You don’t have to turn your heat down so low a polar bear would feel at home just to conserve energy and save on your heating bills this winter. Instead, follow these eight great Poore’s Propane approved energy saving tips!

Tip #1 – Invest in a new, high-efficiency water heater, which can provide you virtually endless hot showers at a lower cost to operate than your old, low-efficiency unit. We sell and service water heaters from leading manufacturers, Rinnai and Rheem.

Tip #2 – Check for air leaks around windows and doors, and repair weather stripping and caulking.

Tip #3 – Wrap your pipes to prevent them from freezing.

Tip #4 – Check for gaps between your threshold and the door, and use a bottom seal that can be attached to the bottom of the door to stop draft.

Tip #5 – If you have cracked glass in your windows, replace it to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

Tip #6 – Check that your ceiling has at least half a foot of thermal insulation.

Tip #7 – Avoid space heaters, as they’re expensive and dangerous to operate.

Tip #8 – Install a water heater blanket to improve heating efficiency.
