my 1100 sq. ft apartment just gave me a $350 heating bill for the last 30 days (gas bill for hot water baseboard heat). i am wondering what i can do to drop this as much as possible. i am on the 1st floor of a 3 floor, 2 apartment house, so i know i am helping to heat the upstairs as well as my own place. i was thinking about getting some of that clear film you tape over the windows and then use a hairdryer on to make it taut. i keep my heat at about 68 degrees on the thermostat and i live in New England so it gets cold outside.
