As the cooler weather moves in many people will turn to a space heater to take the chill off and to help reduce their heating costs. But wait! Not all space heaters are really the savings many believe them to be. If your heat is gas, then yes you will use less “heat expense” but the electricity it takes to run a space heater will cause a spike in your electric bill.

2 hours/day = $9.59/month
5 hours/day =$23.99/month
