Here's a statistic that should jolt you, if you don't know about it already: Canada's already high home heating bills are expected to rise by 50 per cent this winter.
Heating your home or apartment is not just something you want to do during the winter months, it's something you need to do to survive. With energy prices soaring all year, many folks are actually scared, because they find it hard to pay the heating bills every winter, and this year may be the worst in history.
I live in a small apartment which is heated with baseboard electric, and it's very expensive. I usually only heat two rooms, sometimes three. My monthly heating bill used to average $250 during the winter months, sometimes closer to $300. My apartment is not insulated that good or built correctly, because the floor gets very cold during the winter and feels like a refrigerator during the cold months, requiring me to wear socks or slippers most of the time.
Making a few alterations I managed to lower my winter heat bill to an average of $150 per month, which is a nice savings for me. If you follow the tips I am giving you here, you should also be able to lower your winter heat bill nicely, and save yourself some money.
