Use regular heat, it is cheaper and safer. Turn the air up a little while you are not home. Also, good windows will help a ton. Seal them with plastic if you can, and place a towel at the bottom of the doors if they are drafty.

NOO. space heaters are bad, they will cost you more in electric then what you pay in heat. They have been saying that appilaices on standby use alot of electric. Are your windows new and insulated? that can save on heat.

Stop paying your bill and they’ll turn it off. At that point your utility bill will be $0. This is the best answer because you can’t get any lower than that.
