well, i know what i would do. My power bill was on average $650 a quarter. not bad for a small two bedroom unit that we are almost never home in. That is about $200 more than then average 4 bedroom house with teenagers Shocked

I went through about 4 months ago and replaced all of my cheaper brand heaters (combo of resun and a few other un-identifiable ones) with Jagers and my last power bill was $280 for the quarter...OVER WINTER!!! That is just crazy! Sure the swap was expensive but in the long run it will take me 12 months to pay off the heaters and they will last for at least 3 times that as they are guaranteed for 3 years Smile

Gotta love Jagers!
