Alright, folks. I'm UghRochester and I've been living on my own for over 6 months. *Hi, UghRochester.* Anyways, my rent is $500/month and I only pay electric and of course Comcast for internet (shut up, De-Ting it's the only provider around beside Verizon and AT&T). This probably doesn't concern any of you, but you'll probably insult me for paying too much for my small ass apartment. Anyways, I didn't know I had electrical heating, always thought it was gas. So, last month I only paid $27.90 for my electric. Awesome! I still thought it was gas and I told myself to only save $50 and the rest I could blow. Well, this month's bill fucked me in the ass. $109, what?! My dad's apartment is bigger than mine and he only pays $50. So, I found out from my electric company my heating is electric. Fuck! So, I need tips on how to stay heated, but not have a high electric bill. TLR My electric bill is high. How can I lower my electric bill and still have my small apartment heated? Are small portable heaters energy efficient? May you recommend some to me? *NOTE I always have my lights off until I need to turn them on. I unplug all my appliances unless I'm using them.
