When we think of Texas weather, relatively warm and temperate days come to mind, even in the winter. Last month, Northern Texas reached record-breaking cold temperatures that greatly affected residents of the state. Texans experienced freezing conditions and accumulating snowfall, and many were left without power and heat. Luckily, the temperatures are back to normal now – however, not only was North Texas affected but the rest of the nation was as well. Here at UGI Energy Services (UGIES), you can be sure that in a situation like the one just seen in Texas, we would walk you through each step of resolving these issues and how it correlates to your energy bill.
