Yet another oil delivery this morning, and the price is up to $3.99/gallon. $426.72 remains in my projected oil budget, I seriously fear that we will go over that and some with the next delivery. Granted, these are the coldest/worst months as far as heating oil goes. I've turned the thermostats down now to 55 at night, 63 during the day, and I am hunkering down by the wood stove.
I am certain also that something is amiss with the water thermostat (or whatever it is called) in the boiler as our water is scalding hot. I also know that the radiators need to be bleed and that is supposed to help with efficiency. I've changed all of the thermostats in the house, yet the L shaped porch registers seem to be coming on all the time. Could there be a problem with one of the "zone boxes" off of the boiler? I know little about boilers, just trying to figure out what is going on.
