That’s a good question, because a lot of people use that type of heater without thinking about how much energy it uses.
A 1000-W portable heater used for 2 hours per day will cost about $30.96 plus tax for the heating season (6 months). Some people keep this type of heater running constantly. In that scenario, it could cost as much as $743 per heating season! That’s why it’s important to only use it when necessary.
