The arrival of spring this month brings the hope that warmer weather will arrive soon. In February, the average temperature was 27oF, just slightly warmer than January’s average temperature of 21oF.   Typically, January and February are the coldest winter months and when we have the highest heating bills. That cold weather drives up your energy usage and impacts your monthly energy bill.

As winter turns into spring, the weather can be unpredictable, making it difficult to budget for your energy bills.  Here are some tips to help you manage your energy use and keep your costs under control:

  1. You can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling by adjusting your thermostat 7° to 10°F cooler for 8 hours a day from its normal setting.
  2. Dress for the season, indoors. This is the time of year when layering your clothing will help to keep you comfortable as daily temperatures vary.
