From the Forums: Have You Turned on The Heat Yet?
Treehuggers, have you turned on your heat yet?
I realize that the answer to this question is heavily dependent on where you live, but I still think it's interesting.
I live in NJ and haven't had to turn on the heat yet this year. My goal was to get to November 1st, but the weather has been cooperating nicely, and I may not have to turn it on for a few more weeks. In previous years, November has been when my electric bill spikes (as we have electric heat), so every day of delaying the inevitable will save plenty of energy and money.
