this
is an electric heater I am thinking of purchasing. Currently I have propane and it runs me 400/month on the budget payment plan. This is with plastic over all the windows etc.

This unit averages $1.00 to $1.50/day and heats up to 1000 sq foot. So they say.......... Looking for opinions and experiences. If it is as good as it says, then the $450 price tag would about pay for itself in the first two or three months of hard winter.

Does anyone use anything that is better maybe?

I thought that electric heat was even more expensive than other options. We have a woodstove to supplement our "heat pump" system (which the heat pump has emergency electric heat also). I think having a kerosene heater is good for real cold spells and emergency heat when electric is out.

Were putting in used wood stove this winter. I'm hoping it helps with the oil bill!

Just a thought... you might get more hits on this thread if you put it in the coop section, and change the header to "Need opinions on this heater"...

IDK about that one. We have an electric one we use in the bathrooms. I think ours cost 40$ and we have had it for 3 years.

We have a wood burning heater. We have had it for 9 years now and it works awesome. We don't have any heating costs for the winter. We cut down our own firewood so we don't even have that for a cost. It is nice not to worry about heating bills....if only we could figure out some AC that isn't costly LOL

i believe thats what our heat pump system is... although its 20 years old and in need of replacing. There might be some variations of this type of heating and cooling i believe... so maybe your geothermal works differently than our heat pump. I believe ours does not extract from underground - just ambient air. And it must be different because I can't imagine quoting our heat bill as $60 a month. definately not in the winter. we still see $200+ on our electric bill

Goe system is high, some say it pays off in the long run though.
One of my Dh's friend put one in his 2400 sq. foot home and their bill is higher than ours

. We have a heat pump on our system. Although we are currently in the process of putting in a woodstove this week. I hate paying a high electric bill
