When I lived up north, I experienced some pretty brutally freezing Winters.
I relied on the central heat in my house to keep me warm, and my mother and stepfather tried their best to keep the central heat at a satisfactory temperature so they could save money on their electric bill.
My sibling and I did not understand why my mother and stepfather were so set in their ways about the thermostat being at a unique temperature! Now that we are adults and we are responsible for paying our own electric bills, we have a better understanding of why it is important to try our best to save money on electric bills, and when you have so many bills to pay, it is important to try and save where you can. There are ways to save money on your electric bill and keeping the thermostat at a satisfactory temperature is one of them. When I got older and moved out to my own home, I immediately realized that I had to change my habits to save money on my bills. I like to crank the heat up when it is freezing out, although I had to stop that. I decided to purchase a space furnace for my home, then one of my friends told me that her space furnace saves her a lot of money on her electric bill every week, so I figured I would try it. I purchased a space furnace when it was on sale for black Friday. My home is not honestly big, but it is old so it does cost a lot to heat. I tried the space furnace for the first time, and it heated my entire living room quickly.
