your usage if you track so over some periods. After this, you need to compare the prices offered by the dealers in your locality. Some of the dealers come up with lucrative offers such as discount for paying with a credit card, discount if a certain amount is purchased in bulk etc. You can even ask for contracts through which you can lock a price for your oil for winter. These types of contracts are done in warmer seasons when the demand for oil is lower. There are also negotiating cap bill through which you will only be required to pay up to some limit and if you ever cross that limit then you will not have o pay the excess amount. You can also try to consume less heating oil by checking around your home for small wastages of energy. Check the windows and doors for leaks as warm air can escape through those leaky pockets. Cheap caulking can help you fix this problem. Make sure that you home is following the right insulation codes. When your room is unoccupied, lower the temperature in the thermostat to save energy. Also check whether you need to keep the heater on during day time. If not then turn it off during day time. http://youtu.be/Q_ZCbWeDhX4
