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.
