Before we moved in to this house, we didn't have a gas stove. There is an ac/heater unit in the living room, but I figure the price of electricity will be higher than using gas. So, we decided to get a gas stove instead. It would heat up the room faster and the cost of gas will be cheaper. Apparently, I was wrong. It costs just about the same.
What to do now to reduce our gas bill? We definitely cannot afford paying at this rate. Last year, I try not to use the heater as much and just double up on my clothes. It wasn't comfortable; I can still feel the cold air through my feet and hands, but it was bearable. This year is a little different. Instead of just me, I have my 1 1/2 years old son. For some strange reason, he doesn't like to wear clothes. Whatever he can take off from his body, he will. Try walking around the house with just a thin layer baby overall and a diaper.
