Atmos Energy Urges You to Prepare for Winter Now

JACKSON, Miss.- Atmos Energy is urging you to prepare for winter now. Last year was one of the coldest winters the state had seen. The United States faced extreme temperatures and record-setting natural gas consumption during the 2013-2014 winter heating season and according to industry leaders, the same may hold true this winter.

“It’s never too early to prepare for winter,” said Robert Lesley, Spokesperson for Atmos Energy.  “Last winter was one of the coldest in history, this winter is projected by outlets like the Farmer’s Almanac to be just as cold.”

In order to prepare for winter today, Atmos Energy advises all customers review their natural gas accounts. If you are a new customer or your service is currently inactive, call 1-888-286-6700 today to avoid long wait times on the phone and possible days without heat or hot water.

Atmos Energy’s two customer contact centers, which are located in Texas, receive approximately 17,000 calls per day.

The best way to lower your energy bill is to use energy more wisely. A programmable thermostat allows you to keep your house cooler at night and when you’re away, and will automatically warm your house to comfortable levels for the hours you are home.

Try Atmos Energy’s online tools such as an Energy Calculator to help manage your energy use. Inspect your windows and doors for drafts. Use caulk or sealant to insulate as needed..

Lesley said, “If you don’t have your gas service active now, please call us now so we can get you to the front of the line quicker to get your service turned back on.”
