In my honest opinion (smarter living)

September is showing lots of wonderful degrees in the eastern part of USA (from the HOT 80's or 90's to cold cold cold 30's.)
In my honest opinion for my (smarter living), don't touch that heater yet. Better yet, grab & bring out some blankets (cold?) add a extra layer of blanket before touching the heater.
(keep some $$$$ in your pocket.)
Wear socks, maybe a long sleeve shirt & pj pants to bed to stay extra warm.

(kinda off topic, people in my city whine tht they're "bills are high" but when it's chilly out side they don't think "layer up" (save $$$$ in the pocket) no they think & show "ROAR UP THE HEATERS YA'll!" & lose $$$$ than whine they can't pay they're lights/gas bill.) *frown*

So my honest opinion, layer up, bundle up. Save the $$$$ in your pockets!

It's nowhere NEAR sweater weather here. I doubt we'll use the heater in this house before we move, and where we're going most places don't even HAVE heaters.

It's still way to hot here to even think about using the heater. We always set our heat lower to cut down on the bill when we do use it.

It's usually the end of October first of November before we turn the heat on.

That's what we did last yet, our bill was a (bit) smaller not much b/c the apartment was very drafty, airy & cold it self!
