One way that I save money during the winter season is by using a space heater.
Sometimes I just need a little bit of heat directly where I am sitting.
I don’t need to heat the whole three bedroom house when I am sitting in the living room and my feet are cold. A space heater is perfect for this particular type of application. Portable space heaters have been around for a long time. I remember my grandmother had a space heater in her home when I was a kid and that was a very long time ago. A lot of things have changed since then including the weather temperatures. I don’t remember it being so cold in Albuquerque, New Mexico when I was a kid. I remember some cold temperatures, but not the type of weather that we have now. I hardly remember running the heat at all when I was a kid. Now there are times when we have to worry about the freezing temperatures and snow. It is absolutely necessary to have a good working furnace, but I don’t turn it on unless I see snow in the forecast. The indoor temperatures all come down to a matter of personal preference and I personally prefer to save money every month instead of running the furnace when no one else is around. Some people might say that makes me cheap, but I think that makes me energy efficient and Earth friendly. Less furnaces means less greenhouse gases and emissions. I run the electric heater and nobody gets hurt.
