Our PSE&G bill came on Friday. This time last year, we were in for a shock when a $400 bill arrived for our indiscriminate use of our ancient heating system.
Instead of $400, we managed to keep it down to $142 — and a good portion of that was electricity used for our little oil heater. We were pleasantly surprised.
But now it seems the weather may finally be getting colder. We know we’re going to have to turn on the radiator heat more often, but I’d rather save the money on the not-so-cold months, such as November, and use the heat on the coldest days.
