Forgetting to turn off the heater

I live in a small little house that doesn’t have great insulation when it comes to heating and cooling.

I love my little house and I don’t want to move because the rent is very affordable and I really like my landlord a lot.

However, it is really becoming a difficult task to heat my house every day. I want to walk into a warm house when I come home from work, but I know that is going to make my energy bill skyrocket. I don’t know if it’s worth it and I think it might be a little dangerous to have the heater running all day. Well, last week I left for work in a huge rush and I forgot to turn off my heater. I was worried about the heater all day, but I have to admit it was nice to come home to a warm and cozy house after being outside in the freezing temperatures. I didn’t think much of it after but had to remind myself that I shouldn’t let leaving the heater on become a habit. Well, about two weeks later when I got my electric bill I knew that it wasn’t going to become an issue because my bill went up over $50 for having the heater on just one day. I can’t imagine how much it would cost to do that everyday! I think I am going to have to start looking for a new way to heat my house!
