Our winters here can be pretty brutal.
And this means running the central heating system nearly twenty four hours per day and seven days a week! That really runs up energy bills no matter if you have a great SEER rating on your central heat and a/c unit or not.
I was reading on some website that there was a way to avoid running the central heating and air conditioning system’s heating all of the time. This method was to go out and buy a few portable space heaters. One for each room that you need heating in. This will reduce energy costs because portable space heaters are so much cheaper to run than central heating and air conditioning systems. I decided to give this a shot. And let me tell you they were right! The first month alone of doing the portable space heater method nearly cut my electric bills in half. This was the best thing I could have found out. It was a great idea to try it. Usually I am skeptical about things I read online, but for some reason with this one I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad that I did. Because otherwise I would still be sitting here having super high electric bills every single month in the winter. The portable space heaters were indeed the answer to help reduce the energy use with the really brutal weather and temperatures we have. I wanted to tell the world about portable space heaters and what they can do because I think everyone who has cold winters should save money!
