I am renting an end unit condo that I'm pretty sure has very poor windows. We keep our heat between 70-73 and it's ALWAYS cold in here, it feels like it never gets warm. If I owned this place I would install a pellet stove and put new windows in, but I can't.
Our electric bill this month was $650. I want to cry. Luckily we can afford to pay it, but who wants to pay that much A MONTH!?! Our money is seriously just flying right out the windows.
I decided to turn the heat down to 65 and try to deal with freezing my butt off so our bill won't be as high next month. But can anyone think of any creative ways to try to keep the heat in the house?
As is, we try to boil a large pot of water on the stove, keep the curtains closed to try to keep out drafts. I'm trying to avoid space heaters because I'm really nervous about fires but what the heck else can I do!?!
Any help is greatly appreciated.
