Cold Weather Impact on 2018-2019 Heating Season
The winter of 2019 has been one for the record books, from extreme low temperatures to record high amounts of snow. That extreme weather will likely have an impact on your natural gas bills this spring. Here are a few reasons why:
- The weather was colder. This heating season was 9.1 percent colder than normal and 2.7 percent colder than last year. Colder weather will increase heating costs.
- You are using more natural gas. When the weather is colder, you likely use more natural gas for heating. The colder the temperature is outside, the more it takes to maintain temperatures inside.
