Help! electric bill in winter outrageous!
We moved into our house last fall. We started getting bills that were 200, 300 and then finall our highest was 400 dollars for our electric bill because we have electric base board heat. We talked to our city who provides the electricity and they said the previous owners had the same bill. Our house isn't that big. Two bedrooms upstairs and a finished basement downstairs. Then we called the electric company to see if we could get a discounted rate for having base board heat as our only heat source and they just laughed. (My brother did this and it worked, but different area with different provider).
So now I am panicking as we have more bills this time around, I am working two jobs and Dh is working his good paying job and we are barely scraping by. Does anyone have any ideas on what we can do?
