POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- As the cooler weather slowly returns, it's almost time to turn off the AC and break out the blankets. While energy bills usually begin to increase this time of year, Pound Ridge-based, Marshall Oil Company is helping customers stay warm and comfortable without breaking the bank.

Marshall Oil provides customers with heating equipment, fuel oil tanks, hot water boilers and everything else needed to avoid the autumn chill. To ensure homeowners save the most on their heating bill each month, follow these tips to begin the transition to fall. 

Take advantage of the sun. The heat from the sun is a great, natural heater and one that can be used all day long. Opening window curtains during the day allows sunlight to naturally heat the home and closing them at night helps reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows. 

Adjust the temperature. When you are home and awake, set your thermostat to a comfortable temperature. However, when you are asleep or out of the house, turn your thermostat back a few degrees as this can end up saving hundreds on your heating and cooling bills.

Maintain your heating systems. Schedule service for your heating system to find out what maintenance is required to keep your heating system operating efficiently. Marshall Oil offers 24-hour emergency assistance and can properly maintain all heating equipment when needed.

Keep the hot water to a minimum. Water heating accounts for about 18 percent of the energy consumed in the average home. If possible, avoid the long, hot showers. This will pay off in a big way when the heating bill arrives.
