Help with Heating Bills

As we head into winter in the midst of a pandemic, many people are wondering, “How can I lower my heating bill?” Keeping the furnace going over the long winter months can be challenging. Today, host Rob West and Steve Moore talk about ways to save on heating and more.

 

·      With many families and individuals staying home, heating costs are going up. They no longer have the option to turn the heat off while they’re out of the house.

 

·      The Mayday Budget can help you prioritize your spending with limited income.

 

·      If you can’t pay your heating bill, call your utility provider and let them know your situation. They may be able to come up with a plan to allow you to keep having heat.

 

·      Be organized and be prepared to tell your utility provider about your current financial situation. Have your utility bill handy to discuss.

 

·      To see if you qualify for energy assistance under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance program, start by visiting the National Energy Assistance Referral website

 

Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on today’s program:

 

·      I have access to a matched 401(k) at my work. Would that be something I should invest in?

 

·      I’m 11 years old and I have about $300 in savings. What would you recommend I do with my savings?
