ST. LOUIS (January 3, 2014) –The coldest temperatures in more than a decade are set to invade St. Louis next week. During this time, Laclede Gas wants to remind all customers about several programs available to stay warm and use natural gas more efficiently:
• Budget Billing is a free service that provides customers with consistent bill amounts throughout the year. Customers can enroll today and the payment plan will start on their next billing cycle. To sign up, call 314-621-6960 or toll-free 800-887-4173.
• Cold Weather Rule is available from November through March. It provides the most lenient payment plan for customers who have fallen behind on their accounts. It enables eligible customers to continue gas service or restore gas service by making an initial payment and then begin a balanced monthly payment plan. If customers make their monthly payments, they can stay on this plan throughout the year.
• Heating assistance is available for customers struggling to stay warm. Customers can call
United Way 2-1-1 for more information.
• DollarHelp is an easy way for customers to help their neighbors stay warm this winter. Checking the red box on your Laclede Gas bill gives $1 a month to help our neighbors stay warm. Customers can also donate by visiting www.dollarhelp.org. Laclede Gas and the United Way together provide the administrative resources for this program so 100 percent of donations go directly to recipients.
If any customer is struggling to stay warm, we encourage them to call Laclede Gas directly to find out what options are available to them.
Some quick and easy tips to use natural gas more efficiently:
o Seal off unused rooms by closing the registers and keeping the doors shut tightly.
o Keep furniture away from heating registers.
o Make sure a clean furnace filter is installed.
o Wash only full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine.
o Clean out the dryer lint trap before each load to improve efficiency.
