Cost for Gas & Electric
We just updated the utility usage information for our houses (10-2012). We see that the electric bills are higher than the gas bills in all cases. The price of gas is declining. We think that the increased use of multiple computers, TVs, cable boxes and gaming consoles that are left on 24 hours a day is increasing electrical consumption.
If you want to manage your utility costs, power down anything you are not using and turn off lights. Use energy efficient bulbs. Close your windows in the winter. Use the storm windows in your house during the winter. Call us if you need help with that.
