home heating wyoming Winter has been a doozy here in the Yellowstone region. How is your home’s heating system holding up?

Great news for you! According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, homeowners who rely on propane for home heating may experience a significant drop of around 8% in their heating expenses.

Fall River Propane is dedicated to assisting you in reducing your heating expenses by offering valuable tips that will enable you to enjoy a cozy and comfortable winter without breaking the bank.

Make Your Thermostat Smarter

If your thermostat is not operating optimally, consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat. With a programmable thermostat, you can conveniently set lower temperatures when you are away, schedule the house to be warm upon your return, and even have the temperature lowered a few degrees overnight. This level of control and automation ensures optimal comfort and energy efficiency. Upgrading to a smart or programmable thermostat is a wise investment, as it has the potential to reduce your heating costs by up to 10%!

Use Our Payment Options

Between the holiday bills, taxes, and other expenses, keeping your household expenses under control is paramount. That’s where Fall River Propane’s payment options can help!

With our Level Pay plan, your propane costs are spread out over 12 easy monthly installments, rather than having to pay all of them during winter.

Our automatic payment option helps you prevent late fees by automatically making your monthly payment directly from your credit card, debit card, or checking account.

Avoid Runouts

Our Auto-Fill and wireless tank monitoring programs are two ways we can help to prevent you from running out of propane. Because if you run out of propane, not only will you be inconvenienced, but it’ll also cost you money.

In addition to the cost of an emergency propane delivery, you will also be charged for a required pressure test on your gas lines and for having a professional service technician re-light the pilots in all your propane appliances. This is an industry-wide practice to ensure systems are restarted and are functioning again safely.

Go Tankless for Low-Cost Hot Water

Fall River Propane provides expert propane tankless water heater installation and service. We install top-quality Rinnai tankless water heaters and will help you secure any rebates your new water heater qualifies for.

By upgrading to a propane tankless water heater, you can enjoy hot water without worrying about running out. When you turn on a faucet or appliance, the cold water comes into the water heater from your home’s water lines. Once there, the heat exchanger instantly heats the water, which is then sent where you need it for as long as you want it.

This can increase your energy efficiency by up to 40% and give you access to a continuous flow of hot water. This means no more waiting for your tank to refill and reheat. A tankless water heater can reduce standby energy losses that typically occur in storage-tank systems.

Unblock Your Heating System

To maximize the efficiency of your heating system, it is crucial to keep the area around forced air registers, baseboard heaters, or radiators unobstructed. When warm air becomes trapped, it puts additional strain on your heating system, causing it to work harder and longer. This, in turn, leads to increased energy consumption and higher costs. Prevent draperies, furniture, or any other objects from blocking these heating sources to optimize your heating system’s performance and save on energy expenses.

Get Rid of Drafts

To maintain warmth and maximize the efficiency of your heating system without breaking the bank, it’s crucial to address drafts in your home. Pay close attention to the base and edges of windows and doors, as these are common culprits for drafts. Ignoring drafts can result in a significant increase of up to 15% in your heating costs. By dedicating a few hours on a weekend to applying caulk and weatherstripping, you can effectively retain heat and keep the cold air out, creating a cozy and energy-efficient environment.
