Michigan’s cold winter temperatures are causing most residents to decide to stay safe and warm inside. For many, though, the extra cold weather brings higher than normal heating bills.
In January 2018 alone, the Lansing area recorded five days below zero – the most days in January since 2014.
Natural gas use is up compared to last year. Electricity use is also up in order to power various appliances such as furnace blower motors, fireplace fans, geothermal pumps and space heaters.
