Caution: Electric Space Heaters Create Much Higher Electric Bills
Did you use an electric space heater during the recent extreme cold snap? If so, you can expect your electric bill to be much higher than normal. The typical electric space heater, (like the one pictured) uses 1,500 watts (which is 1.5 kWh) per hour. If you used an electric space heater for 18 hours in a day, that would be 27 kWh's of electricity consumed per day by that space heater. If you used it the same amount of hours each day for thirty days, you would consume 810 kWh's of electricity with that one space heater, which would cost you $96.39 on your electric bill, just for the use of that one space heater. Then, when you add in the amount of electricty consumed by your furnace, clothes dryer, lighting, water heater, and other appliances and electronics, many people will see an much higher than normal electric bill.
