Heating? What heating?
So, our first monthly PG&E bill is in: and running that pilot light has cost us nearly $8. This seems a bit steep. So, today we turned the heater off altogether: we're now entirely passively heated.
(FWIW, kitchen lights 240W; living-room light 200W; vanity lights 120W; bathroom lights 75W; TV ~130W; PC ~150W; refrigerator peak ~750W, average maybe ~150W, depends on duty cycle.)
