If your New Year’s Resolution is to save money, you’ll be glad to know your friends at Alger Oil & Propane can help. Mark your calendar with these energy-saving tips and see how much you can save this winter and beyond.


Chances are, you’re back at work now and in the 9-to-5 routine. While you’re earning your paycheck, you can also save money at home. By turning your thermostat down 7-10 degrees from its normal setting for the 8 hours you work, you could save up to 10 percent on your annual heating and cooling costs, and programmable thermostats can adjust for you automatically. They can be programmed to fit your schedule, capable of storing and repeating six or more temperature settings a day.


Valentine’s Day is in February and you can put aside a little extra for that special someone’s gift by simply letting sunlight shine through your home. Open up the blinds during the day and close them back up at night to keep the warm air in.


ENERGY STAR® estimates that 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through your duct system is lost due to leaks and poor ductwork, which can raise your utility bills and make it harder to keep your home comfortable. At Alger Oil & Propane we specialize in ductwork installations – we determine the heating and cooling loads of a building and then design a system to deliver the right amount of conditioned air. We also inspect, service and repair ductwork systems to help you stay comfortable and save.
