Preparing For Bitterly Cold Temperatures

GREENVILLE, TX – January 10, 2024 – As the forecast calls for extreme winter weather to arrive in the coming days, Atmos Energy is closely monitoring the weather and staging our employees across our system.

Colder weather may impact the amount of natural gas you use. Using energy wisely and making a few household changes affect how much you spend on natural gas and other energy bills. Here are some tips to help you stay safe and conserve energy this winter:

  • Never use an oven or a gas stovetop to heat your home.
  • Protect natural gas meters. Natural gas meters are weather-proof; however, remove snow and ice from natural gas meters with a broom or brush to ensure that the meter keeps working smoothly. Never kick or chip snow and ice away with a hard object. Call Atmos Energy’s Emergency Number, 866.322.8667, if you have concerns about your meter.
  • Make sure external vents for dryers and other natural gas equipment are clear. Blocked vents for dryers and other gas appliances can lead to a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide gas. Contact a licensed plumber or qualified contractor if you have questions about proper venting.
  • Minimize the risk of frozen pipes. Leave faucets running at a trickle, open cabinet doors, and close all doors and windows to keep heat inside.
  • Save money and energy by setting your thermostat to 68 degrees during the day and 58 degrees when you are away from home, where it is safe to do so.
  • If you think you smell gas, act fast! Call 911 and the Atmos Energy emergency number, 866.322.8667, and leave the area immediately and safely at a distance.
