I saved a ton of money on oil usage…
Rather than getting a new boiler I just upgraded the burner. By changing my non retention burner to a new retention burner head it cost me a lot less and increased my efficiency HUGE. I was a lot warmer and I used a lot less fuel. Here’s a few things I did…
- Do a energy audit so you can button up your home and keep the heat in and the cold out. I offer a do it your self version energy audit in the 87 tip section.
- Lower your hot water temperature, I suggest bringing it down to 120 degrees. You won’t notice a difference & you’ll see savings fast. See water heater savings tips.

3 Top questions you need to be asking your service tech when they are working on your system so you look like you know what you’re talking about… they realize they can’t screw up or do a poor job.
(I’ve included a video of a tune up done properly with all the details in the resource section.)
1.) Was the chimney base repaired or cleaned?
This tends to be a dirty job. Lots of techs forget on purpose. Your chimney & your smoke pipe get filled up & don’t work properly.
It’s dangerous for you & part of the process that needs to get done.
2.) How does the furnace combustion chamber look? Any cracks?
This tells the tech you know what your talking about. He’ll do a better job checking it. It’ll be safer for you (no dangerous fumes)
plus it’ll make it more efficient.
3.) Are all the seams in the smoke pipe sealed and is the heat exchanger cleaned really well?
This reminds him to be detailed. A small amount of soot can kill your efficiency so the cleaner the exchanger the better for you.
