    I dont use heater in my house, but I have 2 tents in my bedroom, 2 birds one stone lol.
    Heat is definitely expensive, and I have a warm blanket and wear a sweater around the house and to bed.
    Ill just make small buds if they aren't worth trimming into a tincture or oil or something this time maybe. Will be a first time, but gotta learn sometime.
    I actually have some crap from my outdoor grow that might be good to use to learn

    What you really need is better insulation.

    I am a renter, but I had insulation added here and it saves me lots of money heating and cooling.

    moving into the house would solve my problems but so will insulation which is easier for now my utility bill for the whole house was under $140.00 November was $98.00 I heat a lot with wood the shop I have the grow in is separate from the house the only insulation is in 2 walls of the growroom & the ceiling I'm gonna definatly improve on that

    Im not as cold in Cali as other places, but my bill was $102.07 running 2 tents.
    I am always walking around turning off lights behind my daughter. She will pull out the portable heater on set it to high not the temp setting and go to bed with it blasting non stop.
    I get up and turn it down to 70...kids

    I'll take the subzero temperature, lethal windchill, and the 8 feet of Atlantic and Lake Effect snow that hammers Fort Drum nine months out of the year before I ever put up with the heat of Georgia again.

    My grow keeps me warm in my bedroom in the winter though

    Win/win, because it will also help hold excess summer heat out.

    Northern Colorado is really pretty darn temperate; -20 is right about the extreme of cold and it doesn't do that every winter, 104 is the record high here and we don't see 100 every summer. The best part is that due to high altitude and low humidity these extremes don't FEEL nearly as bad as they sound.

    it's raining today & im cool with that as it warms up to rain & makes my little heater not work as hard for now I'm just gonna quit sniveling & pay the bill until I can revamp my room it's not perfect but it is working although not as efficient as I would like...it could be worse if I can keep heat at mid 60s daytime light on no heat & nighttime lights out heat on at about high 60s-low 70s I think I'll get through this next move is to get something on the north wall to replace the wool army blanket I have tacked up there now & I have a roll of thermal barrier that they put in new homes I'm gonna line the inside of my room as soon as I get the 2 uninsulated walls done IMG_0484.JPG IMG_0485.JPG IMG_0486.JPG IMG_0487.JPG

    I suffered a heat stroke here on a hot summer day here like 5 years ago. Seems like my heat tolerance is much reduced now.
    It was 114*F that day, and I was outside from 8 am till 4pm when I passed out
