Winter is here and with it comes colder temperatures. Space heaters can work great as a supplemental source of heat but you may want to consider using them sparingly as they can be costly to operate.

As an example, if a typical space heater ran 8 hours a day (at the cost of $.103 KWH), the monthly cost to run that space heater would be $37.08.
