Energy Efficiency Tips:
1. Change your filter
Change your furnace filter monthly. Inspect and tune-up your residential heating systems regularly. A heating system that is running well is more efficient.
2. Block drafts
Protect against drafts by caulking and weather stripping around windows, doors, and any other openings
3. Set a timer
Invest in a furnace thermostat timer that will lower your heat when you are not home. Turning your furnace down by 10 to 15 percent for eight hours a day can reduce your annual heating bill by as much as 10 percent each year.
4. Convert your water heater
If you currently use an electric water heater, you should consider converting to propane equipment. Over time, propane water heaters can cost up to 1/3 less to operate and recover hot water twice as fast as electric heaters.
5. Load up appliances
Run washing machines, clothes dryers and dishwashers with a full load.
6. Check the temperature
Turn down your water heater from the standard 120 degrees.
Propane Safety Tips
What does propane smell like?
Propane has a strong, unpleasant smell like rotten eggs, a skunk’s spray, or a dead animal. Manufacturers add the smell deliberately to help alert customers to propane leaks, which can create a safety hazard.
When you see flames or suspect a gas leak:
1. Extinguish flames
Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames. Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones. Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion or a fire.
2. Leave the Area
Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking.
3. Shut off the gas
Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank, if it is safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).
4. Report the leak
From a neighbor’s home or other nearby building away from the gas leak, call your propane retailer right away. If you can’t reach your retailer, call 911 or your local fire department.
5. Do not return to the building or area
Your propane retailer will determine when it is safe to do so.
6. Get your system checked
Before you attempt to use any of your propane appliances, your propane retailer or a qualified service technician must check your entire system to ensure that it is leak-free.
