Funny to ask in the summer

How do you eat your house in the winter months? We have a wood pellet stove that heats our downstairs, we stil use our electric baseboard heat to keep the upstairs warm. When we first moved into our house 16 years ago, the first winter was brutal. Each room had their own thermostat, we would set it and we would still be cold. Then the electric bill came in and we would scream. I didn't mind paying the money if the house would have stayed warm. So we got a pellet stove and have loved it. In fact, our first became old we moved into our sunroom and we have a newer one now. It keeps the downstairs of our cape cod nice warm. I was just reading about a multi-burn furnance and was wondering if anyone knew what they were? Sounds interesting.

This is actually a good question to ask as it is winter her in SOUTH AFRICA. Lately I use a paraffin heater to heat up my home (it's quite safe and not smoky at all). Initially I used an electrical oil heater which took up a lot of the electricity but didn't satisfy me where heating the house was concerned. You had to be close to it to feel the heat.

Thanks for the response. I have never heard of a paraffin heater. I know what paraffin is, just never thought of the two of them together. Will have to explore it a little more.
