Get Ready to Spend More: Natural Gas Prices Expected to Rise This Winter
Although the cost of natural gas has grown cheaper in recent years than it once was, Brooklyn residents still have to watch their money as delivery charges increase. Because of this, Petri Plumbing wants our neighbors to be able to get the most bang out of their bucks for utility costs.
Price increases coming
Previously approved natural gas delivery cost increases will be hitting Brooklyn residents next year and the year after. The prices that National Grid charges for natural gas delivery are scheduled to jump 9. 2 percent in 2018 and an additional 10 percent in 2019. This, of course, only relates to the price to deliver gas to your home. The price of the natural gas itself fluctuates according to market conditions.
The need for efficiency
With any price increase, Brooklyn homeowners will want to make sure their natural gas systems are running at top efficiency. Why pay more money than you have to? Now is the time to call a professional plumber to tune up your system and advise you on whether it might be time to upgrade your boiler. If you have a boiler than is more than 15 years old, it can’t compete with a new model, which can be up-to-98 percent energy-efficient. With older boilers as little as 50 percent energy efficient, replacing them pays for itself dramatically fast. Why throw away half the money you’re spending on heating your home each month?
Petri Plumbing offers services including water and gas pipe leak repair and installation, fixture installations, inspections, boiler repair, water heater installation, complete bathroom, kitchen, laundry and utility room remodeling and more.
