Your next heating bill is probably going to be higher than your last, considering the cold spell we went through just last month. This fluctuation is natural—but what you shouldn’t see is a sudden and dramatic increase in your bills this year despite comparable use to last year.
If you do notice this, it’s a sign that your Austin, TX heating system isn’t running as efficiently as it should be and you are literally paying for it. First, this could be a sign of an aging system or a system that is experiencing some issues that need repair. So if you haven’t had your heater checked in the last year, it’s a good idea to have it inspected, even if we are heading for warmer temperatures very soon.
