How much do you use your heaters in the winter? What do you think is the most economical heater to use?

Instead of turning the central air on at night we use electric heater in our bed room. I set the programmable thermostat to kick in right before we wake up.

We use wood pellet burners in Texas - amazing how well they work and create hardly any smoke but you still get that nice wood burning smell. Take a look at http://www.hometips.com/cs-protected/guides/pel... for some good tips.

Depending on where you live and your climate you can generate approximately 46 to 76% of your hot water using solar energy and this will translate in reducing your energy bills by about 50 to 80%. Have a look this article for more info Solar Water Heating.
