Despite the fact that I run my A/C all afternoon long during the summer, it’s still cheaper to run compared to my heat.
I made this discovery during my first Winter time in this house, after running my AC all summer time long, I managed my monthly utility bills just fine.
I didn’t have any concerns paying the bills that arrived each month, so I continued running my gas furnace at the same capacity when Winter time rolled around, when I got my first utility bill after running my gas furnace, I was shocked! My initial reaction was to call the local Heating as well as A/C company as well as have them come maintenance my Heating as well as A/C equipment again; Something had to be terribly wrong with my gas furnace, even though an Heating as well as A/C professional had just ran tests on it a few weeks prior. I basically paid for nothing, because the Heating as well as A/C professional assured me that nothing was wrong with my gas furnace, then however, a gas furnace used 3 times more energy to heat a apartment compared to A/C. Since I had the gas furnace running always as well as at a higher temperature, my energy costs were higher. When I showed him my utility bill, he nodded as well as said that it looked normal if I was running my gas furnace as much as I was, the Heating as well as A/C professional recommended that I try running my gas furnace a few degrees lower. I have no option however to take his suggestion, because I can’t afford to keep paying such a high utility bill all winter.
