“I love your degree day website. It is a fantastic time saver.
I can't tell you enough how much I love having this info readily available, with the ability to download the data. I have been looking for something like this for years, instead of relying on old info or spending too much time on calculating.”

“Your degree day website is an extremely valuable resource for the energy industry. I have been looking for this type of data for a very long time. I congratulate you for organizing a huge amount of information into a user-friendly interface that nearly everyone should be able to maneuver.
I will introduce your website to my students when we are studying the correlation between heating degree days and space heating consumption, comparing an efficient envelope with an inefficient envelope, and comparing HDD at different temperature bases.
Please keep up the good work - it's very valuable!”

“I was having issues finding information for the SouthEast region of the US until I found your wonderful site.
Thank you for this awesome free resource.”
Marcus De La Rosa
“I find the BizEE Degree Day web site very useful for our property management activities.
We prefer to obtain HDD/CDD data that coincides with our utility billing periods. The BizEE site has enough flexibility that I can obtain the data needed by pulling one or two reports at most to cover the dates needed.”

“Thanks for such a nice website with information and data source. It is very useful for energy calculations.”
Sanjay Patel, P. Eng.

“I'm a green energy consultant, and Degree Days.net helped me understand how to predict my future energy consumption.
I live in Catania (Italy) and it's surprising to see how easily I can manage my energy bills using my local weather station data.
I recommend this tool, it worked to lower my air conditioning energy consumption needs.”
Residential Solar Power
“Degree Days.net is a great informational tool for me to use.”
Director of Engineering
Adam's Mark - Indianapolis Airport, Indiana
“Thank you for a very useful site. I live well outside of Boston and our heating seasons are 20-25% colder. Until I found your site, I did not have a reliable source of degree data for my area. I can now better understand the effects of energy efficiency improvements I might make by taking the variability of the winters out of the equations.”
“I am in the HVAC & energy management business. We track utility usage (gas & electric) against HDD & CDD.
The NOAA site is cumbersome in that we cannot sort by just our zip and get the data... It takes some time to filter thru the data (and a lot of wasted printing). It is nice that your results go right into a spreadsheet.
Your explanation of HDD and CDD is great. Your explanation of its usefulness is VERY informative.
Thanks and keep up the good work!!”

“I wanted to thank you for this tremendously helpful resource. The tool you've developed is easy to use, but flexible enough to be very powerful.”
Facilities Maintenance Manager

“I love it. I'm in the process of developing training for building operators for buildings that are on Toronto's Deep Lake Water Cooling (DLWC) central cooling system, and am introducing them to monitoring & targeting. Having this source of CDD data is really helpful, in part to show the impact of base temperature. I'll certainly reference your site in the training as well as with colleagues who are in the same line of work.”
Sustainable Development Consulting Associates Inc.

“Love the site, very useful, easy to use and understand. Very intuitive, unlike some of the NOAA sites.”
Veolia Water North America-Northeast
“I like that you can search a local weather station and download the data in excel so that it's easy to manipulate. Last year when I tried to analyze my heating bill it was a big hassle. I could only find generalized numbers for the major wx stations. Thanks.”
Old Saybrook, Connecticut
“The information that I downloaded was very helpful in estimating some natural gas billing that the utility has not issued for the past few months for one of our clients. I appreciated the easy maneuverability of your website and quick download.”
Luthin Associates (Energy Management Services)
“Just discovered your site. Extremely user-friendly. Good articles explaining H&CDD principles. Well done. Passed your site on to 7 of my colleagues already to do my part in spreading your exposure.”

“great online service”
“I am in the market for a new HVAC system and have used degreedays.net extensively to help me understand the "tipping point" of hybrid systems (I am considering both geothermal and air-source heat pumps).
I have also shared the site with others who were trying to determine their savings from installing geothermal. Degreedays.net really helps to ensure a fair comparison across different years.”
“I use the BizEE degree days info monthly. I am responsible for operations and reporting of HVAC and fuel for a 400,000 sq. ft. facility here in east Tennessee with an annual budget of around $3,000,000.
This makes comparing energy usage between months and years much easier. Thanks for your information and availability.”
“This is great! I wish I had had this for the past few months because I am doing commercial energy audits. I have more audits to do in the future. I use the daily numbers and adjust the monthly HDD for the actual heating bills I am analyzing. Your site saves so much time. Thanks.”
Ann Arbor, MI
“Congratulations on an excellent source of helpful information. This is some of the most useful information I have seen, and I have been in the business since 1974!”

“I love your HDD website. I work at the Erie Housing Authority. The federal government, through HUD, funds our Public Housing program. Utility costs are something that we are required to track very closely. Your web site makes this a lot easier for me.
We are in the process of replacing 1,300 furnaces with new high-efficiency models. I am sure that in the next few years I will get many questions on our natural gas consumption. Your web site will definitely help.
Thanks for all of your work making this as quick and easy as possible.”
Housing Authority of the City of Erie, Pennsylvania
“I'm doing an MSc in Building Design at De Montfort University in the UK. Our assignment is on degree days and I've found your website a super resource and have told everyone on the course to check it out.
My analysis shows that you've done a very thorough job of calculating the degree days. Your results are excellent and your website is very informative and useful for real design work. Your explanations of degree days and their pitfalls and advantages are spot on.
Energy and Sustainable Building Design MSc, De Montfort University, UK
“Your website, combined with the knowledge that we teach, provides valuable information for householders seeking to take control of their home's energy use, especially the use of heating fuel, for which few other tools are available.”

“I am bowled over by what you have created. Congratulations!”
“I want to thank you for this extremely valuable resource. I'm developing a Building Performance Institute certification training for home performance contractors and will include a link to your site in the courseware.”
Ponizil Energy (Green Home Construction and Upgrades)
“The Degree Days.net web site is extremely helpful... I use it to educate others, taking say 75 degrees for cooling, then using 76 degrees to see how it affects the cost. I've put together a spreadsheet where the Facility Managers can add up all their equipment load. Using the different temperature settings and average KWh cost it calculates the difference in operating costs.”
Gary C. Wobler
Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security
“I feel that this type of information is going to become more and more valuable as our nation continues to press forward with conservation and efficiency. In the utility industry we have seen a big push for cleaner and cheaper power but, without the data that you provide, it makes it difficult to judge the factors of weather and how they affect the overall demand for power.”
Hannibal Board of Public Works
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Weather Underground for making this site possible by giving us permission to use their huge database of temperature data to calculate our degree days from. Much obliged Weather Underground!
If you've stumbled across this page by accident, we appreciate that you're probably less interested in reading a selection of quotes than you are in downloading some degree day data. No problem at all:
