Save Money & Energy

Look to natural gas when it comes to being energy and savings smart.

Why is my natural gas bill higher?

Increase In Appliance Usage

Your natural gas appliances work harder during colder weather. This can cause your bill to be higher. For example, water heaters work longer and harder to keep your water hot, which could increase natural gas usage. Similarly, your furnace runs longer to keep your house warm when temperatures outside drop. Also, if you are using your fireplace more for additional heating, are cooking more or have guests at home, your bill could be impacted.

Higher Natural Gas Prices

Natural gas prices continue to remain high, according to Federal officials. However, natural gas is still expected to remain one of the lowest utility bills customers will face each month.

Past Due Amounts

Any past due amount on your current bill will cause it to be higher than normal.
