September 2019 HVAC News

We specialize in bringing you forecasts of weather and prices, innovation news you can use and opportunities to lower your heating and cooling costs through tips and deals.

Energy Costs are Stable or Lower

How high will your heating bill be this winter? Costs should be stable compared with last year. Low inflation and strong domestic output are the cause of steady prices.

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), 2019 natural gas prices are slightly higher than last year but lower than 2017.

Heating oil is up slightly down from last year.

Trading Economics says propane cost is down 29.7% since the beginning of the year. That should remain consistent through this heating season.

The only concern is rising exports. As prices drop, exports increase and supply is reduced. That might eventually produce a correction, but it isn’t likely in the next few months.

Early Snow and Hurricane Potential

The Rockies and surrounding highland areas got blasted by one of the earliest blizzards in recent memories.

At the same time, tropical storms with hurricane potential continue to churn offshore. Stay tuned to local and national forecasts to be prepared for bad weather.
