@legendornothing I feel your pain. I moved from metro NYC, into a place 2x bigger out in southeast Ohio. I was in panic mode, because its all electric. I do a happy dance every time I get my bill…it’s 1/3 of ConEd kilowatt cost. Happy happy happy at that and infinitely better customer service.
@RiotDemon heat and hot water (and water in general) is included in the rent, yes. which is common in boston. however tenants usually still have access to a thermostat, although i’m not sure any in previous places i lived really worked all that well anyway.
(eta: we pay electric & gas. the heat/hot water is oil.)
