Chattanooga Gas reminds guests of coffers available to help pay their bills

“We fete that colder rainfall can increase demands on ménage budgets due to advanced energy use,” said Pedro Cherry, chairman and CEO of Chattanooga Gas.”We’re committed to helping guests identify available backing programs that can help this downtime.”

Registration for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program – LIHEAP – a federally funded entitlement program from theU.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is underway for eligible guests. The entitlement provides fiscal relief to families whose income is below 150 of the poverty line. The fiscal backing is available until plutocrat for the program runs out, so guests are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible.

Fresh support is available through several other original associations throughout Tennessee. Interested residers should call Bradley-Cleveland Community Services at423-479-4111 or the Hamilton County Department of Youth and Family Development at423-643-6434 for help.

For natural gas guests seeking further control over energy consumption and heating bills, Chattanooga Gas also offers these tips for energy effectiveness
.
Install a Programmable Thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows guests to set the temperature in their home while they’re down and increase the temperature when they return.
Seal Windows and Leaks with Weather-Stripping For homes with garret access, make sure the door is isolated and seals tight, much like a refrigerator. Use rainfall- stripping and screen door latches for a snug seal.
Cover Reflections Help keep cold air out of the basement or bottleneck space by covering reflections during the downtime. Use foundation reflections to keep bottoms warmer and heating bills lower.
Install a Water Heater Jacket Cover A water heater jacket can cut up to 15 off the costs of heating water by precluding energy loss.
