Whether you’ve lived in a propane-powered home for years or are new to this particular method of fueling, one thing all homeowners can benefit from is finding ways to lower your annual maintenance and upkeep costs. Here are some tips to help you save money while maintaining your propane-powered home.
1. Buy When It's Warm
Summer is the best time to purchase propane because demand is low, which means prices will be low, too. Keep an eye out for our summer programs and specials that let you lock in your rates early so you don’t have to worry about price increases later.
2. Improve Your Energy Efficiency
Make sure your house is air-tight and weatherized properly. Checking your insulation and replacing it is an investment that pays dividends when it prevents your systems from over-working to maintain the temperature. Another worthwhile investment could be upgrading to energy-efficient propane appliances, like going from an electric storage tank water heater to a tankless one.
3. Research Payment Options
It’s imperative that you find a payment option that works uniquely for you. At Gerner Energy, we offer monitored delivery options, budget billing plans, and plenty of other specials throughout the year to help reduce costs.
4. Look Into Appliance Rebates
Applying for appliance rebates is another great way for homeowners to save. Check to see if your state propane gas association has rebates available.
5. Choose The Right Propane Provider
The beauty of propane is that as a homeowner, you have the power to choose your own provider. Look for a company that can provide the right combination of service, experience, cost, and response time that works for you.
For example, if you’re the set-it-and-forget-it type, you may want to work with a provider that monitors tank levels and offers automatic refills. (Wait, we do that!)
There’s nothing better than finding ways to cut your annual costs as a homeowner. Luckily, there are plenty of options for those who live in propane-powered homes. Got any questions about any of our services or discounts? Contact us to learn more.
