Fuel Up Cape Cod – Keeping Our Neighbors Warm
A collection of fuel providers and charity organizers here on Cape Cod are teaming up to help keep those in need safe and warm this winter. Snow’s Fuel Company, Falmouth Energy, and Cape Cod Oil Company are working with the Lower Cape Outreach Council and the Needy Fund to learn who needs a little extra help with their fuel deliveries this season. This community service project collects funds from generous donors like you, allocates them to families in need, and pays fuel providers to make deliveries to the homes in need.
We’re thrilled for this opportunity to help keep our neighbors warm, and hope that you feel the same excitement. You can learn more about the charity initiative and consider making a donation (no amount is too small!) at FuelUpCapeCod.com. Together, we can make a big difference when it comes to helping local families in need.
Energy-Saving Tips for Winter on the Cape
Unpredictable fuel prices lately have left everyone thinking about how to save a little extra on winter heating. Check out these tips for some specific measures you can take to really make your heating dollars go the distance this season.
Install a programmable thermostat
Wi-Fi thermostats are little devices that can deliver big energy savings. Program your thermostat to automatically lower while you are asleep or out of the house, so you are only using heating fuel when you need it.
Don’t forget about the fireplace
If you have a wood-burning fireplace, your chimney can be a culprit for unseen drafts. Always keep your fireplace damper closed unless you are burning a fire.
Book your heating tune-up
If you haven’t already, there’s still time to book an annual tune-up for your boiler or furnace. Annual maintenance from your Snow’s HVAC technician can significantly lower your oil or propane heating bills, boost system efficiency, and prevent minor issues from becoming major ones down the road.

Seal air leaks and drafts
Check windows and doors for any air leaks or drafts. If you find any, seal them up with weather-stripping to prevent precious heat from escaping outside.
Upgrade to high-efficiency equipment
Heating technology is constantly improving. A new high-efficiency oil boiler or propane furnace will use your fuel more efficiently, help reduce your carbon footprint, and will be less likely to break down and need emergency repair.
