Weather changes

wow, we have had some weather changes here lately.  A nice drop in the temps.  Some are using their heat, of course I smile because I have my windows up with fans going.  I love cooler weather, and snuggling in my bed under quilts.  We have been down in the 40's at night. Delish!!

So I was checking my bill online and there is an option(Entergy customer) to have your bill analyzed.  It is a very helpful tool, it tells you how much less your bill was than last month and how much less power you used.  Check out that option, it will help you to know what is going on with your electric usage.

What are your plans to save on heating costs for this year?  I would love to hear your thoughts on this.  We do not use our gas furnace.  We have one of those heaters like they use in those Amish fireplaces.  They really work and are worth the extra cost.  Our electric bill stayed lower using that for heat than it did running the a/c this summer.  And we stayed plenty warm.  We wear out long sleeves inside and warm socks.  I would rather be on the cool side than too hot, and when I get really cold I do have an electric heater to place right beside me for immediate heat.  I only used it a few times last year.
