Some time ago we bought an electric heater to add a little extra boost to our living room. It was advertised as using virtually no electricity. During the month of December when things get fairly chilly up at 6,750 feet, we used it to warm up the center of our living area. It was quite efficient. Then the electric bill came in. Holy smoke! Foolishly the electric company gives one a little graph to show you your usage compared to other months; we had gone through a lot. We cut out the heater immediately. Yesterday last month's bill came in and it was half the amount. I guess energy efficiency is a flexible term!
