I have a lint trap on my clothes dryer that vents inside the room.

I will take a light silk layer of underwear and a thicker wool sweater every time in winter

In addition we turned it down to 62 after receiving this bill and we are wearing 4 sets of clothes and wool socks. We are looking for a way to heat without electricity without being gouged at 4-6000 or more for a catalytic heater/stove. All we are trying to do is heat an area estimated at 600 sq. ft. We are sleeping in a cold room with at least 4 blankets and that seems okay after getting warm. I have to sleep with gloves on in case my hands are outside of cover. I need help in advice and what we can buy that is reasonable because my husband has Parkinson's and can't build stuff anymore. Any ideas??? Anybody?? Sorry forgot to say we have all electric and we do have led bulbs in light fixtures and most cooking is done on stove top..not oven! Thanks!!
