I can't take heat anymore, so winter and a warm shop are my friends.

We have hydronic electric baseboard throughout the house (3000 sq ft.) controlled by programmable thermostats. We also have 4 propane gas log stoves in area's we spend the most time also controlled by programmable thermostats. The gas log stoves are great (78%-82%) but they take awhile to get a room up to temp. So, we use use the base boards to accelerate the programmed warm up times then they go off after about 30 mins and it's all propane. We run 70 degrees 2 hours every morning and 4 hours in the evening, 63 degrees the rest of the time, and 70 degrees all weekend unless we're gone. It ends up being about 4000 per year all in and about 1200 of that is propane.

Hot Dawg hanging from the ceiling, runs on natural gas. I keep it at 55f so it's easy to warm up when I use it.

It hardly ever gets really cold here in central Tejas, but where we live the wind blows nearly all the time which is great in the warm months... chilly in the Winter! It's not Fall yet but the cooler weather right now is a welcome relief from our extended 100+ Summer days! Gorgeous today & was a pleasure working in the shop!
