    #152 8 months ago

    Ha!
    Heating is cheaper than cooling. It’s easier on the wallet than you south and east where gets humid and hot as balls. The cold has finally broke and it’s very decent out lately, fuckin finally !!

    Doesn't that depend on how you are doing it? I've heard heating oil is expensive as hell.

    Yes, I have natural gas. heating oil is not cheap. A home a couple homes back of mine had oil, its good heat, just costly, yes.
    Can't beat a good wood furnace, free heat if you're a go-getter!! HA!

    My parents have a wood furnace and it heats the whole main floor. They have baseboard heaters upstairs. Wood furnace heat has a feeling to it that you just can’t get with any other type. Every year I still go out to help my dad cut firewood for the winter.

    When we build our next home I'm doing a boiler and in floor heating, with heat loss/recovery fans above doors. Super efficient.

    On a side note. How'd everyone do on their heating bills during that crazy long cold stretch? Our gas bill for February was $101 and March was $90. Rest of winter was around $70.
    1970s 1000 sq2 bungalow.

    #161 7 months ago

    $325 for March. That's heat and electric combined. Based on house size, our numbers are pretty close.

    #162 7 months ago

    Ours was $640 for gas and electricity for february, january was $320. Have to love all the admin fees they charge.

    #163 7 months ago

    ~240$ american for gas in the cold months. Inefficient house built in 1916

    #164 7 months ago

    My house is brand new, 9 months old. So it "should" have all the best money saving materials used. I was a little surprised at my bill, thought it would be less.

    Does Stern built houses in Canada?

    Quoted from MrBally:

    No, thank god. What I meant was, the government yearly puts in new updates to building code to save energy. They even updated my house half way through the build which really pissed me off because it made my staircase tighter.

    I've heard of folks getting some pretty crazy power bills because their "smart" thermostat was using aux heat way too much.

    1500 sq ft bungalow with full basement, my gas bill was $151 for Feb.

    #169 7 months ago

    My two boys had a baseball game last night here. Both on 15U team here, and down 6-0 after 1 but rallied and won 9-8, so cool, BUT not why i'm posting.

    It frickin' snowed last night and woke up to another fuckin' winter wonderland. Covered in white. So...........sad...

    #172 6 months ago

    We had snow recently too. On Sunday morning the ground was completely covered, but it melted by late afternoon. And then yesterday as I was walking home on my lunchbreak, it was snowing. Bah! Silly prairie weather....
