If you are already using a propane range, then Bottini Fuel would like to congratulate you on a wise investment. Not only do you have a great way to make your home cooked meals, but you are also saving a lot of money on your annual electric bill. Since you will not be using the electricity to make your food, that is a saving. Additionally, the propane that you do use is much cheaper than the electricity for the same amount of time. Congratulations for having the forethought to make the switch!
You may be saving a lot of money on your electric bill, but how are you doing in terms of your propane bill? Well, if you are only doing ok, we are about to make that ok into a great! There are some things that you can do to get more out of your propane range. This will not require you to do anything that would void your manufacturer’s warranty. So, without further ado, let’s dive right on in the things that you can do to make sure that you are getting the most out of your propane range.
- Flames – It is important to keep an eye on the flames of your range. When propane is burning properly, the flames will be blue. If you see any other color, then your range is not working correctly and is in need of services. Too hot means not only that you are using too much propane, but it means that you could damage your pots and pans. Too cold means that you will not be burning at the optimum level and are at risk of having carbon monoxide poisoning. So, remember if it is not blue, call us to come to you.
- Seal – Around your stove, there is a soft seal. Every few months, make sure to take note if there are any tears in it. If there are, you will be allowing heat to escape. This will not only prolong the time it takes to cook your food, but it will also mean you are wasting propane.
- Cleaning – When you open the range door, you are letting heat escape. The reason that you are probably opening the door is that you cannot see in the window. Take the time to clean the window so that you don’t have to open the door. In addition to letting the heat escape, you will also make it take longer to cook your food. Your time is already short, and you don’t want to add unnecessary minutes to your cooking time when simply cleaning the window would save you from doing that.
Bottini Fuel hopes that the information that we provided you will not only save you time but also save you money. As we said, these are simple things that you can do that will not void your warranty. Take the advice and you will be getting more out of your propane range than you ever thought possible.
