K, so I'm out for the first time in a long time being totally on my own - since like the late 70's or something. And I plan on keeping everything off or low, no OFF - personally I prefer a cooler atmosphere any way. So first month here in 2 bedroom spacious place (with full basement) was decent in the Summer to Fall - September $50 and read (hell I'm a single person - I'm certainly not doing big meals, etc and prefer grill, etc), 2nd month - November - bad Tude - didn't read and so I got the previous guy's average -- $130. grr.
Read mine for this past month though and it was $72 - k - I can live with that - Want under $100 for this place (as I encompassed into my ways and means committee with the brain on getting this place ..) and I did run the heat several times last month - and even falling to sleep (BAD ME) with lights and heat on - ugh).
But I'm back on my no heat rule - see - I live in an "enveloped" ? townhouse thingee where there are 9 units and three of the units have doors to the outside only (the other of us have back doors and decks too) and they travel upstairs to where they live on the 2nd and 3rd story floors).
BUT to my benefit ... I have two small furnaces and two - not sure - they're not 20 gallon, but if they are - mine sucks, water heaters in my own personal basement and so that rather heats me --- and for having the other tenants around me - KEWL, no worries about pipes here bursting - I haz enough stuff working to keep me going.
I'm not intending on being a scrooge - but maybe I am - I live on a budget and huge heating bills would kill me.
