Summer is the season of propane-fueled grills, so it’s important to know how to store and transport propane cylinders to ensure a proper and safe environment for your family and friends. Here are four important things to keep in mind when storing or transporting your propane cylinder:

Summer is hot enough without having tempers flare among family members over the temperature inside your home. Central air conditioners are great for keeping your home at an even temperature, and keeping the family peace talks going.

When summer rolls around, is your air conditioning equipment going to be ready to keep up with you? When you enroll in an air conditioning service plan from Alger, you can be put the worry of expensive repairs or system breakdowns out of your mind.

Having Alger evaluate your air conditioning system can save you money, and there’s no better time to do it than before the summer rolls in.

Service Plans Offer Smart Protection

admin December 21, 2016

As winter descends, your heating equipment is put to the test. Make sure that it is working properly and that you are protected from expensive repairs, with a heating service plan from Alger Oil & Propane.

Propane prices have come down as energy production in the United States has surged, and people are using this highly versatile fuel in more ways around their homes. Here are 12 great things you can do with propane, including some you might not have considered.

You’ve protected your home and your home comfort with a professionally installed emergency backup generator. But are you sure you know all you need to know to run your generator as safely as possible? As always, the best safety tip is to know as much as possible before an emergency arises.

If you have not already chosen automatic delivery for your heating oil or propane, we strongly recommend that you call Alger Oil & Propane today and make the switch. Automatic delivery is a service with lots of “pros” and only one “con.”

Winter may not be on your mind while you are lounging on the beach, but don’t let the cold weather creep up on you! Even last year’s unseasonably mild winter can be quite taxing on your heating system. That’s why at Alger Energy, we recommend scheduling your heating system tune-up today before temperatures fall and our schedule fills up!

As of July 1, 2016, all heating oil sold in our state can contain no more than 500 parts-per-million (ppm) sulfur. The sulfur limit of Maryland’s heating oil was first set in November of 2014 at 2,000 ppm, so this latest standard represents a 75% reduction from the previous level.

As a full-service energy and comfort provider, Alger Oil & Propane offers separate service plans for heating and air conditioning systems, as well as a budget plan that helps keep your heating oil or propane costs even from month to month.

You don’t have to accept poor indoor air quality! Turn your home’s indoor air into pure and refreshing atmosphere that will put you, your family and your guests at ease.

Today is all about fresh starts. With a new site, a new blog and a new spring season to look forward to, it’s time to take a second look at something that isn’t new: the old air conditioning system you’ve been relying on for years. How is yours holding up?
