As you probably know, a home cooling system typically accounts for more than half the energy we use at home during the summer – a number that could rise even higher this year with all the time we’re spending at home.
Most people with propane appliances use more gas in the winter than in the summer, since furnaces, fireplaces, and space heaters are heavy-duty fuel burners. But that doesn’t mean you won’t use propane during the summer months – in fact, you will probably use more than you think you will!
Keeping your heating equipment clean and properly maintained is probably not the first thing on your mind as we head into the hottest months of the year, but with things as unpredictable as they are right now, it’s a good idea to stay ahead of the curve on all things home comfort-related.
Air circulation is an important and often overlooked contributor to home comfort: properly moving air will help reduce dust accumulation, stabilize indoor temperatures, prevent mold growth, and even help you control humidity in your Hudson Valley home.
We’ve all spent way too much time indoors this year – but that’s about to change as summer arrives in northern NJ.
One question customers ask us every year is “why do heating oil prices change so much every year?” Good question!
Eventually, we will say good riddance to heating season 2019-20, and your heating system will finally be able to take a breather for a few months.

If you have recently purchased a home in the Hudson Valley that is powered by propane, but haven’t gotten around scheduling your first propane delivery, you may be in for a surprise when you try to order your fuel.
As if COVID-19 wasn’t enough, spring allergies haven’t exactly given people with respiratory issues a break so far this spring in the Hudson Valley.
Life is complicated enough these days without having to deal with watching your fuel gauge, having to remember when it’s time for heating maintenance, and wondering how much your next heating oil or propane bill is going to cost.
