Well, my effort to reduce my energy consumption has been a resounding flop. We got our first utility bill after installing the electric heater in the office and turning down the heat in the rest of the house — and the bill is higher than it was last month. Gas consumption was pretty much exactly the same, and electricity consumption was up a smidgen.
Fie on thee, electric heater, for teasing me with promises of warm offices and near-zero fuel bills. Fie.
