Ready to play the Heating Game?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Boston North West

Welcome to New England it's a common past time to see just how long you can wait to turn your heat on. With temeperatures in the morning hovering around 45 degrees many are caving. Since heating costs can take up a significant portion of your budget here are some things to consider:

 

Natural Gas: It appears prices are dropping due to an oversupply of inventory.

 

Oil: Do you lock in or not? That's hard to predict since prices at the gas stations have dropped in the last week.

 

Take advantage of the tax credit to add energy efficiency to your home that is older than 10 years old. Insulate and replace windows if needed.

 

Don't forget to get your furnaces serviced, there is nothing worse than having an issue in the dead of winter...

 

So.. how long are you going to wait or have you caved already? I'm still holding on..blankets and sweaters on hand.

Funny you should write about this now.  It's just what I've been going through the last few unseasonably cold days in New York.  I refuse to put the heat on, preferring to suffer :) instead, walking around in my robe over my clothes and sipping hot tea or hot chocolate.  Sometimes I even go out for awhile since it's often not as chilly outside as it is in.  But I won't cave to those money sucking utilities.  At least not yet. Brrrrrrr!!!!

Josh: I think summers in AZ are worse...but come mid-winter I'll probably be singing another tune...

Geri: Still no heat, I wonder if I can make it to Halloween. They are actually saying we may have snow this weekend, that better be a joke.
