Cook on the Grill
Propane gas grills and barbeques are an emblem of spring and summer in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Break out the Grill Master apron and cook outside, which will cut back on the propane used to power your gas stove and oven while you spend quality time with your family.
Boost Your Cooling System’s Efficiency
If you’ve already had your HVAC equipment’s annual tune-up, and you’re still not seeing the efficiency you’d like, consider upgrading to a newer system. New air conditioners will do the same job of cooling your home, increasing home comfort, and cleaning the air, but at a lower rate. These new, efficient models help you to save more energy (and money) during the summer season when you rely on them the most!

Take Advantage of Your Blinds & Curtains
During the hottest days of the year, keep your blinds and curtains drawn to prevent sunlight from warming your home’s temperature. This will help you reduce the need to crank up the A/C! Additionally, if there’s a chilly forecast ahead, leave your curtains and blinds open to soak in the warmth of the sunny day.
