Natural Gas Continues to be the Most Cost-Effective Choice to Heat Your Home


Noted by consumers and businesses alike, the cost of energy, including natural gas, has increased over the past few months. This is being driven by increased demand and decreased production, economic recovery from the pandemic, paired with winter cold and recent weather events. While the cost of natural gas has increased recently, it is still less expensive than other alternatives like electricity and propane.

At Arkansas Oklahoma Gas, we work hard to secure the lowest gas price for our customers. As your natural gas provider, we do not make a profit from the cost of the natural gas we deliver to you. Our customers pay what we pay. While natural gas continues to be the most affordable option for heating your home or business, the commodity price on your upcoming heating bills is predicted to be higher than last winter.

To help improve energy consumption and save on your energy bill, particularly during cold winter months, here are some tips to help your home or business be more energy efficient:

  • Keep thermostats no higher than 68 degrees. If possible, set it at 65 degrees when home and 60 degrees when away from home.
  • Avoid turning the thermostat up too high, too fast.
  • Close dampers on unused fireplaces and keep garage doors closed to prevent warm air from escaping.
  • Insulate around windows and doors to prevent air leaks and keep warm air inside.
  • Soak up the sun by opening curtains on your south-facing windows during the day and let the sunlight heat your home.
