That sounds cheap I am all electric.. Of course I also prefer it that way.. I figured those up north were spending a ton for heat in the winter months..<quoted text>I spend under $1,000 a year on heat and a/c. We stay comfortable too. I just you'd my head and made moves to conserve energy. Natural gas is cheap and I don't use much electric from the grid. I don't need O telling me how to conserve, I do a lot better than he does.
