deliveries will be made when a delivery truck is in the
area running a normal route. Will Call customers
must call when their tank is no less than 20%. this

trip or if you run out of propane, there will be extra
charges added above the price of the propane delivered.

on weekends, or holidays should you need it. Please
be aware that unscheduled deliveries are subject to

and cooling bills by simply turning your thermostat back
10 percent to 15 percent for eight hours. Clean or replace
filters on furnaces once a month or as needed. Clean
warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators
as needed; make sure they’re not blocked by furniture,
carpeting, or drapes. Use kitchen, bath, and other ventilating
fans wisely; in just 60 minutes, these fans can pull
out a houseful of warmed or cooled air. Turn fans off
as soon as they have done the job.
Repair leaky faucets promptly; a leaky faucet wastes
gallons of water in a short period.
Insulate your hot-water storage tank and pipes, but
be careful not to cover the thermostat. With a propane,
natural gas, or oil water heater, be careful not to
cover the water heater’s top, bottom, or burner
compartment; when in doubt, get professional help

ignition saves gas—because a pilot light is not
Be sure that all burners are burning with a blue, cone-shaped

or burners that need adjustment. Contact a propane
retailer’s service department immediately if
you do not see a blue flame.
Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will
reflect the heat better, and you will save energy.
Make sure the refrigerator door seals are airtight.
Test them by closing the door over a piece of paper
or a dollar bill so it is half in and half out of the
refrigerator. If you can pull the paper or bill out
easily, the latch may need adjustment or the seal may
Look for the ENERGY STAR® and EnergyGuide labels
when buying appliances. ENERGY STAR® is a program
of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) designed to help consumers
identify energy-efficient appliances and products.
The bright yellow EnergyGuide sticker will tell you
how much it will cost to run the water heater for one
year. Propane water heaters cost a third less to operate
than electric models.
