Anybody else's electric bill just ASTRONOMICAL this month?!
When I read the "balance due" portion I was like...
WELL.. with these crazy cold temperatures you can just EXPECT a higher electric bill, but I do have a few ways to save some money!
- Keep your thermostat around 68 degrees ... every degree you turn it up or down is going to represent 3%-5% on your energy consumption! (source WKRN)
- Weather proof your windows! You can put plastic film over the windows to keep the heat from escaping and the cold weather from seeping in!
- Blind or heavy drapes can also help the cold air from coming through the glass into the house!
- You can buy some door sweeps to keep under all your doors OR I remember my mom would always use old towels to keep the cold from coming in under the door!
