Weather is the biggest reason for fluctuations in your electric power bill. In fact, 60% of average electric power costs are due to heating and cooling alone. In the Chattanooga area, where weather is unpredictable, bills can be drastically different from month to month.
As your heating and air conditioning system works harder, energy usage increases. So does the related utility bill. This is true even if you leave your thermostat on a constant setting, because your heat and air system has to work harder as the temperature fluctuates outside.
