Winter’s Coming… Are You Ready? | Ambit Energy

LWMNovDec2014small_Page_28El Nino is coming! What does that mean for our 2014-2015 winter long range forecast? While The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a winter with frigid temperatures, dare we say it, colder than last year’s polar vortex, other long range forecasts are predicting El Nino will produce a warmer winter than last year. So who is right? Ever hear the saying “Weathermen are the only people who can be right 50% of the time and still keep their jobs.”? Weather is at best unpredictable and is very difficult to tell the kind of a winter we will have. So the best thing
we can do is be prepared for anything! Here are some helpful ideas to help you save money this winter season.


  • HVAC checkup: It is worth the service charge to be sure your system is operating at optimal levels by having an inspection of the motors, belts and other complex components. Remember to change those filters every month to increase efficiency of the system.
  • Consider a Digital Thermostat: An older system in not as efficient as the new ones and they can over heat a room. A programmable thermostat allows you to control the temperature when people are not at home and when they are home.
  • Clean the Ducts: Clean air ducts allows for efficient movement of heat and clean air. It is best to consult a professional for this service.
  •  Check Insulation and seal those Doors and Windows: Make sure blown insulation hasn’t settled and are at proper levels. Sealing doors and windows and applying weather-stripping are keys to keeping your energy cost down.

AND….Pay LESS $$$ For Your Natural Gas

The biggest monthly energy cost is the gas delivered to your home and you have no control over these costs. You pay what the incumbent natural gas provider tells you to pay. Until now, Deregulation of energy allows you chose what you WANT to pay. Deregulation means energy companies now have competition from certified energy retailers and you have options. Options that let you select a different supplier providing you natural gas with significant annual savings. Savings that you can use for other things than paying inflated energy bills.

Switching is completely transparent, no contracts or fees, and you retain Washington Gas as your biller and as the delivery company. Then it just gets better!
