The never ending battle of high energy costs versus a warm home this winter can have a person ready to move to warmer climes. However, don’t despair, as there are options and they don’t include wearing a sweater to bed. A few quick and simple tricks can save you hundreds of dollars this winter on your heating bills and you will still be warm and toasty.
There are many people I know that swear by Costco for the cheapest gas prices.
I wish there was a way to make it work for us, but typically we don’t get too much gas from Costco.
If anybody has any suggestions on how we could make it work (or whether we’re taking the right approach), I’d love to hear your feedback. Here are the main reasons that Costco gas doesn’t really work for us:
I was really nervous about our gas bill. The period for the last bill (early/mid-December to early/mid January) was cold. We had a lot of days where it didn’t get above 20 and the nighttime temperatures were in single digits. The furnace clicked on and off at a pretty rapid rate.
Still, I was hopeful that the bill wouldn’t be too high because, prior to the heating season, I discovered and repaired a leak around the fan in our master bedroom that had been whisking air into the attic at what had to be a pretty alarming rate, since the leak was occurring at the highest point in our home. I know that the fix worked because our bedroom, which had been noticeably colder in the winter in years past, was now a more comfortable temperature.
