Heating costs can quickly get out of control during the cold winter months. You may already be saving money with
our Budget Pricing Plan, but by conserving propane, you may be able to save even more.
Here are some handy tips from Money Talks News.
Program the Thermostat – Constantly adjusting the heat increases your fuel usage. With a programmable thermostat, you can set your heat up to ten degrees lower during the day, when the house is empty. It’s a painless way to save propane without feeling chilly.
Reduce heat loss – Heat loss can be a huge culprit for high energy costs. There are plenty of ways you can keep the heat in. Caulk cracks and leaks, shrink wrap your windows, and close your fireplace damper when it’s not in use. You can also install a door sweep and close drapes tight to prevent drafts.
Insulate – There are plenty of spots in your home you may not even realize you should insulate. Your attic is probably insulated. But what about the door leading to it? Insulation inside and around it can stop heated air from rising to the attic. You can also insulate your water heater, electrical outlets, and basement.
