I recognized that the electric rates went way up recently, because my power bill is well over double what it was last year at this time.
I am going to have to absolutely curb my A/C usage as I’ve been keeping it pretty cold here lately.
I’ll buy another fan, or several, as well as turn off the heating and A/C system. In the wintertime I will just wear more clothes as well as keep the heat usage to a minimum because I can’t afford another $600 bill. It’s almost like I have another darn rent payment due each month when the utility bills come in. I recognize that the solution is for me to get a flatmate. I have a friend who works at the heating and cooling business who is looking for a room, so I will unquestionably rent to her. She works early in the day and isn’t home till well into the night, which is when I am at the beach playing ball, so we both won’t be in each other’s way much in the flat. I believe she does heating and A/C component updates as well as repairs at the local business. And from what I’ve heard she is absolutely great at her work. It all works out, so I’m not distraught about any of this cash stuff. Money always comes in when I need it so it’s all good. I work selling unusual heating and A/C brands online and I may just try to drum up some more work myself to help cover the cost of the increase in bills. It’s not like inflation is something new to any of us.
