    Well, here's one for you....

    I currently use wood, (outdoor boiler of my own design and build)

    BUT... We will be moving to this (a downdraft gasifier hooked to a GM 350, running a 50 Kw AC generator)

    If you don't belive me... here's my webpage about it....

    I use natural gas for the furnace, electric in the garage (those halogen work lights are great heaters too - until spring when I can dig a trench for gas - its -25C here this morning)

    How many halogen work lights do you use, I've thought about that from time to time myself.

    Anyone insulate their garage door too? Parts of the world might do that if I remember right, in Texas it's just sheet metal.

    Natural Gas, have an old wood burning fireplace in the livingroom, but don't use it very often. Gotta have the heat going up here (Alberta). Gas bill was $350 last month, had a two week cold snap where temps stayed at -30 to -40 (pretty rare though)
