gas furnace usage equals rediculous electric bill?

7 years ago

Hi All,
It's summer here in the US, so I'm not using the heater currently. I figured now is a good time to take a look at it.

During the winter, when we use the gas heater, the electric bill skyrockets. I understand the gas usage increasing since we go from just stove/oven/water gas heating to furnace heating.

However, I did not expect the electricity to increase by so much. My electricity is as high as my gas usage!

Is this normal? Is there something wrong with my heater/blower?

Any help, tips, pointers is greatly appreciated.
