A Severe Weather Message to Our Customers Date Posted: 01/06/2014
With the forecast of extreme cold temperatures for our service area in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee over the next 24-48 hours, Piedmont Natural Gas is reminding customers of several simple and relatively inexpensive measures that they can take to be more energy efficient in their home and to better manage their home’s energy consumption:
  • Set the thermostat in your home lower – while everyone has their own level of comfort, setting the thermostat lower by even a few degrees for a period of time, can help reduce the amount of energy consumed in your home.
  • Caulk and weather-strip any doors and windows that leak air – this will help reduce the amount of energy that is wasted by escaping through drafty spaces around doors and windows.
  • Check your furnace’s air filters every month – dirty filters reduce the efficiency of your heating system and can increase your energy consumption.
  • Ensure proper insulation in your home – Check to make sure your home has adequate insulation so that your heating and cooling systems are working as efficiently as possible.
Ranelle Warfield, Piedmont's Vice President of Customer Service, commented, "There are many steps that customers can take to control their energy consumption," she said.  "Some, like turning your thermostat down several degrees saves energy, costs nothing, and is easy to do.  Others, like making sure windows and doors are properly sealed only cost a few dollars.  Still other steps, like investing in a programmable thermostat or purchasing higher efficiency natural gas equipment and appliances may cost a bit more upfront but will save the customer both energy and money over the life of the equipment.”
