Hi guys, I have a very important question for you.
Okay, so my gf's mom has a heat pump (it's like 2yrs old only).
Now.. instead of leaving the heat on all the time at a low setting at the least in winter, she shuts it OFF completely most of the time, and always at night, and instead uses those little electric wall plug in heaters in 2 rooms (her mom and her daughters room).
My question is, which one will cost more money in the long run? She is trying to save money, but is what she is doing really truly cost efficient or is it perhaps costing her more, OR is it about the same?
It gets soo cold at night throughout the house when you goto the bathroom you can feel your bones freeze practically.. yet she thinks she is saving so much from this so she does it.
I'd love to hear what you guys have to say about this.
P.S the heater in question that she uses resembles this kind of thing: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en
It's a little portable heater that you plug into the wall.
She uses 2 of them that will stay on all night(and day if she didn't put the heat pump on) in different rooms
