Yes the cost of electricity has to be figured in but that's offset to an extent by using a space heater to warm one room which lets you keep the house thermostat lower and save on oil. That may not be a cost effective option if you need to warm much of the home but for one room I think it definitely is a money saver.

Also the tower space heater I mentioned blasts heat for about five minutes and then shuts off for maybe an hour. It warms the room quickly without needing to be on a long time.

If you put a $20 humidifier in your BR - if you feel you need it - it won't make anything too moist, trust me. It gets SO DRY in the winter. I really only try to use them if we are getting a lot of nosebleeds though (one of my kids gets hellacious epic nosebleeds so when he starts with them I know it's time to break out the humidifier).

if u have forced-air heating, as it's a popular choice in NE. get this:
Honeywell Flow-Through Bypass Humidifier-HE240A at The Home Depot
those stand-alone humi. from CVS are not worth the trouble.

OK. I will watch for nosebleeds with my son. So far, he is fine. Of course we are just getting into cold weather.

Thanks for the suggestions for humidifiers and for space heaters.
