Since the big (easy) move is less than a month away now, I decided that the time has come to set up the utilities in Nola with Entergy and the internet with Bellsouth (it’s what I use now and definitely the cheapest if you want internet service without phone or cable).
My new apartment has a gas stove and heater — I’m not sure how I feel about that. We’re going to get a Carbon Monoxide detector, so that eases my mind a bit.
Since I have no experience with gas, I decided to look up some more information about it and found out that the price of natural gas is apparently going up. However, here’s a good article that made me feel better about the gas heating — especially since I don’t have a dishwasher or washing machine.
This site has some great charts with specific price/energy differences between gas-operated and electric-operated appliances.
If you have any advice for natural gas heaters and stoves, let me know please.
