If you are looking for ways in which you can save some money on your winter heating bills, one option is to turn the thermostat down and learn to live with a little cooler temperature in your home. This is especially important if you, like many people these days, struggle trying to pay your winter heating bills. By simply lowering the thermostat by 1° you will be able to save approximately 5% on your heating bill. This just goes to show that for every degree you are able to reduce your indoor temperature, you will be able to save an additional 3% to 5% from your regular heating bill. You can also use an energy efficient oil filled radiator to help keep heating bills down and you comfortably warm. With one of these oil filled radiators you will be able to turn down the house thermostat and still keep warm without the high utility bills.
When compared with other kinds of electric space heaters, these oil filled radiators are superb in both heating ability and functional efficiency. They are also safe for use at night due to the fact that they have no open flame, there is also no open area which can accidentally touch something and start a fire like the old style of heated element space heaters used to do.
Purchasing an electric radiator will be a one time investment and the expense of running one of these small radiators will be quite minimal, especially when compared with heating an entire house. These space heaters are intended to keep you warm and will heat only the area you are in rather than the whole home. By using one or two of these units in your home, you are able to keep the areas of the house you frequent at a comfortable level while keeping the rest of the house cooler and saving on your heating bill.
