I live in an area of the country that has very extreme winter weather.
- I didn’t grow up in a climate like this so it has been quite an adjustment for me.
My husband got a job up north about five years ago, so we have been here ever since. I never saw myself living in a place that gets up to ten inches of snow in the winter, but the job was too good to pass up. Since we moved up here, I have been trying to figure out the most cost effective way to warm up our home. We don’t have a fireplace, so that is out of the question. So I think our next best option is to get a couple of space heaters and put them in the rooms that we use the most. If we turned on the heating system every time it go cold, the electric bill would be through the roof. I really don’t want to have to turn on the heating system that often because of how much it costs to heat your home up here. I am not used to having to turn on the heating system at all since I did not grow up in this climate. However, I am trying to adjust to it without complaining too much to my husband. I bought a couple of space heaters last week and I am going to see how well they heat my home. I also need to do some research on space heater safety because I know that this heating system can be very dangerous if you aren’t careful.
