We experienced brutally cold weather during the month of February. Your home uses much more energy during cold weather, even when your thermostat settings are the same. According to the National Weather Service Data out of Nashville, Tennessee, February temperatures were well below normal. They recorded seven days that the temperature didn’t reach 32 degrees, three days with single-digit low temps, and the average monthly temperature was only 38 degrees.
Be prepared for higher electric bills and consider our levelized billing for the future. Levelized billing keeps your bill about the same every month. It averages those larger winter and summer bills with the rest of the year to produce a much lower bill.
