29. 30% lower usage and $30 higher bill--$205
Edited on Tue Jan-10-06 10:34 AM by mnhtnbb
Last year we replaced our OLD pilot always on furnace with an energy efficient one, to the tune of $4,000!. Our gas bill showed 30% lower usage for the same number of days in Dec as the previous year, same average temperature, and the bill was $30 higher! However, both Progress Energy and Piedmont Natural Gas in NC have received approval to LOWER their rates from the State! I'll believe it when I see it in the bill.

We're in Chapel Hill. Our Dec bill was $205. for a 3000 sq ft house, average outside temp 52 degrees. We keep the thermostat at 68 daytime and down to 64 at night.
