Lower Power Bills in the Winter
They call Florida the Sunshine State, and for good reason. For most of the year, we get to enjoy some of the nicest weather you'll find anywhere. There's no better place in the world to kick back on a beach or get in a nice round of golf. As anyone who actually lives in Jacksonville could tell you, though, the winters here can get seriously cold.
November is here, and already there's a bit of a chill in the air. As the temperature continues to drop, unsuspecting homeowners might just find their energy costs begin to skyrocket. Thanks to clean, efficient propane from your friends at Griffis Gas, though, you can stay toasty all winter long and save a little money for your holiday shopping, too.
It's no secret that power usage increases during the winter months. We're spending more time indoors since the weather is so cold and using more power to keep those heaters running. Not only that, water heaters have to work a little harder to produce the same amount of hot water. When you add it all together, people can see huge increases in their utility bills.
Luckily, there's a better choice. Propane is one the most efficient and affordable power sources in the world. Did you know that using a small space heater, plugged in continuously, can cost you more than $100 a month on your electric bill? At those prices, you might as well light money on fire to stay warm. Heating your house with clean, safe, affordable propane helps you save money while keeping your house warm and comfortable for the holiday season.
Electric water heaters are a huge money sink, especially during the winter months. By switching to propane, you can do your laundry, take hot showers, and run the dishwasher as much as you'd like without having to skip gift-giving this year. Propane is a more affordable option and making the switch will pay for itself.
