    My home has an electric furnace, but we had a pellet stove installed which the stove does use some power (maybe $2. a mo.) it takes us approx. 2 tons of pellets for the winter, costing us $150./per ton, so our heating costs for the winter is about 300. and we haven't turned on the furnace in 2yeas now.

    we have natural gas, *a first for me* i am use to oil, so i thought that the natural gas was like oil and you had to fill a tank. NOPE. Hello heaven, i am so sad sometime. I find that it is alot cheaper than oil or electric though. and the cool thing is we never run out in the middle of the night.

    We have an oil furnace with hot water base board heat.
    We also have a 2 kerosene heaters as back up, cuz when
    we loose power (happens alot) no heat, no water etc....
    We always keep about 20 gallons of water in the basement
    for this kind of emergency. Came in real handy during the
    big blizzard about 8 years ago. No power for 3 days!
    When we remodeled the kitchen, I got a gas stove.
    I can now at least cook.

    Also another reason I want to make Lori's Mason Jar Oil Lamps!
    Can't wait to get started!

    Natural gas...which is expensive here. used to be cheaper than electric, but now is the same if not more. We also have a woodstove, but unless we cut our own wood, we're looking at 150.00 a cord, and 4 cords for the winter...600.00 I dont think so! so we are biting the bullet and paying for our old as dirt and inefficient gas furnace to get us through.

    Natural gas here. Thank goodness we only have to use the heat about 3 weeks each year. Natural gas is outrageous here - we also have it for our water heater and our gas bill each month is ridiculous for what little hot water we use.

    Natural gas and a fireplace. Our sun room has only a fireplace, so we use it for cold storage in the winter! LOL

    Everything I have is electric too. Our bill averages 150.00 a month. I don't complain as long as it doesn't go higher than that!
