My allotment for heating in my flat is down to 20 minutes a day in the mornings after my cold swim.
Last year I would run the heat all day and not worry about it, but now I have to be really frugal when it comes to the heat in my flat.
I guess the power companies are working on lowering the rates so people don’t freeze all winter, but it really makes me afraid to turn on my smart thermostat anymore. The whole world is in a bit of turmoil compared to how it normally is and we are all in this together trying to make it through. I will have some fun in a few weeks when I go home and see all of my family and friends and I can put this money thing on the back burner. My stepmom owes me a couple thousand bucks for some HVAC system repair work I did on her house last summer so I guess I could hit her up for that. She is going to wonder though why I am asking for more money when she just gave us kids $100K each from dad’s will. I’ll just tell her I invested in a local business and the stock took a huge nosedive and I can’t take any out right now or I will get killed. I guess we all have our own problems because the more I talk with other people the more I hear about all of their different worries. I’ll just keep doing the HVAC device work and hope for the best.
