Cold weather impacting customer bills

Posted | January 26, 2018

In December, we had 17 days with temperatures below freezing. Then came January, and with it, another 17 days of temperatures below freezing. Temperature comparisons month-to-date show January 2018 was 38 percent colder than January 2017. Mother Nature dumped ice and several inches of snow across LG&E and KU’s service territories, leaving behind bitterly cold temperatures for a period of time.

As customers receive their latest bills, some have reached out to us asking why their bill increased even though they took steps to conserve. Watch this video to learn more.

And, consider these helpful tips and programs available to help during the winter season.

Weather history calendar

The amount of electricity needed for heating rises sharply in times of extreme cold. Prolonged periods of sub-freezing temperatures in December and January had a significant impact on our customers’ energy use, which ultimately impacts your energy bill. The National Weather Service that tracks the need for home heating noted that in December, usage in Kentucky was 75 percent higher than November. January heating demand was up another 14 percent over December.

As a reference point to the weather’s impact on energy use, the calendar below features the average temperature for each day from November to February, as well as the average temperature for the same day last year.

Tips for your home

Tips for your home

Make sure your heating system/furnace is operating efficiently.
  • Have your furnace checked by a certified professional. 
  • Change your furnace filter monthly or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Seal up leaks and gaps to help keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

Adjust your thermostat – ideally to the lowest comfortable setting.

  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat if you’ve not done so already.
  • Turn the temperature down a few degrees on your thermostat if you plan to be away 4 hours or more.
  • Unblock your registers
  • Make sure items, such as drapes or furniture, are not covering your registers to better circulate the warm air.
  • Open blinds and curtains - Let the sun help to naturally heat your home.
  • Layer Up – Put on socks, a sweatshirt; use an extra blanket.
