House here is rebuilt and up for sale. Will be going to Williston. Just
in time for Feb. Haven't seen snow and the coldest I've seen in past 3
yrs is 15...once. They had red warning bars on TV from the NWS about the
deathly bitter cold. Heck, back there it's a party because the rock salt
starts working when it gets up to 15! I think I have a little
re-acclimation to do:-(
That's what I'm doing (rebuilding the house). It'll be up for sale
in January, I hope.
Well, in Feb. you might see 15F once here too, but that'll be the
high. ;-) It's been so wet here (something like 50% above normal
rain) the frost line will likely be down so far the Chinese will
have cold feet. ;-)
Buy good boots and make sure your car battery is in good shape.
I'm not the OP but I do live in NYC and buy my electricity from Con
Ed. My October bill was $102.13 for an energy consumption of 480 KWH.
That includes everything, taxes, adjustment factor etc. and works out
to $0.21 per KWH. If I had have consumed less than 258.3 KWH (!) my
rate would have been about 10% higher and of course if I had have
consumed only one KWH the cost per KWH would have been $11.78 <g>. I
suspect that the rate in the pdf file you quoted "Market Supply
Charge" is the actual cost of electricity not including the delivery
charge (or the delivery charge not including the cost of electricity).
If it uses a thermostat to switch the heater on and off to maintain the
operating temperature you could probably place a box shaped cover over
it when it's not in use, perhaps just some glued up pieces of styrofoam
sheet. That could reduce the heat losses considerably.
However, from the way you describe the switch labeling, there's a good
chance that it doesn't use a thermostat, in which case forget my
suggestion because things might get dangerously hot if the natural heat
losses are reduced.

There must be a label on it somewhere that lists the wattage. Post
the wattage on here and someone can figure it out for you. Otherwise
What is this thing for anyhow?
What does "aching parts" mean?
