The past two months our electric bill has been significantly higher than in previous billing periods. We’re not too sure why this is, but it sure is not fun!
Obviously there’s been the colder weather, so you would assume that heating the apartment would take more, but we’ve left the heat off for half a day every day since that first higher bill. We’ve turned lights off that we aren’t using more often. We’ve been home less, so electricity in general has not been used. Prior to these past two bills we used whatever electricity we wanted without seeing any real increase in payment.
Last month we called our electric company to see if perhaps there was a mistake, but they said there wasn’t, so we just have to live with it. Our rate is fixed, so that hasn’t changed. I’m not sure what else we can do to save money on this. Any ideas?
