Transitioning away from electricity to gas with all of these processes saves a significant chunk of cash every month on energy expenses.
My monthly expenses are starting to get out of control. I ended my cable subscription recently because I’ve been mostly watching streaming service., And, I needed something to offset raising gas prices and the transition into winter each year and the effect it has on energy usage. It gets extremely cold in this region and it necessitates using a furnace on a near daily basis for several months out of the year. I had been using an electric furnace and had always hoped to eventually switch to a more cost effective heat source. Someone I knew suggested an oil furnace, but I found that in areas where propane or natural gas are readily available, they are cheaper heat sources than oil. Plus, the great thing about using gas to heat your home is that you now have the option to use it to dry your clothes and for your stovetop and the oven in your kitchen. Transitioning away from electricity to gas with all of these processes saves a significant chunk of cash every month on energy expenses. Not only that, but I also found a boiler system where the gas heats water inside a reservoir tank that is then fed to pipes within my subflooring, making my floors radiant heat sources. This completely bypasses leaky and ineffecient ductwork, which is a necessity with traditional forced-air furnaces. The amount of money I’m saving each month on energy expenses is going a long way towards balancing my chaotic budget. I don’t think I will be going back to buying cable again any time soon, but perhaps I can splurge once a week on premium beef at the grocery store instead.
