Fracking is making it possible to stay warm for less this winter.
Hydraulic fracturing has made it possible to access more natural gas than we’ve ever encountered before, and that is resulting in everyday savings for many people in select states. Previously, we’ve talked about the environmental benefits and the economic benefits of natural gas, but we’ve been talking about these things on a broad scale. This winter however, many people are going to start to see the economic benefits of hydraulic fracturing in their own homes with lowered energy bills!
The Energy Information Agency (EIA) predicts lower heating costs for homes that are heated with natural gas and oil.
Whether your home is heated with natural gas, oil or even propane, you will be glad to know that you can expect to pay a little less this winter. According to the EIA, if you heat your home with natural gas, you can expect to pay a full 10% less than you did last year between the months of October and March. This is due in large part to hydraulic fracturing. The more natural gas we have available, the lower the prices you can expect to pay. The EIA also has predicted that homes that use oil for heat can expect to pay as much as 25% less than they did last winter, and homes that use propane can expect to save up to 21%.
The benefits and impacts of hydraulic fracturing can seem like far away matters that have no bearing on your day to day life, but you will be glad to know that you can enjoy the benefit of winter savings right in your own home!
