Program Your Thermostat
Cutting back on air conditioning frequency can save you up to 10% on your annual home comfort bills. The easiest way to do so is by installing a programmable thermostat, allowing you to set it and forget it. Aim to give your A/C a break each day for 8 hours for the perfect balance of ultimate home comfort and smart energy savings.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Now that the days are longer and warmer, you can finally enjoy your time outdoors. Plus, you’ll be saving on those summer electricity costs. Make your time outdoors even more comfortable with reliable propane appliances, such as patio heaters, hot tub heaters, grills, fire pits, and more!
Cook on the Grill
Propane gas grills and barbeques are an emblem of spring and summer in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Break out the Grill Master apron and cook outside, which will cut back on the propane used to power your gas stove and oven along while you quality time with your family.
Boost Your Cooling System’s Efficiency
If you’ve already had your HVAC equipment’s annual tune-up and you’re still not seeing the efficiency you’d like, consider upgrading to a newer system. New air conditioners and water heaters will do the same job of cooling your home, increasing home comfort, and cleaning the air, but at a lower rate. These new, efficient models help you to save more energy (and money) during the summer season when you rely on them the most!
Take Advantage of Your Blinds and Curtains
During the hottest days of the year, keep your blinds and curtains drawn to prevent sunlight from warming your home’s temperature. This will help you reduce the need to crank up the A/C! Additionally, if there’s a chilly forecast ahead, leave your curtains and blinds open to soak in the warmth of the sunny day.
