Arctic Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning Says Home Heating Costs Are Expected to Rise

Share Article

There is expected to be up to a 13 percent increase in natural gas costs and up to a 9 percent increase in propane costs, depending on weather and demand.

According to USAToday, (read here) heating costs are expected to rise. Depending on the weather and demand, consumers are likely to see up to a 13 percent increase in natural gas prices and up to a 9 percent increase in propane prices.

Since many power plants use natural gas, already high electric rates will rise too. If a home is all electric, its heating costs will be affected as well.

If a furnace is more than 20 years old, a homeowner is probably sending 30 to 40 cents of every heating dollar “up the flue pipe.” Over a heating season that adds up, and over many it adds up to some serious bucks. A new gas furnace can cut the waste by half or more, depending on the efficiency of the unit.

All electric homes that don’t currently have a heat pump should get one. Electric heat is a very expensive way to heat a home. Converting to a heat pump will save big bucks on heating costs. If a home already has a heat pump, today’s models are so much more efficient than those installed even just 10 to 15 years ago.

Arctic Comfort wishes all a happy, safe holiday season filled with many cherished memories with family and friends.
