Space heater information

This winter be aware before you plug in portable electric space heaters.
Electric space heaters may cost more than you think to operate. There are several different kinds of space heaters such as ceramic, radiant, tower, oil or infrared. What matters is, when it comes to your electric bill, is watts. Multiply watts by the hours and then divide by 1,000 to get Kilowatt hours or KWH. Example: 1,500 watts x 24 hours = 36,000 watts or 36 KWH. You will find using this calculation that one 1500 watt space heater is costing you almost $5.00 extra a day (.1375 per KWH) or $150.00 extra a month.
