Stayseeliz Posted October 30, 2012 Share Posted October 30, 2012 We have gas heat which I HATE. It's very expensive and very "drying". It heats up the house fast but it's just overwhelming. We rarely use it. When it's really cold we'll kick it on first thing in the morning and get the house warmed up then close off most rooms and keep everyone in the kitchen/living room for the day and use space heaters. We do have a wood fireplace but I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of that either. It just stinks too much. We've thought about gas logs but I wonder if that would be as expensive as the gas heat. Any thoughts on economical ways to heat the house? I'd be particularly interested in something to keep in the kids room at night that is safe to leave on all night. We don't leave space heaters on at night. We have electric blankets and tons of other blankets. Our house is small-around 1000 sq ft but older. I don't think it's well insulated. We live in the South but close enough to the mountains that we need something to heat the house November-March. Any thoughts?? Thanks!
