Why are my electric bills so high even though I make great efforts to conserve?

It’s never a pleasant surprise when your bill seems higher than normal. The cost of heating your home increases as the outside temperature in winter drops. The extent that this affects your electric bill depends on your life style and how energy efficient your home was built: i.e., insulation values of walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows, skylights; type of heating system; amount of air infiltration; solar orientation; and floor space or volume of your home.
