Bummer! I got a notice by email a couple of days ago that our electricity bill is going up to $296/month. Shoot! It was down to $280/month. I was a little worried that it was going to go up again, because there has been more than one day in the last month that 80°F was more than I could handle, and turned the thermostat down to 78°F.
I need to continue to be proactive in watching the meter and making sure we’re keeping the thermostat at 81°F, which is where we kept it at last year. I need to buy a floor fan for my desk area, as the air circulating is often all I need to feel cool enough.
Spring is here and summer is just around the corner, and it’s very hot here during the summer. Thank goodness for air conditioners. I’ve lived through many summers with only evaporative cooling, and it’s not any fun.
I need to do some more detective work to see if I can get our bill to go down again. It’s also interesting how often our bill is being changed, they used to only make the change once a year.
