Here are a few do-it-yourself tips to save you some dough before the cold comes that are well worth the effort:
Set your Thermostat – Setting a morning, daytime and nighttime temperature on your programmable thermostat before the season will ensure that you don’t have to think about it again. Keeping your home a little cooler when you’re not home can result in hundreds of dollars in fuel savings. When you are toasty under the covers at night, this is also a time to drop the temp by a few degrees and save some money. Plus, research shows it’s healthier to sleep in a cooler environment.
Shine On – This time of the year the sun can be your friend and is a natural heater. Open those blinds and let it shine. The natural warmth of the rays will help cut down the stress on your system and save energy costs.
Winterize and Weatherize – Now is the time to plug those air leaks and clog up those drafty areas. With the cold air coming, it’s important to seal off any sources of heat loss. You can find simple solutions at the local hardware store like insulation, caulking, weather-stripping and draft stoppers.
Make that Service Call – The best preventive maintenance to keeping your heating system and propane fueled appliances running efficiently is to schedule your yearly check to make sure they are operating at their peak. We want to keep you and your family safe and sound, so we will check for any irregularities.
Upgrade and Save with New Appliances – The technology of today means your propane appliances and boiler can run more efficiently than ever. The cost of keeping an older appliance or boiler may just not be worth it anymore when you consider the fuel savings. We have plenty of options available, so contact us today to find out what we recommend.
