Electric heaters might be inexpensive to buy, but they are not inexpensive to operate. A typical 1,200-watt electric heater left on just four hours each day will add about $30 to your monthly electric bill. That’s about $1 per day, or $0.25 per hour of operation.
Sometimes electric heaters can be useful. For example, say you want to heat a specific room for a short period of time. Rather than turn up the thermostat for the entire house, you could plug in an electric heater.
You have the Power to Use Less. One of the common culprits of high electric bills is electric heaters. Know the cost before you plug in.
