About PropaneFuel Saving Tips

Here are some Fuel Saving Tips that can Help Save You Money

  • Clean or change your furnace filter once a month during the heating season. Clean filters make your furnace operate more efficiently.
  • Close the damper on your unused fireplace or stove to prevent warm inside air escaping out up your chimney.
  • Install an automatic setback or programmable thermostat. These thermostats can be programmed to reduce the temperature while you are away or sleeping at night.
  • Lower your thermostat when away from home for more than a few hours.
  • Lower the thermostat on your water heater from the standard 140 degrees Fahrenheit if you don’t need it that hot.
  • Drain your propane water heater every 6 months or more to reduce energy robbing deposits which decrease efficiency.
  • Replace old or outdated appliances with higher efficient models.
  • Keep the lint filter on your propane dryer clean.
  • Close doors or dampers to rooms that are not being used.
  • Update windows and doors, replace ineffective weather stripping and increase insulation.
