There are several reasons for an increase in your natural gas bill. Below are steps you can take to find out what is causing an increase, and other factors that could contribute to a higher bill.

Analyze Bills

For a personalized analysis of factors potentially causing your bill to increase or change, visit the Analyze Bills section within the Ways to Save tool in My Account. With the Ways to Save tool, you can also complete your Energy Profile and receive a household analysis and customized energy-efficient recommendations.

Past Due Amount

Any remaining past due amount included in your current bill will cause it to be higher.

Increase in Appliance Usage

Increased use of appliances during cold weather can impact your bill. For example, water heaters work longer and harder to heat the colder water coming in, which could double with the arrival of guests at home. Also, cooking more or leaving appliances on could impact your bill.
