During the chilly months, are you reaching for an electric heater to stay toasty and warm? If you’re trying to save on heating costs by leaving your thermostat where it is, you’ve fallen for a myth about saving energy that just isn’t true. Running an electric heater is often much more expensive than setting your thermostat to a warmer temperature. If you’re trying to ward off the chill, try keeping all of the interior doors open in your home so the warm air can circulate more evenly. Make use of your gas or wood burning fireplace if you have one because these are also less costly and can heat up a room quickly. Finally, consider purchasing an electric blanket, which uses significantly less energy and can make a big difference in your overall comfort, especially at night.
