How to Prepare Your Propane-Heated Home for Winter, Connersville, Indiana

To make it through the long, cold winter, you need a propane tank you can rely on. Before the temperatures drop, take time to perform a few vital maintenance steps. The following guide will help improve energy efficiency and comfort all winter long.

3 Tips to Get Your Propane Heat Ready for the Cold

1. Refill Your Tank

Fall offers an ideal time to refill your tank just before chillier temperatures onset. Check your propane levels and top them off to avoid any unexpected shortages in the months to come. During the visit, you may also want to schedule a refill for later in the season. If you expect to need more propane based on your home’s usage levels, making the appointment today will ensure you don’t forget; it will also guarantee that you secure a time slot during the busiest time of year for fuel delivery companies. In general, automatic refills can reduce stress and make life easier. 

2. Install a Programmable Thermostat

These devices only run at specific times, so you don’t have to worry about wasting money when you forget to change the settings. When you install a wireless digital device, you will also be able to adjust settings from anywhere—whether you’re on vacation or at work. If you don’t already have one, you may want to enlist a professional to install a programmable thermostat today. 

3. Schedule an Inspection

No one wants to endure a furnace or HVAC breakdown during the cold winter months. To avoid issues, enlist a technician to inspect your system and perform any necessary maintenance or repairs. A properly functioning, efficient system will also help you conserve energy in the months ahead.
