Long Michigan Winters Can Be Tough on Energy Bills

We are currently in the coldest months of the winter season, and that means your heating equipment is working overtime to keep up. Managing your usage when the weather gets cold is key to controlling your monthly costs.
About half the cost of your utility bill is space heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
When the temperature drops, the increase in energy needed to heat your home can have a big impact on your bill.
People stay inside their homes more and use more energy for heating, lighting, hot water, electric blankets, hosting guests and throwing parties.
Monthly billing cycles can range from 26 to 35 days. A longer cycle can raise your monthly bill.
