NY Times Is Here To Tell You How To Save Money On Your Biden Inflated Power Bills

This is what it’s come down to: the Times and so many other Credentialed Media outlets telling you how to maybe save money, rather than castigating the Government to stop being part of the problem, namely, policies that cause energy prices to go higher (paywalled Times article here)

How to Save on High Heating Bills This Winter

The cost of heating a home is expected to spike this winter as higher prices for natural gas and heating oil combine with a forecast for slightly colder weather than last winter.

But financial help is often available for paying bills as well for updating heating systems to more efficient models. There are also steps to take to conserve energy.

The average cost of heating a home is estimated to rise almost 18% from last winter, to $1,208, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association. The group coordinates state policy for federal grants that help low-income families pay heating and cooling bills.

The estimated seasonal bill for natural gas, which about half of Americans use to heat their homes, is $900, up 25% from last winter, according to the most recent data from the federal Energy Information Administration. Natural gas has become pricier because of factors such as greater demand for cooling during this year’s scorching summer (natural gas powers plants that produce electricity to run air conditioners) and surging exports, the administration said.

The seasonal bill for heating oil, which is common in New England, is estimated to be $2,694, up about 45% from last winter.

It’s due to Wuhan Flu and to the policies of Joe Biden and his Democratic Party comrades, who keep doing things that create problems, both before and after COVID. The U.S. really doesn’t get much from Russia, we have our own supplies.

Help with heating bills is available for low-income families. The Biden administration is distributing $4.5 billion for the federal Low Income Home-Energy Assistance Program, which provides grants to states to help residents pay their energy bills. But, Wolfe said, overall funding is lower than last year, under a pandemic relief program, and more federal money may be needed.

Well, that only helps folks making around $20K or less. What about the rest of us?

Consumers can take steps now to prepare for the winter and conserve energy. “It’s November; there’s still time to get ready,” Wolfe said. Heating contractors are typically less busy right now, he said, before temperatures plummet.

The most widely recommended step: Schedule a professional checkup of your heating system. A tuneup is advisable because dirty components reduce airflow, blunting performance and possibly damaging the system, according to ASHRAE, a professional association of heating and cooling professionals. A tuneup typically costs $200 or more, but some utilities cover the cost.

So, spend money to save a little

If your home has a lot of windows, particularly older ones, you may be losing energy through the glass. One easy fix, he said, is to stick clear plastic Bubble Wrap — the kind used to ship packages — over the windowpanes. (Spray the glass with water first so the wrap sticks.) It won’t look great, he conceded, but it will save you money.

Really? This is their idea? Bubble wrap? I feel like it’s the 1930s or something

You could consider replacing an old heating system with a more efficient model. The costs range from $4,000 to $7,000 for a gas furnace and from $5,500 to $40,000 or more for some heat pump systems, according to estimates provided by contractors in western and central New York state.

They seriously wrote $40,000. Is this with your $20K solar panels and $56K EV?

Meanwhile, here’s CNET on the perfect setting for your winter thermostat

According to the US Department of Energy, it’s best to keep your thermostat at 68 F for most of the day during the winter season. For maximum efficiency, you should also designate eight hours per day during which you turn the temperature down by between 7 and 10 degrees. By following this routine, you may again be able to reduce your yearly energy costs by up to 10%.

Who’s up for keeping your casa at 58-61?

    Regardless of how much or how little oil is pumped in the USA we in the USA must pay the global oil price set by Trump’s friends, the Arabs and the Russians. We are pumping more oil here today than the average pumped daily under Trump. Teach wants our dependence on fossil fuels to continue as long as possible, even though the price is under the control of countries that are not friends of the USA.
    Electricity prices are supposed to increase 8% from 2021.
    EV car sales in USA are continuing their “normal” 50% per year sales increase

      Once again, moron, the global price is no more set by the Russians and Saudis than it is by pedo joe. All you need to do is ask a futures investor and he’ll tell you prices are set by buyers and sellers in the market.

      “Trump’s friends, the Arabs and the Russians”? Considering it’s the democommie party that is raping the American people through oil prices and not Trump we find that amusing. You do realize Trump is no longer president nor has he any political power. Everything you see around you that is all fuked up is on the democommies who run everything and have for almost 2 years. Or are you too stupid to see that or too corrupt to admit it?

