    Are all of the electric ( portable ) heaters all the same ? We switched to a gas log fireplace 10 years ago but here in ohio natural gas is goin up 50 percent ! We tried an old electric heater we had and it seemed to work fine but might cost just as much as using the gas fireplace . How about the oli filled heaters w/o a blower ? any suggestions ? thanks BH

    Ask your boss for a raise.

    There really isn't a way to beat the rates without upgrading your central HVAC.

    Time to change that gas log fireplace to a woodburning one, until the price of wood goes up.We have plenty of wood here in Florida thanks to the hurricanes....
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    Electric heat is 100% efficent. Fancy new heaters can't realy do any better. If you want to spend money: insulate.
