Bottom Line: Despite regional variations, overall, the U.S. experienced fewer heating degree days in October 2021 than the month’s 10-year average.
A heating degree day (HDD) is a measure of how cold a location is. It’s derived by comparing the average outdoor temperature to a baseline of 65 degrees. More extreme cold temperatures result in a higher number of HDDs, which typically translate to an increased demand for space heating by energy consumers.
