Cold Winter Means Higher Heating Bills

It's been a cold Winter so far, so heating bills might be higher than usual.
It's been a cold Winter so far, so heating bills might be higher than usual. Over the past two months, Vectren officials say the average heating bill has been $30 to $40 more than this point last year.

Even though natural gas prices are a little bit higher this year, Vectren officials say the big factor is the cold. But there are easy ways to save money.

"The Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat to 68 degrees or lower," said Chase Kelly "And for every one degree you can lower for a sustained eight hour period, you can save up to 3 percent."

Vectren reminds customers that the company offers many programs that can help save them money. More information can be found at www.vectren.com
