    Wasnít me, honest. Although I did think about it.

    We have oil and we just got 100 gallons and it was $132.

    This is the first place we havenít had at least a small wood stove in. We really miss that, being able to come in and dry off those wet gloves and such. Not to mention sitting on it when itís really cold to warm up those buns.

    I have a 1500 sq ft log home, I use a combination of, electric, propane and wood. While we are home we use the fireplace insert wood burner to heat the logs up (they act as a huge storage cell and release the heat back into the home at night, kind of a passive solar in reverse) while we use the wood burner our 93% propane furnace never kicks on and our bedrooms being closed off we use 220 volt baseboard electric, plus I ducted the bedrooms to the furnace. Where we live power outages for days on end are very common so that's why the triple heat source. We do have the house wired for a generator but it runs only the real important things-furnace (if needed-I like the fireplace) well, fridge, freezer and lights in living room,kitchen and bathroom. We were able to lock in our propane rate @ $1.15 a gallon, we have a 500 gallon tank so we only fill twice a year and I have firewood forever around here.

    I`m all electric but when the temps drop i fire up the old Timberline wood stove to help hold down the cost.Before i started burning wood i received a bill one month for around $380, needless to say it won`t happen again.

    we have the wood stove at my house burning 24/7 when its "cold" out

    When we bought this house it had electric baseboard heaters and a heatalator fire place, then we installed an oil furnace for the next winter. Your pole should also ask about heating the playroom(garage), mine is heated by a propane furnace,which I keep at 60 deg during the day and 45 deg at night, but I do have a spare small wood burning stove that I could use as we live on a bush lot and have lots of extra wood. Good day, Henry.
