There is always the question on here about to heat or not to heat and what to use, but we rarely talk about what our heating costs us aside from installation (in utilities), comparing one type to another.
We have a combustion heater, which is in our front room, at the front of the house, and we usually only use it nights and weekends, which means the house is cold in between, takes some time to heat up, and our entire house doesn't heat up as we have a pretty large house (4 bedrooms and an almost full basement).
Of course, this means we barely go over $200 a quarter in electricity bills (also have new heat pump water heater - electric as no gas hook up to the house).
I am considering getting some type of ducted heater in addition, once we have a few insulation measures in place (new windows, underfloor insulation for the rooms with hardwood floors). So many people say it's expensive to run one of these....but then lots of people have them too. Just curious - what do you pay to run one of these per quarter (electric or gas, small or large house)?
