American Mechanical Braces for a Cold, Long Winter

share

While most Americans cringe at the thought of colder, longer winter forecasts and rising fuel costs, American Mechanical is geared up and stand ready to serve you! And, according to ACCUWeather and the U. S. Energy Information Administration the upcoming winter is set to be the longest, most expensive winter the Hampton Roads area has experienced in some time. Natural gas consumption is forecasted to increase 10 percent when compared to last winter. The increase in consumption is based on a return to temperatures that are closer to normal following last winter’s El Nino weather pattern that resulted in winter temperatures that were 15 percent warmer than the previous 10 year average. Households heating primarily with electricity are forecast to spend an average of $49 (5 percent) more this winter, as a result of 5 percent higher consumption, including both heating and non-heating use of electricity, and about 1 percent higher residential electricity prices than last winter.
