We're always trying to save money and energy by not using our air conditioning and waiting as long as possible before turning on the heat in the house. Without using heat or the AC, we spend about $96 a month on our electricity and heat ($6 of which is for using 100% wind power). I just hate to start the season of $200 utility bills!
Now our house is not insulated very well (or at all in our bedroom!), so I know that turning on the heat won't work very efficiently to warm us up. So I've been drinking tons of hot herbal tea, hot chocolate, and soup in front of a little space heater... but my fingers are so cold I'm having trouble typing.
It's 27 F outside right now and 58 F inside the house.
Am I crazy to not turn on the heat or should I just put on another (3rd) sweater?
