Get Winter Ready

With winter on its way, you’ve probably already turned on your heating system to keep warm. Here are some important points to keep in mind for the cold months ahead:

  • Dirty filters can restrict air flow and force your heating equipment to work harder than it should. Replace or perform regular cleaning of your filter to help keep your system operating at maximum efficiency.
  • Set your thermostat to an appropriate temperature. Having the temperature set too high could cause you to use more natural gas than needed. By lowering your thermostat by 3 °C at night or when you are away from your home, it will help to reduce your usage.
  • Be prepared to check your natural gas meter after periods of heavy snow and gently clear it using a soft brush or broom. Be careful with shovels and snow blowers near the gas meter and never shovel, blow snow, or plow snow up against your gas meter or piping.

IMPORTANT: If your meter is covered in ice, call Liberty Customer Service at 1-800-994-2762. Do not attempt to remove the ice yourself.
