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 and electric bills in spring. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. The weather was colder. This heating season was 3.8 percent colder than normal. Colder weather tends to increase heating costs.
  2. You may be using more natural gas or electricity. When weather is colder, you likely use more natural gas or electricity for heating. The colder the temperature is outside, the more it takes to maintain temperatures inside.
