It’s been cold (already).

A higher gas bill may be coming soon.

You may have noticed – it’s been cold earlier than usual this year. That means, if you’ve been keeping the house warm, you may expect to see higher gas bills as early as December.

While there’s not much you can do about the weather, there are a few steps you can take to save on your heating costs this winter.

Lock in a low fixed rate.

Fixed rates will save you money because they’re lower than variable rates and don’t fluctuate with the market month to month. Right now, we’re offering great, low fixed rates. And if you compare them to the high variable rates we’ve seen in the market recently, you’ll see that a fixed rate could save you hundreds of dollars when your usage is at its highest.

So be sure to look at your rate plan, and if you’re not already on a fixed rate, visit gassouth.com or call 877-472-4932 to select one.

Eliminate the winter spikes with Budget Bill.

Gas South also offers a free, convenient solution that allows you to pay the same amount every month. With Budget Bill, you can avoid winter spikes and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a predictable, consistent monthly payment. There are no additional fees and you’ll only pay for the natural gas you use. If you’re interested in enrolling in Budget Bill, visit your Online Account Service at gassouth.com.

Keep out the cold. 

To help offset higher utility costs during the cold months, take advantage of energy-saving tips like programming your thermostat, sealing off cracks and leaks around windows and doors, and replacing your furnace filters for maximum heating efficiency.
