New Year’s Resolutions – Irish Propane Edition

propane resolutions

Can you believe it’s 2020? Neither can we. But ready or not, a new decade has dawned, and we here at Irish Propane are ready to go with reliable propane deliveries that will keep your family safe and warm and your business on the go!

What can you do to make this a home comfort year to remember? Here are some ideas that will save you money, help your equipment run better, and up the fun factor in your Buffalo- or Rochester-area home in the year ahead.

  1. Get to know your thermostat – Managing the temperature in your home is about the easiest way we know to shave 10 percent off your annual heating and cooling bill. Just set and forget your programmable thermostat so it drops temps by 7-10 degrees at night and when you’re away from home.
  2. Stay on top of your air filters – Replace the air filters on your HVAC system and you’ll enjoy lower bills, spend less on equipment repairs and maintenance, and breathe a little easier at home. Set a reminder to check your air filters at least once a month during peak cooling and heating seasons, changing or cleaning them when needed.
  3. Make it automatic – Save time, a stamp, storage space, and maybe even a tree when you sign up for autopay from Irish propane. We’ll deduct your bill from your bank account via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)—about the safest and fastest way to pay your bills. We’ll send your statements by email—you can always view your bill online and print it whenever you’d like.
  4. Get predictable – Stressed by the ups and downs of your heating bill? Sign up for our budget payment plan and stretch those payments out over the course of a full year, with no financing charges. You’ll have the same predictable bill for your propane deliveries month after month.
  5. Go all in on propane – Whether you want to come home to a cozy fireplace this winter, swim in a heated pool next summer, or have protection from power outages all year long, powerful and super-efficient propane-powered appliances can deliver the home comfort, safety, and security you need.
  6. Up the efficiency ante – Want to drop your energy bills and shrink your carbon footprint? Commit to making your home more energy efficient in 2020! Some small and easy ideas include:
    • Replacing your aerators and showerheads with low-flow versions to cut down your hot water use.
    • Replacing incandescent and fluorescent bulbs with LEDs
    • Re-caulking and weather stripping windows to reduce drafts
    • Lower your water heater thermostat temperature to 120°

    You can find more energy saving ideas on the U.S. Department of Energy website.

  7. Maintain and upgrade your equipment – Professional annual maintenance is the key to keeping your propane equipment running safely and efficiently year after year. Once your home heating equipment needs to be replaced, don’t hesitate to upgrade – the move will often pay for itself in just a few years, and provide more comfort and peace of mind along the way.
