New Year’s Home Efficiency and Comfort Resolutions for 2019

Cup of coffee 2019

The New Year has arrived here in Buffalo and Rochester (and everywhere else, for that matter), and with it come this year’s round of resolutions. Why not make a few that will make your home life easier, safer, and more comfortable?

Here are six home comfort resolutions to make and keep for 2019:

  1. Buy with your conscience and values – When it comes to finding a propane supplier in Western NY State, you have many options – but only one is a certified Women and Minority Business Enterprise: Irish Propane.
  2. Treat yourself – There is nothing better than sitting by a cozy propane hearth – except possibly soaking in your propane-heated pool or spa. If you dream of making your home a comfy, cozy castle, propane can make it happen in 2019.
  3. Recycle – Has your property become a graveyard for old propane cylinders? Contact us for propane tank disposal and reclaim your yard space.
  4. Get energy smart – Commit to simple lifestyle changes that will make a big difference in your home energy bills. A few ideas:
    • Swap your incandescent light bulbs for LEDs
    • Use your programmable thermostat to drop temps six to eight degrees at night, or when no one is home; this could save you more than 10 percent on your energy bills.
    • Install low-flow showerheads – Did you know that water heating accounts for about one-fifth of your energy use? Installing low flow fixtures could cut hot water use in half in your showers, bath, and sinks.
    • Invest in insulation for your unconditioned spaces (attics, crawl spaces, etc.) and weatherization measures (caulking, weather stripping, and door sweeps) for your windows and doors.
  5. Commit to safety – If you don’t have carbon monoxide detectors installed at every level of your home, do it right away – these inexpensive fail-safes provide peace of mind, and could even save a life. Also consider installing propane leak detectors to prevent risks associated with propane odor loss – and be sure to review safety procedures with loved ones if you power your home with propane.

Save money and enjoy more peace of mind in 2019 – contact Irish Propane today for reliable propane deliveries for your home or business – always at fair and honest prices!
