EPA Bans Most Wood-Burning Stoves | Survival
I have always wanted a wood stove in theory. I love having a warm spot to go to and roast until I am comfortable Does anyone have experience with natural gas stoves? The ceramic, radiant variety that can be fit into an existing fireplace? Much cleaner and less work than wood stoves, but do they feel the same? I wonder.

Just turned the heat on. I think my husband, left to his own devices, would never turn it on.

Ours went back on to 65*. Got a little chilly in here Sunday night. Hope to keep it off again for a while though!

My guess is that tonight is the night the heat will kick on. The house has gotten to 68 and I have set the heat to kick on at 66. Not needing heat until 11/12 blows my mind, especially as an ex NYer.

Turned mine on last night. Sleep temp set at 60, day temp at 64. After having to spend the summer in Florida where it was like a sauna I have no complaints with chilly weather!

Seriously....

We had our first freeze over 3 weeks ago; and it's gotten down into the 30s most nights since then.

Granted I live in an apartment that isn't insulated very well and I'm assuming most who say they haven't turned their heat on yet live in more solidly built/insulated homes.

I think some people use turning on the heat as a vehicle to prove their bravado or toughness, not saying the posters here are doing that. I know a dude who claims not to turn the heat on until it is in the 20s outside, but I know for a fact his family thinks he is an ogre about climate control. If your family is shivering, why would one withhold heat from them? Moreover, I like being able to walk around my apartment in a tshirt and shorts without shoes on. I know of some people that wear sweaters in their own homes because they are too stingy to turn on the heat. I am sorry, but I work for a reason, and being comfortable in my own home is one reason. Not saying anyone here is stingy or survivalist.
