Stay Warm with an Oil Filled Radiator
Wintertime means those high heating bills that many of us dread. Thanks to recent changes at many power companies that saw decade long price-suppression measures finally expire, many people have been completely thrown by the jump in their electricity and gas bills. Fortunately it’s not necessary to be miserable inside your own home for fear of turning the thermostat up a degree or two.
With the higher prices, many articles appeared about how lowering your thermostat by a single degree can save about 5% on your heating bills. Setting your thermostat to 68 degrees or lower is recommended for energy conservation and financial savings. Some even recommend lowering it to about 55 degrees at night when people are in bed and can stay warmer with blankets and comforters. Of course, getting out of that warm bed when the house is 55 degrees in the morning might not make the savings seems quite worth it. And some who have financial difficulties might not have their thermostats set much higher even in the daytime.
Fortunately, there’s no need to be cold and miserable while trying to save money on heating costs. You can set your thermostat lower and simply use an oil filled radiator to stay cozy. They’re especially helpful if you do want to slash your bills by lowering your home’s temperature drastically at night. Radiator heaters, like the Honeywell oil filled radiator, cost very little to run and are far safer than many other types of space heaters. They’re so safe, that it’s perfectly all right to leave one running overnight while you sleep. You wouldn’t want to do that with an electric coil space heater or a halogen heater that lights up the area while it warms.
By running this kind of radiator you can lower your thermostat but keep your bedroom or any room you’re in at a more comfortable temperature for less.
