It is easy to overlook the energy-saving potential of a thermostat. The thermostat can be a big energy waster or a big energy saver, depending on how you use it. Alger Oil & Propane installs programmable thermostats that can reduce your energy consumption by 10 percent without any compromise in your comfort.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save as much as 10 percent a year on your heating and cooling bills by simply turning the thermostat back 7° to 10° for 8 hours. And you don't even have to remember to do so - it can be done automatically without sacrificing comfort by installing a programmable thermostat.

Using a programmable thermostat - also called an automatic setback, day/night or clock thermostat - you can adjust the times you turn on the heating or air-conditioning according to a pre-set schedule. As a result, the equipment doesn't operate as much when you're asleep or when the house or part of the house is not occupied. Programmable thermostats can store and repeat multiple daily settings (six or more temperature settings a day) that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program. 

The latest innovation in comfort control technology is the Wi-Fi enabled thermostat. Through an internet connection, you can remotely control your heating or air conditioning system from anywhere you go. Wi-Fi thermostats give you more direct control over your home comfort equipment than standard programmable thermostats, allowing you to make adjustments as they're needed using a comprehensive mobile app that connects you directly to your home's comfort controls. To schedule the installation of your Wi-Fi or programmable thermostat, please call Alger Oil & Propane at 610-932-4104 or 410-778-0600 or contact us.

36c7e96ce7c98d46cc260ebdaa408e22_f59.pngDuctless mini-split systems are capable of handling both your home heating and cooling needs. They excel at both supplementing your existing home comfort systems, and as a standalone solution. These sleek and efficient systems also provide a new level of temperature control, allowing homeowners to adjust individual indoor units separately using paired remotes, or even their smartphones.

What’s more, these systems don’t require the bulky ductwork found with most central air conditioning systems. This reduces installation time, and the amount of renovations involved with the install.
