Do space heaters save money?

The short answer is yes, you do save money by using a space heater versus heating our whole home. How much you save, however, depends on the size of your home and how many rooms are being heated. If you live in a small apartment, your savings may be minimal, however if you have a medium to large sized house and you spend most of your time in one room, you can save dollars each day by heating only one small space and keeping the rest of the house cool.
