Default Where can I get heating season degree-day data for my location?


For all the weather-related weather sites, I can't find
any that give degree-day data for this year.

LOL. :~D

I suppose unless you have the experience, the regrets for what might
have been would probably have seemed just as enormous. And over 2000
young men would never have known how lucky they were

Well at least the USA is now safe. Pity hurricanes don't have to pass
through airport controls.

A Google search hauled these up straight away:

What are Degree Days?

Degree Days is the rate of heat loss from a building, (related to the
building fabric) and the temperature difference between the inside and
outside of a building, the greater the temperature difference the more
heat will be lost. It is not possible to directly compare your
buildings performance from consumption data alone as weather conditions
vary from month to month and year to year.

Heating degree days are a measure of the severity and duration of cold
weather, the colder the weather in a given month the higher the degree
day value. If you take these into account it is possible to compare
one year with another and to determine whether any initiatives have
resulted in energy savings or there are problems with your building
that need to be addressed.
