Members of the Bermuda Gas team are here to help tackle a variety of issues in the monthly Bermuda Gas ‘How To’ column of the Bermuda Living supplement.

This month, sales manager David DeSilva gives advice on how to cut costs by using propane gas.

Switching to propane gas can reduce your energy costs by as much as 20%.

Let’s face it, in today’s economic climate, we are all looking for places to cut down or cut back.  At Bermuda Gas, we know that reducing energy costs, while maintaining a reliable power source, is important to everyone.  But did you know that making the switch to propane gas can trim down your monthly energy bill by as much as 20 percent? So while your energy cost goes down, you still have a reliable, efficient and cleaner burning fuel running your appliances.

Propane gas is non-toxic, so it is not harmful to soil or water.

What’s more, propane-powered appliances, such as water heaters, dryers, cook tops and ranges, can offer a genuine power-saving alternative! That’s because most gas appliances take less time to accomplish their task than their electric counterparts.  What does this mean for you?  Savings  – not only time but money as well.

A propane gas dryer can dry your clothes in three quarters of the time of an electric dryer!

Of course, initial price is only one of the considerations when buying a new appliance.  In addition to the purchase price, there is also the cost to operate the unit over its lifetime to take into account.  One thing I can promise you is that when you buy your appliance from Bermuda Gas there will be no nuisance charges related to the delivery of your new unit and the removal of your old one.   Unlike other companies, we don’t charge for these services – a saving of more than $100.  The switch to propane gas just became even easier.