      BTW, when you say “Trump’s friends, the Arabs and the Russians” you left out the Iranians and Iraqi’s, the Nazi’s, the KKK, the ACLU, the John Birch Society, Qanon, The Proud Boys, and every other terror group and evil club ever made from the serpent in Eden to the drug cartels.

      Your psychopathy knows no bounds.

      Carbon offset boy-you really had me worried there, but you came through like a champ fitting Trump into your “post “. But come on, you’re late with another carbon offset story.

  2. H says:

    Yes buyers and sellers set the price
    However the sellers are the big oil exporters who are Russia and the Arabs who are the only ones who have the ability to pump more
    The buyers? Well they are the ones who MUST BUY the oil at the price set by the sellers. Supply and demand? Well the demand is not fungible. It can not be reduced because of energy addiction without severe consequences which we are seeing now.

    The USA is pumping the same amount today as the average under Trump. But prices are much higher because we pay the global market price set mostly by the Arabs
    I left out Trump’s other friends not really germane. Lol
    When your debate rebuttal can consist only of personal attacks it shows everything.
    I am rubber
    You are glue
    What you say bounces off me
    And sticks to you

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      I did not use pesonal attacks. I posted observations easily made by any honest person.

      Mincing and twisting words to try and make market world forces seem like they are run by a guy who isn’t in office, hasn’t been since Jan 2021, has no influence on prices, is not “friends” with any of the people you keep claiming is not an argument. They are excuses.

      Pedo joe is responsable for every problem in America. Well, he and your democommie party. You guys have been and still are in charge. You control the agencies, the bureaucrats, the media, industry, education information and even sports. Why do you insist on pointing your finger at we with no power?

      Accept responsability for what you do you pussies. Man up (or aren’t you pink hat types allowed to say that any more). Go place a few mor commies and fags and trannies in positions of power and tell us how virtuous they are.

      If everything I say bounces off of you that could explain a lot about yoyr inability to learn and accept reality It can also explain what a rubber idiot looks like. Bounce, bounce.

      “Who have the ability to pump more…” Except they’re not, looking at the latest figures. So we still have the US at 18.7 million BPD, and Saudi Arabia and Russia at about 20 million BPD. Again, some effect, but they don’t set the price

    • Jl says:

      Carbon boy-why are you so afraid of Trump? Did you hear the news yet? He’s not in office anymore..

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        Did you not hear that PedoDon is planning on running for president in 2024? We think you are just upset that so many people criticize your uffish leader.

        Now that Pedo has been exposed as a loser his borderline supporters are heading for the exits.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          Are you still bitchin about Trum? BTW, you guys should be more concerned about you daughter raping pedo joe than Trump.

  3. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    ggesting we put our money into FTX crypto like pedo joe’s ologarch pals in the Ukraine did? Now suddenly POOF! $40 billion of our tax dollars just disappeared. Well, except for to estimated $16 million used to purchase “art” from Hunter that is. But that was washed into Swiss accounts with 10% to The big Guy.

    Looks like big democommie donors used this election not only to steal (again with month long voting, mail in voting, weeks of counting and harvesting) the election which now is as expected as being called “racist” if you support Trump but also to launder $40 million into the democommie party. Way to go Schumer/pedo!

    The ukrainians are also selling the equipment we give them and rolling that cash to Wall Street and (as usual) the democommie party.

    Let’s go DeSantinistas.

    Why was Kim Jong Un left out of your “Friends of Trump” list ?
    They wrote love letters to each other

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      I just over looked him. I missed a few like Gengis Kahn, Torqamanda all the Kims. Just like one needn’t be alive to vote for a democommie neither do they need to be alive to be a friend of Trump. We understand that if Trump talks to someone or sends a letter to them it must be evil. Even though he got Rocket Man to stop shooting off rockets which is something Pedo joe can’t seem to master.

      H, you really need to have a professional address your obsession with Trump. It ain’t healthy I tell ya.

    Pedo was shown to have feet of clay. “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
