This morning, it didn’t take long for me to figure out that Winter isn’t over yet (I’m pretty sharp). The sign in front of Hodges elementary indicated 35°. My windshield indicated rain. What a gloomy combination! Seems like only two days ago I was out enjoying a nice Sunday afternoon round of golf in short sleeves. My, how quickly the weather changes this time of year. Never trust a groundhog.
One thing that has always irritated me about drastically changing outdoor temperatures is trying to keep the house comfortable. One day the heat is on and the next day I’m running the A/C. That can’t be good for the pocketbook. I used to think, “If only there was a way to cheaply heat only the space I was using I could save tons of money!”
I finally did start saving tons of money the day I bought an Edenpure heater. I put one upstairs to keep the kids warm at night and discovered I didn’t even need to turn the upstairs heating unit on! I went from using a gas central heating unit, burning who knows how many BTU’s, to using a small electric infrared heater that only costs about $0.11 an hour to operate. I haven’t turned the upstairs central heat on in 3 years! Cha-Ching!
This past year, I bought an Edenpure Gen2 for my bedroom. I had been running my gas fireplace really hot (about 74°) so the heat would get back to my bedroom and keep it at least 69°. Once I put the Gen2 in the bedroom, I was able to turn the fireplace down to 70° or lower and the Gen2 kept me as warm as I wanted to be at night. The best part about all this is that the wife loves it! It may not sound like a big deal but trust me, four degrees on the thermostat equals huge savings on the gas bill. HUGE! Finally buying something the wife approves of was huge, too. HUGE!
We probably have at least 6 or 8 more weeks of weather that will dip below the comfort zone. What will you do to heat up your spaces? How much will it cost you? Come get an Edenpure heater and you will save money just like I did…um, just like I still do.
