So, last night made me think. It was very cold outside. Our propane service said they would be coming to fill our tanks this week - and it looks like they did NOT because we ran out of propane on the coldest night of the winter. We are in North Carolina - so it does not normally get this cold, but I am guessing it was around 11 degrees. I pulled out two space heaters, that I thought would do the trick - until THE POWER WENT OUT. We were stuck using the fireplace, which everyone knows is not energy efficient. Most of the heat went up the chimney... it did help a little... but not much. I was told, that our chimney pipe cannot handle a wood burning stove... when it was put in, it was hooked up to propane... I had it switched over so we could burn wood. I am tired of dealing with the propane company. What are your experiences with home heating, and what do you suggest?
