Refunds - More Money

We were sent a letter from our Electrical Company saying that the deposit we paid to open up a new account a year and a half ago, was being refunded ($118.54) . I was going to request a refund check then thought, maybe I should just leave it in there as payment for the following month or two. What do you do if you were getting a refund for something like this? Would you request a refund check or leave it in there and use the funds towards the next months bills?

i request the check, sometimes they pay interest on the money, since they've 'held' it for your for 18 months. if you leave it in there and have them deduct your onths from it, the interest stops... just my opinion acourse
