Heating Degree Day units are computed as the difference between the base temperature and the daily average temperature. (Base Temp. - Daily Ave. Temp.) One unit is accumulated for each degree Fahrenheit the average temperature is below the base temperature. Negative numbers are discarded. Example: If the days high temperature was 65 and the low temperature was 31, the base 50 heating degree day units is 50 - ((65 + 31) / 2) = 2. This is done for each day of the month and summed.
