How to Keep Your Budget Low in the Face of Increasing Energy Prices
It's been a long time since we've seen positive headlines about energy prices, and many Hudson Valley residents may feel like there's not much they can do in response to rapidly rising costs.
As a family-run business, Depew Energy is committed to helping customers keep their energy costs as low as possible this season. Oil and propane costs are increasing because of market volatility, and the reality is that prices are going to go even higher.
Now more than ever, it's important to lock in your prices through Depew Energy's capped price program. It's a win-win for customers who sign up early: you'll lock in a maximum price for your heating oil at the beginning of the season and your heating oil won't ever go above that price. But if heating oil prices drop, so will the price you pay.
On top of that, Depew Energy leaders acknowledge that rising costs are hurting everyone, so they are encouraging customers who have questions or need help to give them a call at 845-568-0072 to review possible solutions. Their goal is to keep your energy prices as stable as possible, and you can rest assured that you'll reach a local, friendly representative when you call.
On a smaller scale, Depew Energy has some tips to reduce your household energy consumption:
- Keep up with maintenance so your HVAC system and other fuel-operated appliances run as efficiently as possible.
- Reduce your water heater's thermostat to 120 degrees.
- Consider upgrading to high-efficiency equipment. It can have a bigger effect on energy costs than you might think — up to 40 percent with a new water heater.
