My heating bill is almost twice the amount that it was last month, even though the thermostat has been set at the same temperature since the onset of winter.
I usually set the thermostat at one temperature and just leave it there all through the winter, because I read an article that said doing that saves you money. I think normally that’s true, but I’ve been having some trouble with my furnace recently and I think that’s making the heating bill go up exponentially. I don’t know exactly what the trouble is with the furnace, because I’m not exactly an HVAC professional. I actually have no clue how to check my furnace to see what the issue is. That’s why I called my local HVAC company and made an appointment to have someone come out and check out my heating system for me. I hate the fact that I’m going to have to pay double the amount of my regular heating bill this month, but I guess what’s done is done. Hopefully, when the HVAC technician comes to my house, he will be able to tell what the problem is and it will be a cheap fix. With all of the extra cost of the heating bill, I’m not going to have a lot of extra money to pay for any furnace repairs. Maybe it will just be something minor and it won’t cost a lot to repair. At least that’s what I’m hoping for. I would really like for my furnace to run like it’s supposed to and I would love to have a warm cozy house for the winter!
